Description:

In January 2005, Jared Stanley, a UBC student, passed away while back country skiing on Mount Seymour. Every year, the VOC hosts a memorial lecture in his name, this year's will the 7th installment.

Jared's family, Anna and Bob Parton, fly out every year to attend the lecture and speak a little bit about Jared. The Partons are great speakers and great people.

The Partons memories of Jared will be followed by a talk given by one of Canada West Mountain School's guides who will be addressing their views on safety in the mountains from the perspective of someone who is responsible for managing group safety, a highly relevant subject for the VOC.

Its an interesting, and emotional evening and very much worth attending for people of all experience levels.
