In January 2005, Jared Stanley, a UBC student, passed away while back country skiing on Mount Seymour. Every year, the VOC hosts a memorial lecture in his name, this year's will the 8th instalment. While Jared wasn't an ACCer or VOCer, he's the sort of guy that probably would have ended up knocking on the VOC's or ACC's door at some point, so the VOC sort of adopted him and the lecture. Jared's family, Anna and Bob Parton, fly out every year to attend the lecture and speak a little bit about Jared. The Partons are great speakers and great people. Much like the VOC sort of adopted Jared, the Partons sort of adopted the VOC. The Partons memories of Jared will be followed by a talk given by one of Canadian Avalanche Centre's forecasters. We constantly look at the CAC's mountain forecasts in order to determine the risk of avalanches in the backcountry. This should be an interesting lecture on the insights of predicting avalanches and overall safety. Its an interesting, and emotional evening and very much worth attending for people of all experience levels.
