II. This week in the VOC

 1) Past trips and events

- A group headed up to the Phelix hut and enjoyed some skiing, singing, and chocolate fondue!  Read about it here: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum2/read.php?f=3&i=19297&t=19297
- A group made an attempt on Mt. Baker, but turned back due to bad weather and snow conditions. TR here: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum2/read.php?f=3&i=19098&t=19098
- Some VOC'ers headed down to the Wenatchee River whitewater kayaking festival, apparently involving some driving with only the e-brake!
- Laura C. enjoyed some nice turns up at Seymour; still plenty of snow up there apparently!  Another group went to Cypress, including Dan. E for his first time back on skis in 6 years.  Congrats Dan!

 2) From the exec's desk

Our trusty Archivist Gili is looking for a copy of VOCJ47, either to keep for the club or to scan for the website.  If you have a copy that you'd be willing to lend or donate to the club, fire him or the VOCene editor an email!

III. Miscellaneous

 1) 2010 journals available for pickup

If you haven't grabbed your VOC Journal yet, you are really missing out! This year's journal is packed with epicness, hilarity, and thought-provoking discussion about the outdoors, the VOC, and everything in between.  The cost of the Journal is included in your membership fee, so you owe nothing for your first copy. If you'd like more than one, extra copies are available for $20.

 2) Rewards and incentives for trip organizers

Woohoo, prodeals for VOC Trip organizers! In return for leading trips, you now get not only immense satisfaction, but cheap gear too!!

IV. Ms. Manners

...has asked for the week off!

Do you have a question for Ms. Manners? If so, email it to to your friendly neighbourhood VOCene editor and he'll forward it to Ms. Manners for review. Remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question, so ask away.
