I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Remember to Renew Your Memberships

October 1st is the deadline to renew your memberships, so if you don't want to lose access to the message board, make sure to swing by the club room ASAP!

Membership Options:
1 - Student Members - Must be members of the AMS - A student membership gets you everything (journal, gear), plus you can vote and you can be on exec. $35

2 - Associate Members - Open to anybody (Faculty, Staff, Spouses, or anybody we think is a benefit to the club) - Associate members get everything, like student members except for the ability to vote or be on the exec. $52.50

3 - Alumni Members - for people who were previously student members but are no longer eligible, or had some combination of memberships for at least four years - doesn't get anything which costs money (no journal, no gear). People applying for alumni membership for the first time will need to swing by the club office, those renewing can probably finagle something by email with someone on the exec. Free


2) Brew Hut - September 12th to 13th

The plan is to drive up Saturday, hike in, maybe cut a little firewood from the construction debris up there, stay overnight, and hike out Sunday. This is a good trip for you if
-- You like blueberries, because there should be lots on the way in.
-- You have never been to a VOC Hut and want to see what one looks like.
-- You are going crazy trapped in the city.
-- You want to test your rain gear, because it might rain.

3) HSCT - SP - September 12th to 13th

What can that mysterious trip name possibly mean? It means the Howe Sound Crest Trail - Self Propelled. The idea is to hike the HSCT entirely self-propelled, approaching it by bicycle. Groups will start from either end of the trail and do a bike lock key swap mid way.

4) Glacier School - September 19th and 20th

It is time to get excited about this years glacier school. Glacier school is a classic VOC instructional trip, where you can expect to learn how to safely travel on glaciers and what to do when things go wrong. Everyone who has previous camping and backpacking experience can join. The signup is currently full, but you can always try your luck on the wait list.
