I. Trip Reports

1) Phelix Trail Workhike
A huge party of VOCers completed the new trail to the Brian Waddington
Hut last weekend!  A huge meal of curry was prepared in the hut as the
workers shovelled snow off the route so that the trail could be
completed.  Thanks to everyone who helped out!

2) Skaha
A VOC group braved the questionable weather forecast and headed to
Penticton for some climbing in the Skaha bluffs.  The weather turned
out to be not so bad and people had a good time.  The campground
turned out to be free (thanks Lost Moose!) and some money was raised
for the Skaha access campaign.

3) Big Trees Hike
Vince led some people up the Lynn River to check out some giant
trees.  Despite some soggy conditions participants seemed glad to get
out of the city without having to go far at all!

4) Needle Peak
The VOC's 16th (?) annual trip to Needle Peak worked out again this
year.  15 people headed up into the snow after a little difficulty
finding the trailhead.  Some people went further than others, but
everyone had fun playing in the snow and some even took a little
shower in a waterfall on the way down.

II. Upcoming Events and Trips   

1) Beginner Friendly Seymour Hike, Saturday October 27
Roland is leading an easy hike to Mount Seymour this Saturday to see
if his feet hurt a bit less than they used to.  The plan is to be back
in time for some Saturday afternoon studying.  See the message board
for organization.

2) Other weekend plans?

weekend, keep checking the board for updates.  Here's a climbing
