Description:
In January 2005, Jared Stanley, a UBC student, passed away while back country skiing on Mount Seymour. An annual memorial lecture was held for the first couple of years after Jared's death, but as many of Jared's friends and colleagues left UBC, running the event became more difficult. The VOC decided to adopt the lecture series and every year since, the VOC has hosted the Jared Stanley Memorial Lecture: this year's will be the 12th installment. While Jared wasn't a VOCer, he's the sort of guy that probably would have ended up knocking on the VOC's door at some point, so we sort of adopted him and the lecture.

Jared's family, Anna and Bob Parton, fly out from Texas every year to attend the lecture and speak a little bit about Jared. The Parton's are great speakers and great people. In previous years, after learning about SPOT devices from our guest speaker, a Search and Rescue team member, they promptly went out and bought the club a three pack of the devices because they felt that if such a device had existed back in 2005, then maybe Jared would still be with us. Much like the VOC sort of adopted Jared, the Partons sort of adopted the VOC.
The Parton's memories of Jared will be followed by a talk given by Alec Ritchie, a member of the North Shore Search and Rescue Group. For further background on the North Shore SAR group, please visit this link: http://www.northshorerescue.com/.
This is an interesting, emotional, and insightful event for members of all experience levels; we encourage everyone to come out and bring your friends! The more the merrier!
This event is open to the public, not just club members.
