This year our end of season June Social will include Volunteer Appreciation Awards. Come out and support our volunteers and say thanks. In addition to the ever popular end of season Potluck, Lynn Erickson will be making a short presentation on Lake O'Hara as a warm-up for her camp there in July.

Feature presentation by Tony Hoare. The 2008 Patagonia Expedition Race was comprised of a dozen teams from countries as diverse as Turkey, France, and Brazil. It is a 10-day event with a race course of approximately 600 km. The four member, mixed gender teams hike, bike, kayak and climb their way through very remote areas of Patagonia some of which have no documented prior traverses before the race. Tony was part of a team of 6 international adventure sports photographers brought down to cover the race. Via trucks, planes, sailing boats and navy gunboats they explored some of the most remote regions of Patagonia to cover the racers. For more information check out the Pa tagonia Expedition Race website.
