I. Upcoming Events and Trips


1) Lead Ladder Summer 2012   Wed. June. 13th

As per recent discussions on the message board, the inaugural VOC Lead
Ladder, will kick-off on Wed 13 Jun with the first of 4 x 2 hour evening
session. This will culminate with a weekend in Squamish on 14-15 Jul.

The Lead Ladder is not a formal qualification, merely an organised means
of passing on skills. It is aimed at teaching people to lead (mainly)
single pitch routes well within their comfort zone of at least 5.6 and up.
 Whilst you will learn skills required to lead climb, it won't necessarily
turn you into a 'climber', this is for you to evolve into afterwards.

3) 21 Mile Creek User Survey

From Scott N: "The 21 Mile Creek drainage is a non-motorized zone and
snowmobiling is prohibited. The Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC is
conducting a user survey to measure the frequency of illegal snowmobile
use in 21 Mile Creek. The results from the survey will guide compliance
and enforcement actions by government conservation officers." Please take
a brief moment to complete the survey, if you've been on a trip to 21 Mile
Creek.

4) Mammut Pulse 3.2 Firmware Update - Available Now from the VOC

From the message board post: "The VOC can now offer firmware updates to
Mammut Pulse beacons. This is handy because firmware version 3.2 was
recently released. Why is the VOC offering this service? Because no one
else in Vancouver does and because the same tool that lets us do this also
lets us record the health of our new rental beacons. The cost for getting
the upgrade through the club is $10 for members and $15 for non-members."
