I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Longhike 2009 - October 10-11

Longhike is the club's popular, annual rock climbing & party extravaganza. This event is now sold out!

The MANDATORY dry school is at 6:30pm tomorrow, Wednesday October 7th in WOOD 1. If you are coming on Longhike, you must be there!

2) Beginner Friendly Garibaldi Lake Trip

This is a beginner friendly trip, overnight backpacking into Garibaldi Park. The hike into Garibaldi Lake from the trailhead is approximately 9 km with a fair bit of elevation gain, where we will set up camp. The hike from Garibaldi Lake to Panorama Ridge is another 7.5 km one way.

It will be a relatively easy overnight trip, but we will be out of cell service and easy access to Tim Hortons. If you're new to backpacking, this trip will be a good ease into it, and if you're just new to Vancouver area, you can come and see what everyone keeps talking about when they say it's the most beautiful area in the world.

3) Halloween Skaha Climbing Trip

It's that time of year again! If you're not quite ready for the Vancouver drizzle, then run away to Skaha for a weekend of (hopefully) sunny climbing. Skaha is a rock climbing area located near Penticton, BC, in the Okanagan Valley, where the VOC traditionally organises a trip around Halloween.

4) Mid-Week Slackers

Some people who are lucky enough to have no weekday commitments are looking to get outside and make the most of the nice weather. If this sounds appealing to you, check the message board for details on the latest plans.

5) Wednesday Night Slide Shows

There will be no slide show this week because of the Longhike dry school.


II. Miscellaneous

1) Workhike Opportunity - Poster Hanging

Looking for a workhike so that you're able to borrow gear from the club? Look no further! We need people to help hang up some posters around campus to advertise the VOC.
