Friday, 6/12/2015, Bivouac practice-beginner level practice session for Boulder CMC Hiking & Survival, and Back packing Students

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.

Wednesday, 6/17/2015, Wednesday Evening Endeavors (WEE) Social Hike

This is not your typical WEE hike! With all the June daylight we'll go a little further than usual with more elevation gain. Royal Arch, Green Mountain, or a loop up the 1st/2nd Flatiron Trail to Sunset Rock then down Saddle Rock trail are among the possibilities. No need to call or register, just show before 6:00 p.m. at the Boulder Group Clubroom (behind Neptune Mountaineering and above Elevations Credit Union).  Be prepared for the weather, bring a snack to share if you like,  and be sure to bring a headlamp/flashlight as this hike will likely go past dusk.  Optional after hike food and/or drink at a restaurant near the clubroom.
