3) Annual Veenstra Moderate Friendly Summer Traverse - Valentine Gates  Sat. Jul. 9th - Sun. Jul. 10th\

Christian Veenstra has developed a bit of a reputation, among other awesome things, for his summer "moderate-friendly" trips.  Rest assured that this will be a gong show in all of the right ways.  A great trip to broaden your backcountry horizons with a big, competent group.

II. This week in the VOC

 1) Past trips and events

- Despite a rainy start, Kathrin L's bike touring trip to Salt Spring island was a big success.  TR here: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,74459
- A crew caught both the sunrise and the sunset on the longest day of the year while skiing on the North Shore. Rich S. wore a costume.  TR here: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,74145
- Ben SP's trip to scope out the Harrison Hut access happened, and is reported to have involved creek crossings and sidehilling on steep hardened mud.  We'll be sure to hear more about their findings up there.

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

Ms. Manner's is swamped this week, and has no critical thinking ability left to do justice to your deep questions.

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.
