You always wanted to see a helicopter really close? Maybe touch it? See it like 10 times landing and taking off again, carrying massive chunks of wood? You wanted to watch this helicopter delivering these logs to one of the greatest huts in BC?
You always wanted to give back to some fraction of mankind, maybe by making sure that some people are warm, dry, mold free and happy - for a change?

Yes? You might wonder how all this might be achieved on a single weekend?

So, here is the plan:
You will be driving with other awesome VOCers either on Saturday morning or on Friday evening to the road leading to our Brew hut.
There you will either hike to the hut or you would stay at a massive pile of wood near the road.
If you stay at the road than you would help loading wood on helicopter straps and attaching these to the helicopter.
If you went to the hut then you would help removing the wood from the helicopter straps.
All this should only take a few hours, then we either go back to Vancouver or do something nice in the area.
You hate doing trips in poor weather? No worries if the weather doesn't cooperate this will happen on Sunday, or on the following weekend..

The pictures shown above may be slightly exaggerated and may not be representative of this trip.
Also there is always the possibility that Bruce Willis might not actually be flying the helicopter.
