Open Houses for New and Prospective Members

- hosted by E.B. 'Bernel' Sawyer
pen Houses for new and prospective Boulder Group members are held in the clubroom. Slides are shown, club activities are explained, and new and old members have an opportunity to get acquainted with the club and each other. The Open Houses take place on the 3rd Wednesday of odd numbered months. Watch the Compass and GPS e-newsletters, and this web site, Events, for the actual dates.

Activity Schedules

As soon as you have joined the Club, you will receive the Activity Schedule. This quarterly publication lists all the hikes, climbs, bicycle trips, ski tours, and other trips sponsored by the various CMC groups throughout the State. As a member of the statewide organization, you are welcome on all trips, regardless of which group sponsors them. Each trip is classified by difficulty so that you may choose those that fit your present ability level. Our leaders are volunteers, so there is no charge, except minimal carpooling fees, for going on trips. The introductory material in each Activity Schedule explains trip classification and answers many other questions about trip. Peruse posted scheduled trips by clicking on one of the archived Compass Newsletters above.
