To our ACC club members, friends, family and guests,

It's time for our spring social, and a collective visit to Mahony & Sons (at stamps landing).

We have a large area reserved for just us, our own manned bar, and some amazing options for extremely delicious food and drinks. You’ll also be in excellent company.

Our presenters this month are Jill, Soleil & Marlaina. They are three women who met through the ACC and BCMC and have been climbing together ever since. Earlier this year, they went to Mendoza, Argentina to climb the highest peak outside of Asia. Their goal was to complete an all women’s, self-propelled ascent of Aconcagua, but what followed was so much more. Through high winds, snow, altitude, hunger and heavy packs they trudged on when many other teams turned back, becoming “famous” as the “Three Canadian Chicas” on their side of the mountain. Their story promises insight into what it takes to prepare for an expedition like this, and a lot of laughs!

Their trip was generously supported by a grant from the ACC Jen Higgins Fund for Young Women.

Note: It's no secret that we've been wanting to host our socials at a venue like this more often, but until now, we haven't found anywhere that can accommodate us. We have our fingers crossed that you love Mahony's, but we need the numbers to make it work well. So with summer knocking on our door, take this as the perfect opportunity to meet people, make plans for the year and support the club by helping us explore a new and exciting venue!

"Doors" start at 6:30pm, but our announcements / presentations / festivities should start around 7:30pm. You are welcome to go earlier if you like also, they will not turn you away.

If you have any ideas / questions / concerns / announcements or similar for this evening, please contact Raz Peel at .

Hope to see you there! -Daphne, Anna, Jill & Raz
