This is the 16th annual Jared Stanley memorial lecture. Due to restrictions on public gatherings, the event will be held as an online lecture.

The lecture is open to the public, not just club members.

The lecture will be held at this link:

The lecture starts at 7 pm.

The Jared Stanley Memorial Lecture is an event organized by the VOC in memory of UBC student Jared Stanley, who passed away while backcountry skiing near Mt. Seymour in 2005. We feel that the best tribute to Jared is to talk about risk and decision making in the mountains, and hopefully help people to continue to come home safe from the mountains we love. This is a great event that is worthwhile for people of all experience levels.

This year, North Shore SAR member and VOC alumna extraordinaire Julie van de Valk and Elliott Skierszkan are excited to be speaking at the upcoming Jared Stanley Memorial lecture.

Julie will share her Experiences from SAR & Essentials of Trip Safety Gear.

Elliott will speak about Forming Good Trip Planning Habits.

We are also joined by Anna and Bob Parton, from Texas, who will paint an emotional picture of what happens when someone you love doesn't come home from their adventure.

Please join in and support safe outdoor recreation in our community!
