Next meeting: Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - includes presentation of the 2014-2015 budget, and a guest speaker (yet to be announced!).
On Tuesday evenings (usually after 6 p.m.) there is an informal gathering of climbers at Vertically Inclined Rock Gym (VIRG) for socializing and indoor climbing. If a member is planning on attending for the first time, they should contact the Climbing Chair to make arrangements to be "recognized" as there is no way to know the GMMC group other than to have us on the lookout for the new climber. Climbers of all abilities are welcome! There is a fee for climbing and gear can be rented as well. If someone would like to come and see what it is all about and just hang out, there is no charge. VIRG's address is 8523 Argyll Road in Edmonton.
