AGM & Community Social

November 28, 2016, 6:30pm - November 29, 2016, 1:59am

November means our AGM & Community social is here again - the single biggest and more important social event we host each year, and certainly one of our favorites! Here's the last minute FB event to let you know, because many of our friends haven't gotten the memo yet. If you're not sure who or what the ACC is about, this is hands-down the single best way to find out. That said, regardless of whether your a member or not: If your in the Vancouver or Sea to Sky Corridor area and reading this, you are likely part of the mountain community too, and we would love to see you there. Hearthstone Brewery are bringing beer, the club will provide snacks, there are prizes to be had, and you get to hear about some of the initiatives taking place to make the areas we live in, one of the best places in the world to be. It costs exactly $0 to come, and it's an open invitation to you and your friends that climb, hike, ski, run etc... Kevin McLane will be sharing some snippets from a future publication. Mac Henry John Harvey will be talking about the future of camping Squamish's Mamquam River. Thomas Lauer will be talking about a brand new youth club in Vancouver, and Raz Peel will talk about the ACC leadership team and plans for 2017. If your not yet convinced you should come: Valerie Williams will be helping you make a mountain themed dessert at the Sundae bar, and Rob Asbeek Brusse will be cooking up some on the spot popcorn for you to munch on while watching short clips from the Bamff World tour. (The full show is Dec 2-3!) Seriously, there is a lot going on.. and we'd love to see you there.
