To complement the topic of safety after the Jared Stanley Lecture, Jeff Taylor and i will be running a beacon search practice right afterwards. We highly encourage you to sign up for and attend the lecture as well.
One problem with using beacons is that your rescue competency affects not just yourself but the safety of everyone else on your trip. Beacons are quite simple to use but it's common practice for everyone to practice regularly, especially before your first winter trip. If you haven't done this before, you'll quickly realize how a reletavely simple search can become a big gong-show without practice.
Come out to Mcinnes Field (By the bus loop) after the lecture (whenever it's finished) and bring your transceiver if you have one. We'll also bring what we have from the clubroom. Come learn how to use these magical devices if you're a beginner or to share your knowledge and practice if you're experienced.
