Well folks, here we are. We've had a glorious school year filled with activities and bonding in the great Canadian outdoors. Come on out for one last pub night to hang out with all of the awesome people that you've met so far, it's sure to be a blasty blast.
This pub night should be good'er, so it's going to be held at Tavern on Whyte (10507-82 Ave) at 8:00PM on Friday, April 11th. We will all hang out outside on their back patio, so even though there's a fireplace and heaters, layer up!
Can't wait to see all of your pretty faces.

Hi Lovely Folks!

The California New Year's trip is coming up soon!

* New Years Eve on the beach
* Two days of surfing in the Pacific
* Hiking in the beautiful Anza Borrego desert
options to backpacking trip are open
* Camping in the most sweetest areas

Now, I know this is what you're going to ask:
* AWESOME! What does it cost?
$575, this includes bus transportation, camping and all your camping fuel. You'd just have to budged for food (and if interested, surfing lessons and rentals are optional for $100)

* Did you just say bus transportation? To California!?!?
Yes, and according to some this is even the best part of the trip. You'll get a good 36 hours to socialize with your newest friends.
And we'll stop in Las Vegas for some interesting stretching..

* I don't have all/any camping gear, what do I do?
No problem, as a member, you get free rentals. Just drop by our office and pick up your sleeping bag, mat, tent and cookware, and you're set!

* Don't you know it's Christmas?
We are leaving Edmonton on Boxing Day (Dec26) 7pm. So don't worry; you won't miss your Christmas dinners / presents. We'll be back the evening before school starts again (Jan05)

* Sweet! I don't want to miss this! / I want to know more!
Welcome on board! Send an email to

Running Group Update

Monday October 28th 2013, 02:43 PM

Hi Everyone,

A quick update on the running group. We're going to move the runs back to Thursday (October 31st) but will still meet at 6:00pm. We will likely run on lit trails for the majority of the time, but please bring a headlamp as it will still be dark. As usual we will have a couple of distance options.

Also, if anyone is interested, there is a group of us running stairs on Tuesday (October 29th) at 6:00pm. We'll meet at the same place as usual (Van Vliet entrance).
