1. We have changed our membership system and updated our website to $10/month to reflect our focus, purpose and service. Our new website plan has to delay coz Leo is too busy until further notice. People are already signing up for the new memberships.
2017 Focus will be project based to support Access Societies and climbers in 4 aspects. 
– Friendships building (I’m planning to change monthly Temple into monthly Welcome Climbers Party; pending a capable Team Lead)
– Best Climbers’ Practice & Stewardship (Supporting Access Societies & I’m conceptualising a Canada-wide campaign Coalition to Climb Canada)

– Increase Safety in climbing (through Brent Nixon’s Vancouver Mountain Guides courses & seminars- see below)

– Charity through climbing (through Climb and Conquer)
If you plan to be part of Team VRCG 2017, please go ahead to https://vrcg.ca/membership

2. Our AGM will be June 5. Please message me to RSVP. This year we create a super fun event right after: https://www.facebook.com/events/1195165623926249/

Are you an indoor climber looking to start outdoor climbing in 2017 summer, don’t know where to start and have lots of questions?

🙂 Let us help you.

We have prepared a panel of experienced climbers who start from scratch just like you, through a variety of methods, and eventually rampage rock, snow, ice and the alpine like you see on magzine cover.

In this wonderful evening, you will be able to ask them questions, get their contacts for future questions and meet other like-minded climbers to meet more climbing partners for summer 2017!
