2021 Backpacking Building Blocks Year-End Celebration

2021 Backpacking Building Blocks Year-End Celebration

Past and current B3 students, grads and volunteers and their 'significant others' are welcome for this fun evening of sharing experiences and photos and providing input to the 2022 class! T-shirts will be presented to our 2021 graduates at the event. Sandwiches and salads will be provided. We hope you can join us! We will have the event in-person at the Seattle Program Center (masks required and we ask that any in-person attendees please be fully vaccinated) but we will also share the proceedings on zoom so that you can participate from home.
Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers event.

This will be an fun evening for past and present students, grads and volunteers to share their experiences from the course and from their amazing trips, for us to celebrate our new graduates (T-shirts!!) and the accomplishments of all of our students, to thank our amazing volunteers, and for new connections and old to be renewed.   Backpack leaders and avid backpackers from any branch as well as spouses/significant others are welcome!  A casual dinner of sandwiches and salads will be provided. Share your photos and stories from the trail and get ideas for your 2022 trips!  Everyone is invited to bring a plate of your favorite 'trail treats' to share.  Please RSVP here so that we know how much food to get.

COVID-19 SAFETY NOTE:  This event will follow Mountaineers Covid-19 policies for indoor events including masking and distancing (see our policies at this link) we ask that everyone who attends in person be fully vaccinated.    We will be in Gibson Hall room A which should give us plenty of room for distancing and we will keep the entry doors open for additional ventilation (so dress warmly!).

We'll also share the proceedings on zoom too for those uncomfortable with an in-person format (though be aware that your ability to interact with other attendees through the zoom connection will be limited).
