Halloween Party Video was sweet! It will be going on Youtube and the link will be posted so all can see!

 

Trip Reports

 

Emma and friends skiied to the top of Jay Peak with skins on their skis and then had a good ride down. The people who worked there didn’t seem to mind them being there. Cool!

 

Leith went biking on Saturday to this very long narrow island that is basically just a bike path. He tried to go back to Montreal through Nun’s Island and got stuck!

 

Skyler and friends insulated the windows at the house and half fixed the water heater. He turned it on and then it quasi-repaired itself! Woohoo!

 

Icebreakers! Sarah propelled a canoe with an ice axe and manly screams. A lot of ice was broken by canoes. No one died and there are tons of pictures on the facebook group, check it out!

 

 

Trip Announcements

 

Hossein is going to Mount Gosford this weekend to camp and hike. It’s going to be rather chilly. It was freezing cold in late May last time he went. December? Balmy. Have fun, Hossein. Trip Cost: $30. Trip Date: November 30th-December 1st. hiking@mcgilloutdoorsclub.ca

 

Max’s Icebreakers No. 2 – bring your ice axes! Hopefully the trips works out and it does not become a game of sliding canoes on ice…

 

Sarah is planning on hitchhiking to Goose Bay and skiing into the Mealy Mountains after school ends. An all-round lack of experience means fun times….!

 

Mark wants to go ski touring in the Adirondacks this weekend and is looking for friends. He will decide the exact location by Friday.

 

Colin has an open invitation for all! He will be in Fernie for 3 weeks over Christmas so you should go skiing with him if you’re in the area.

 

There will be a group of students heading up to the house over exams. Leaving around 9-14 of December. Will be going cross country skiing! alice.norris@mail.mcgill.ca

 

Sarah and her brother are going to New Hampshire this weekend if anyone wants a ride! Trails@mcgilloutdoorsclub.ca
