I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) VOC Banquet, April 2nd
Mark your calendars for the 2009 VOC end of the year Banquet!
This year's event will be happening Thursday April 2nd at St. James Community Centre.

Please arrive promptly at 6:00pm for free admittance! We need you there to get important input on how the club is doing. Those arriving after 6:30 will be required to pay two dollars to get in.

Our AGM and elections will be followed by a dinner prepared for you by this years exec! Jason will present a fantastic slideshow "Alpine Hooliganisms" regarding his climbing adventures from Western Canada to Patagonia. Following the slideshow will be awards and dancing!

Please bring your own plate and cutlery + a dessert to share.

Dress is semi-formal.

2) Son of Rock, April 2nd
As tradition dictates, we'll be starting the rock climbing season with an intro day in Squamish where we all learn some useful skills. There are instructors signed up to teach Intro to Rock, Top Roping, Intro to lead, and Multipitch climbing and rescue. A great opportunity to learn or refresh skills before heading out on the Vantage Rock climbing trip the weekend after.

3) Touring daytrip, April 4 or 5
Spots for one or two people. Should be a good downhill skier.

4) Backcountry Ski/Snowboard Trip, April 10-13
Location still undecided. Plan ahead for Easter Weekend.

II. Call for Executives

Who runs this club anyways? The VOC executive, more-or-less - and that could be you. Believe it or not, most of the exec are not chest-beating hardmen - in fact, mostly we're just a bunch of people who had a good time in the club last year and want to give something back. You don't need to be an expert at anything, other than donating your time and effort - these are mostly organizational roles (although experience, of course, helps).
Check out the link to see what positions you might be interested in.

III. VOC Journal
The Varsity Outdoor Club Journal, Vol. 51, may be picked up at the Banquet (tomorrow!), or in the club room. They are free to all fee-paying members, or may be purchased for $20 each. If you cannot pick up your journal in person, it can be shipped to you for an additional shipping charge. Contact the Journal Editor or Archivist for more information.

IV. MEC Elections
MEC is having an election to fill the Board of Directors. If you are a member (which undoubtedly most of you are) then you are capable of voting. Elections end on April 9th.
