At other times the Clubroom may be OPEN. However, gear rental and return is only possible during the gear hours posted above.

Please arrive with enough time to pick out the gear before gear hours end. Bring cash for refundable gear deposit

If you absolutely cannot make it to any of the posted hours and need to meet the Quartermasters outside of gears hours due to scheduling conflicts, ask nicely and respect their time. Your best bet is to email the quartermasters and be prepared to bring some small bribe (food or drink generally works well). Please remember that all the quartermasters are students volunteering their time, and like most students they are often very busy and cannot always accommodate requests to meet outside of gear hours.

Note that it is not appropriate to leave gear outside or inside the Clubroom when the gear room is locked.

Executive Meetings

The elected Club Executive meets once a week to discuss upcoming events and generally make the Club run as smoothly as possible. Sometimes this involves mostly putting out fires, and sometimes it involves far-ranging philosophical discussion. If you would like to attend an Exec meeting you can do so, but please realize that these people are pretty busy, so don't interrupt. If you have something to present, talk to the president before the meeting so it can be scheduled. If you just want to renew your membership, probably this can be done without interrupting the meeting and you should do it after in most cases. If you want to take out gear, this is not the time to do it.

Each year we discuss when to hold Exec meetings, to maximize the number of Exec who can be there. Everyone is welcome to come though.

The minutes from past exec meetings are available for members to read.

If you're interested in what the exec did the previous years, you could check out the exec reports.

  • wax/sharpen your skis (bring $5 to cover the cost of wax/base cleaner/ptex you use)
  • do other gear maintenance stuff with the equipment we have
  • just hang out with other VOCers!

NOTE: It is at the discretion of the exec member in the clubroom whether these things are possible. We try to be accommodating but we also have to study, and be in the room if you are doing maintenance (and may be leaving soon). It is generally NOT appropriate to ask to borrow or return gear. Please email the quartermasters if you cannot make any gear hours.
