1) Aussie Couloir Well, the Aussie Couloir was never reached, but good
skiing was had on the glacier.  Pics:

2) Whitewater Kayaking A whole bunch of stoked newbies hit the Seymour
River.  Thanks to Devon for organizing.

3) Lynn Valley to Grouse Mountain Jamie and Line tried to hike from
Lynn Valley to Grouse Mountain.  Unfortunately they found way too much
snow and had to turn back.  Also unfortunately they left their car in
the Lynn Valley lot after the gate was closed, so a search and rescue
operation was initiated.  Thankfully they survived and no rescue was
required.  Don't park your car past the gate if you won't be back by
dark!  Full TR:

II. Upcoming Events and Trip

1) Climbing and Fishing, Kamloops, June 16-17
Steve Lerch sends this message along:

Why go to Skaha pay 10$ for parking and 10$ for camping when you can
come to Kamloops and do all that for Free. Do you like climbing and
fishing and want to explore some of those smaller crags?

Here is what I propose. We go on a climbing/fishing trip. As you may
know, Meghan and I have been living in Kamloops for the last 3.5
months. As soon as climbing season started, we began to explore the
local crags. This involves talking to locals, getting photocopies from
the local stores and exploring logging roads. Our efforts have been
fruitful.

I am also an avid fisherman, so after a long, hot day of pulling rock,
we can head to a lake, jump in, then cast a line. Maybe we can even
catch dinner. I have a good idea of which lakes are good to fish from
talking to locals (Meg's Dad). I also have good maps of the back-roads
in the area which I will post.

2) "Beginner Friendly" Brew Hiking, June 16-17 Sounds like Roland is
headed to the Brew Hut again with "four (4) Young Ladies."  I think
his truck is full, but others are still welcome.

3) "Beginner Friendly" Manning Park Hiking, June 16-17 Various people
are going to do a few day hikes in Manning Park.  Camping and feasting
will be done in a vehicle accessible location.  Lots of car spaces
remain.  Hikes are nice and flat, though might require wading if
flooded.  http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum2/read.php?f=1&i=27819&t=27819
