Rescheduled! to Thursday, April 19th! - MEC Club Shopping Night

We were informed late that the MEC shopping night was rescheduled.  Our opologies for the late notice.  The new date is Thursday, April 19th.


If you're like me, you're ready to throw away your old hand held GPS and just rely on your phone. But yesterday, while descending a tight canyon in Red Rocks, I noticed that my location was jumping around up to 50m at a time when I wasn't even moving! Are GPS apps on your phone really the next great thing? RMS member Jim McIvor has done a bunch of useful research - check out the details by clicking here to view.

Are you interested in getting involved with the RMS?  Eager to meet a great group of people and help out with the club?  The Rocky Mountain Section executive is seeking a volunteer to serve as the secretary with the club.  Responsibilities include taking minutes, organizing meetings, coordinating grant applications and having fun!  Meetings are typically monthly except during peak skiing and climbing times when we are out playing in the mountains.  Contact the Past Chair Steve Fedyna at for more information.

Volunteered for the club lately? Led a trip? If so, please join us Sunday April 29th at the HyFive for our annual volunteer appreciation dinner. We couldn’t run without you, so this is a little thanks! Drinks at 6, Dinner at 6:30. Significant others welcome!
