SAVE THE DATE for our big event of the year!

There are so many reasons to come to this, but chief among them are:

Our long time Social Host and community partner Mahoney and Sons Stamps Landing will be donating the beer again. Beer will be a toonie. Money to go into the Social fund to buy dinner for presenters at our Socials. Step up and be a presenter.

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. If you can think of anyone that has made a difference to you or to anyone else, please drop their name to before November so they may be recognized. :
We also have some amazing door prizes donated by our community partners, Fjallraven, Nomad Nutrition, Intuition boot liners, Aileen Stalker - Snowshoe in Southwestern BC Book, Avalanche Canada, NSR and AdventureSmart BC

3) Howie Rode
"Howie Rode - ACC member for 72 years has turned 100 !! Come out to enjoy some cake and celebrate with Howie and hear about our long time member"

4) Ian Welsted

Ian is best known in climbing circles as one of only two Canadians to be awarded the Piolets D'or, for his first ascent of K6 West (7000m) in Pakistan. Born and raised in Brandon Manitoba Ian moved to Chamonix France at the age of 17. From this year in the mountains he returned to Canada to attend Ottawa University and McGill University where he studied economics and philosophy.

5) Year End Reports - 111 th year ACC on the West Coast
- Read what we've been up to this 111th year on the West Coast, lots to tell!

6) Bylaws Vote
With the very hard work of the executive and key members in the club such as Manrico Scremin and Willa Harasym we have drafted a set of Bylaws to meet the needs of our growing section that reflect the emerging culture within the club that has fostered the amazing community we have built in the south coast. These by-law changes will require a vote by all ACC Members present at the AGM in order to bring them into effect. You can read the proposed bylaw changes at the following link proposed-bylaws-2019-10-07/

7) Popcorn
Last year (among other things) we had 7 kilos of buttery popcorn goodness. It didn't quite get finished, but we were pretty close. We should definitely make an attempt at it again this year!

Put it in your calendars for now, and check back later - we would absolutely love for everyone to be part of it.

Doors open 6:00pm. Friends and family are most definitely welcome; carpooling is definitely encouraged!

Hope to see you all there!
