2) Brew Work Hike  Sat. Aug. 6th - Sun. Aug. 7th

This will be round two of Summer 2011 Brew Flash-A-Thon.  We need to finish getting new flashing installed on the Brew Hut, which is a beautiful place to visit anyways! Partaking in the flashing is strictly optional.

4) Sphinx (Garibaldi Lake) workhike  Sat. Aug. 13th - Sun. Aug. 14th
It's time to do some work up at the Burton hut in beautiful Sphinx Bay of Garibaldi Lake.  This trip will involve a fun route in (unless your idea of fun is the 6km flat across the lake in the winter)!

II. Trip Ideas and Partners Sought

Nothing this week!

III. This week in the VOC

 1) Past trips and events

- In a failed bid to re-assert our club's sovereignty over Mt. Veeocee, a crew of hardened VOC'ers discovered that some rivers just don't want to be crossed http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,73624
- A VOC trip went to Skaha for climbing, but more importantly for some fruit-picking along the way.  Photos here: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,74837
- Knut K. and Erica L. ran the Juan de Fuca trail in a day! http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?1,75522
-Marcin and Todd (both of last initial M) did some alpine climbing in the Bugaboos, Kananskis, and the Valhallas. Looks like they had a stubble growing competition in the tent too. http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,75529
-Maxime G. took a hike up Coliseum Mt. http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,75518

 2) Call for Instructors- 2011 Glacier School- Sept 17-18

If you aren't reading this from the bottom of a crevasse, it's probably because you learned glacier safety so well at VOC Glacier School. Wouldn't it be great to give back?  Now is your chance!  Our Trips Coordinator Chris has put out a call for instructors: http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?3,75480

V. Ms. Manners

Sorry, Ms. Manners has to leave like right now for a four day trip, during which she will ponder all of your questions.
