MOC General Meeting

November 20th, 2013

 

Trip Reports

Keep your eyes out for albino squirrels… There have been numerous sightings. Watch out!

Elodie went bouldering at Tour de Bloc at Allez Up this weekend!

Liz went hiking at Far Hills in Val David.

Only one person came to the poker run this past weekend… SO there will be a mandatory one in January! Stay tuned!

Sarah and team made some sweet bridges on the MOC trails. They were very badass and split wood with mallets and wedges. Some bridges are not quite finished and there is still a lot of water kicking around, so be careful! The trail workers also climbed Mt. Shaw at night to see the meteor shower

Clio and AJ passed Wilderness First Aid certification along with 11 other people. They had a blast with fake blood, lacerations, lying in mud and screaming in pain in the middle of McGill campus.
