Regular Events

Monthly section meeting - NEW LOCATION

The monthly section meeting is held on the second Wednesday of every month at the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Centre. The exceptions are July when we are too busy in the mountains to have a meeting and in August when we meet at Edworthy Park to have a barbecue instead! After a short business meeting starting at 7:30 pm, members socialize over a beer (or two) or a glass of wine (or two) until the second half of the meeting when a slide show is presented.

Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association - 1320 - 5th Avenue N.W.

Located on 5th Avenue at the corner of 14 Street NW.

These slide shows are presented by members or local personalities and run the gamut from expedition climbing, such as Andy Evan's ascent of the N. Ridge of Mt. Everest, to the Section climbing and ski committee's presentations of the 'Best of the Year'.

The annual general meeting of the section is held during the November monthly meeting each year.

Annual photography competition

You don't want to miss this one! Normally every April, the section holds its annual photography competition, challenging all section members to put their best foot forward. The results are always spectacular, in categories which include Winter Mountaineering, Flora and Fauna, Skiing, and Rock Climbing. At the same meeting, the best cooks (or those most willing to try) in the section provide for The Trail Snack Contest, a tired mountaineer's dream of treats to satisfy the tummy in the mountains.

Climbing at a Gym or at Local Crag

During the winter, the climbing wall at the Calgary Climbing Center is available to section members on Wednesday evenings at a discounted rate when you present your membership card. The same is true at the Crux on Monday nights. This becomes a weekly focal point for some section members who can't keep from climbing mid-week. Once the snow disappears, we move outside to local crags on Wednesday evenings. Check the Event Schedule for more details.

Volunteers' Barbeque

Held each fall to honour those who have volunteered their time and energy to section activities during the preceding year, it's a highpoint on the social calendar for the section. Of course, free beer and food is always sure to be a hit around a bunch of climbers and skiers.

Annual Rock and Ice Reviews

Hosted by the Climbing Committee, these weekend gatherings are intended to provide an early-season opportunity for section members to get out and warm up on either rock (in the spring) or ice (in the early winter). Normally held over a weekend, the Saturday evening party provides much needed refreshments and social interaction between the big fun of Saturday's climbs on easier terrain and the big fears of Sunday's climbs on more varied and challenging terrain, for those who are interested.
