John Baldwin

The legendary John Baldwin will be coming to talk with us about the Lillooet Ice Field. 31 years ago, John did one of his first traverses on the ice field with a bunch of other VOCers. Last year, he repeated it, marking the 30th anniversary of that first trip. Some of his recent maps and guidebooks will also be available for sale.


Potluck dinner
All members should bring a dish (main course or dessert). Sign up below and indicate what you're bringing so we don't end up with 17 of the same thing. If, as sometimes happens, the desserts signup starts getting way longer than the main courses, then we'll put some sort of cap on the desserts signup to balance things out.

Please bring your own everything - That means plate, knife, fork, drinking vessel - you know, everything you'll need to eat and drink. Disposable cutlery will not be available.
