-Kasia Celler and several others successfully completed the Powder Cap Horseshoe Traverse (http://www.ubc-voc.com/2016/04/17/my-first-ski-traverse-or-how-i-learned-to-ski-ballet-and-had-a-rad-weekend-with-five-amigos) , taking several amazing pictures along the way.
-The Womyn's Ski Traverse (http://www.ubc-voc.com/2016/04/15/womyns-ski-traverse-trip-report) seems to have gone wonderfully.

** Upcoming Trips
------------------------------------------------------------
THIS WEEK

Trip Leader Workshop - How do I get involved? · Tuesday, April 19th (http://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1194)
For everybody who ever wanted to lead or organize a trip, as well as everybody able to mentor others in leading or organizing trips. So, basically, everybody in the VOC could probably turn up.

Crepes in the Quad Study Break · Thursday, April 21st
Crepes! Because you all deserve it.

THIS WEEKEND

Mt. Elphinstone daytrip PT/beginner friendly · Saturday, April 23rd (http://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1208)
We can't ski up stuff until the skies clear out a bit, but we can hike up whatever we like. Beginner friendly.

HOT SPRINGS: Formal in the Forest Edition · Sat. Apr. 23rd - Sun. Apr. 24th (http://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1178)
Arguably the best use for any formal wear you may own.

NEXT WEEK
Last day of Exams · Wednesday, April 27th (http://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1138)
People might want to take note of this, for trip planning and stuff. It's still ski season, by the way.

NEXT WEEKEND

The May bikepacking expedition · Sat. Apr. 30th - Fri. May. 6th (http://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1207)
Multi-day mountain biking!


** Message Board Highlights
------------------------------------------------------------
-Alex Westbye is offering some Tele boots (http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?1,117845) , which are possibly a good idea for the VOC itself to pick up, as well as some outdoor clothes (http://www.ubc-voc.com/phorum5/read.php?1,117870) .


** Ms Manners
------------------------------------------------------------
Ms Manners is the VOC's resident expert on mountaineering and outdoors etiquette, and answers questions from VOCers once a week in her advice column, here. Do you have a question for Ms Manners? Email the VOCene editor and it will be forwarded on to Ms Manners, with a reply posted the following week.

This is just a little PSA about the Garibaldi Park 2020 (https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/BC_Minister_of_Environment_Hon_Mary_Polak_Open_the_Garibaldi_Park_Master_Plan_and_Stop_Garibaldi_at_Squamish_Resort/?pv=5) petition on Avaaz: We're at 1800 signatures, and people are still signing it! That's awesome!

The VOC environmental committe is still meeting and I'm sure any help from anyone will always be appreciated. You could contact Devon Campbell or Else Bosman for more information.
