    Come out and join us at the Strathcona Library to meet some of your fellow club members, watch a short slide show of the past year events, participate in the AGM discussion and elections, and to try your luck at winning some awesome door prizes!

    Being on the executive is a great way to give back to the community and gain some experience that will help boost your own resume and self confidence in doing the things that you love to do outside. A full and unified executive board is needed to help continue navigating the challenges ahead and to keep our wonderful club active and thriving. 

    If you are interested in taking on an executive role, and

      • While not required, we do ask that you email the executive@gmmc.ca with your name and the position you are interested in. (this is to help give us awareness interest in the positions)

      • If you have not previously submitted your interest via email, when the position you are interested in is called out for election, you would voice your interest.

      • If there is more than one person interested, you will be invited to say a few words about yourself to help members decide their vote.

    • you will not be able to attend the AGM

      • You MUST email executive@gmmc.ca and provide your name, the position (and/or alternative positions) you are interested in, and optionally a short paragraph about yourself. The executive can put your name forward on your behalf and the vote can be cast to elect you into the position. The executive will notify you after the AGM if you have been voted into the position. 

      • If there is more than one person interested, your submitted paragraph description will be read on your behalf to help members decide their vote.

    The executive has reorganized the chair positions to better reflect the roles and responsibilities of the executive. Please refer to the Executive Roles & Responsibilities page on our website (under Resources / Club Business) outlining the roles and responsibilities of each New Chair Title position.

    ALL positions are currently open for election. Please note the chairs will be filled in the order named below at the AGM.

    On Feb 9th, 2022 the Alberta government moved to step 1 in the phasing out of the associated covid public health measures. Following suit, as of March 7th the club is no longer requiring the previous REP program measures (eg. Proof of Vaccination or 72 hour negative rapid test, etc) for participation on club events.

    Thank you everyone who stuck with us and adhered to the restrictions so we were able to continue operating and running safe events.

    Please join us for the Annual HWY Cleanup Fundraiser on May 7th! Last year this event was a huge success, so we've decided to do it again. It is a great event to see some familiar faces, meet new people and visit while supporting the club we love.

    For every 1 km of highway cleaned of garbage, the GMMC receives $100! 

    Friends and family members are welcome to join (they don't have to be members). 

    You and your guests MUST sign up for this event. To do so, please register for the event on the calendar.

    Thank you in advance!

    More exciting news for the club!

    MEC has agreed to support the GMMC and provide us with percentage back on all purchases made when using the link bellow.

    I know I'm not the only gear addict that makes weekly purchases so I'm sure there are others shopping for a pretty bouquet of cams, or some slick new winter gear.


    Click this link, snag the stuff you were going to buy anyway, and help us out

    Congratulations to Lynn Duong, volunteer of the month. Enough can’t be said how wonderful the turkey was prepared by Lynn at our feast for Turkey Trek 2021 . Thank you for all the extra attention to make the main course such a success! It was thoroughly enjoyed by all members who participated in such a great event.
