Olympia Mountaineers Annual Recognition & Awards Banquet - Oct 27

You're invited to join us for the annual Olympia Mountaineers Banquet! Each year we gather to celebrate the work we have done, the fun we have had, and the friendships we made during the 2018 program year.

We recognize graduates all of our classes and present awards to leaders who have shown exemplary service in climbing, conservation, youth outreach, scrambling, and hiking. Super Volunteers are recognized and achievement pins and patches are presented for climbing and hiking milestones reached during the year. We also present The Branch Service award, honoring an Olympia Mountaineer for Outstanding Service over a multi-year period.

This year our featured speaker  is Heather Hansen, author of the book Wildfire: On the Front Lines with Station 8 (Mountaineers Books). "Wildfire brings equal measures of science and drama to the issue of combating ever larger, more intense wildland fires. Author Heather Hansen spent eighteen months immersed in fire science and policy, shadowing the elite firefighters of Station 8 near Boulder, Colorado, through their daily training regimens, public interaction, and an all-out, week-long battle against a mountain blaze that tested their intensively honed skills and endurance."  -- Rachel Jagareski
