Friday, 7/24/2015, Bivouac practice-beginner level practice session for Boulder CMC Hiking & Survival, and Back packing Students date changed to July

At the end of the hiking and survival class, a number of people requested a practice trip to put into use the survival skills they learned.  So this trip will be a planned "bivouac" light.  It will be overnight where people are invited to try out their various shelters and warmth techniques.  We will go a little ways from the cars but close enought that if the emergency shelters really don't pass the grade, people can return to the car and change gear or head back to town to try again another day.  You are encouraged to bring extra "survival gear" and even a sleeping bag and ground pad as a back up.  This will be "survival" by CMC conservation-minded standards, not the over-the-top destructive TV 'survival' shows standards.  The focus is on using the gear you bring and testing out what works.  Students from last year and this year have priority sign up until June 1st, then remaining spots are open to any CMC member who has had the training.  We'll head in Friday evening and should have about an hour at our "emergency" overnight bivy spot to set up shelters.  At first light in the morning we can either head out or people want, we can do a B or C hike before heading out.

Sunday, 8/9/2015, advance technical canyoneering-international canyon festival Flowing water canyons Ouray Colorado

 The international canyon festival will be held in our back yard this year, in spectacular Ouray Colorado.  The festival runs from August 9th through August 15th with daily canyon trips,  classes,  music, dinners, and a raffle.  This will coincide with the 6th annual Ouray Canyon festival.  Located all around Ouray are beautiful class C (flowing water/waterfall) canyons.  These canyons require solid canyoneering skills,  totally bomber  rappel skills, and a full length wet suit and rappelling gear.  There will be different canyon trips each day available to sign up the night before.  The trip leader will lead a CMC only trip on one day, the rest of the days will be mixed with the festival participants on be non-cmc specific trips.    There will be a planning meeting about 1 week before the trip.  Please sign up before July 31st, preferably by mid July.  If there is enough interest, I'll offer a canyon refresher/practice session before the trip.
