ACMG Course Cancellation (& Free Rock Workshop)

Early this morning just as we were about to distribute all the coordinating information regarding this weekends ACMG workshops, we received a phone call from Matt Mueller, the guide that has been heading up this activity.

He was, just, today selected to be a member of the Parks Canada Rescue Team. He has been waiting for this opportunity for years and he is required for training immediately. As a result he has had to cancel his expedition into Kluane which is the reason he was going to be in the area and available to us to run the workshops. The rest of the expedition team including the other guide have been forced to reschedule indeterminately. This subsequently means that we will not be able to offer the workshops.

As a consolation we are offering a one day rock climbing workshop for free at the Whitehorse rock gardens on Saturday, instructed by local climbers, the agenda will be similar the only reduction will be the removal of the Trad anchors section.

Unfortunately we will not be able to offer the Glacier and Crevasse rescue workshop at this time.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you can attend the workshop.

Check out http://trips.accyukon.ca/ to sign up. Priority will be given to those who were previously signed up for the ACMG workshops.
