There are so many reasons to come to this, but
chief among them are:
1) Hearthstone Brewery Beer
New beers every year and they are always
amazing. Big thanks to ACC Member and Hearthston
e sales manager, Mike Alderking for
very generously providing beer; truly an amazing
guy and a spectacular brewery! If your are on the
North Shore you should go check them out asap.
2) Awards / Door-Prizes / Swag
Our end of year social is the perfect time say
thank-you and let people know that their
contributions didn't go unnoticed! We have lots of
door prizes and some ACC swag to give away also,
but Anna (our amazing secretary) will compile a
list of people that deserve a special mention. If
you can think of anyone that has made a difference
to you or to anyone else, please drop their name to
Anna before November and they will very likely get
something for their efforts: .
3) Ken Wylie
We probably don't need to tell you who Ken
Wylie is (see: Buried) but what you
know is that he's a long time friend of the Alpine
Club, a super inspiring public speaker, and
generally just an amazing human being. Ken lives in
Mill Bay on Vancouver Island, but will be over to
share some wisdom from his 30 years as a Mountain
Guide and Educator. Having heard Ken talk
previously, we're pretty damn excited to have
deliver this keynote!
4) Episode 109
Words from our team - hear what we've been up
to this year, both the good and the bad. Tales of
strife and accidents, intro courses mishaps and
victories, hi-points, low-points and the overall
story of our 109th year on the West Coast, what a
tale to tell!
The most important part of any AGM: elections!
Volunteering is as much a part of the club as the
mountains themselves, and getting involved on our
executive is absolutely one of the most rewarding
ways to contribute and make a difference. Stay
tuned for more info to come about volunteer
opportunities the fall!
Lastly, we'll have a bunch of food as usual!
Last year (among other things) we had 7 kilos of
buttery popcorn goodness supplied by Anna. It
didn't quite get
finished, but we were pretty damn close. We should
definitely make an attempt at it again this year!
Put it in your calendars for now, and check back
later - there is seriously going to be a lot going
on.. and we would absolutely love for everyone to
be part of it.
Doors open 6:00pm. Friends and family are
most definitely welcome; carpooling is
Hope to see you all there!
