    Just looked at the weather forecast and Calgary has a snowfall warning in affect for tonight and tomorrow. Amounts 10-20 cms. I am going to examine the weather closely today and I may cancel the trip tomorrow. Can everyone that is going message or text me their number so I can notify you guys and gals tonight.

    I am going to change the objective as we only have three people, the weather forecast and avi forecast is not looking good and Brandon doesnt have avi gear. Suggestions on an alternate route.

    Just a note to everyone that Tom will be showing up Sunday Morning at 6am to conduct a quick competency test regarding everyone's ability to use their avalanche equipment. it should take about 20 minutes to do. This is a yearly exam and once a member has undergone it, will not need to be retested until a year later. It is important that everyone is on time Sunday morning. Should anyone not be able to prove that they are efficient in doing a search with their beacon, they will not be allowed on this trip. That includes me too :)
