Other ideas

  1. Hut renos, noting that Ryan is gone June and July, and our voluntary Grizzly closure is Aug 15 - Oct 15, if somebody is painting the exterior of Phelix, it probably isn't Ryan (Caitlin will do it, likely early August). Many people needed to haul paint. Replacing the windows at Brew could possibly be done in May, and Ryan is the expert, but we need time to see if the FMCBC is giving us grant money for this. Trip to Sphinx to put something on the bottom of the door. (Steph would be pretty keen to go to Sphinx in the summer)
  2. Harrison trail, as soon as the snow is gone.
  3. Caitlin wants to cross the neve in the summer. or attempt to
  4. Veenstra Summer Traverse
  5. Sea Kayaking
  6. River Kayaking
  7. Juan de Fuca trail
  8. Lions
  9. Black Tusk trip
  10. Garibaldi lake
  11. Cheakamus Garibaldi (Caitlin)
  12. Matier - as some intro to mountaineering?
  13. Baker
  14. Rainier?
  15. Something in the Tantalus area?
  16. Roland wants to get to the top of Mt Rohr, finally.
  17. Roland will try and do beginner-friendly hikes but doesn't want to schedule now and bail later.
  18. Small scale intro to technical alpine climbing? (would be interested in participating - Lachlan)

Other Items to Discuss

  5. Club room organization
