This is the Meetup group for the Inside Edge Club. Members of this Meetup group are either members or prospective members of the Inside Edge Club. By joining this Meetup group, you will be able to view and participate some of the activities organized by the Inside Edge Club. Note: it is an adults only club, so you must be 19 years of age to join.
The Inside Edge Club is a non-profit society formed for the purpose of promoting participation in sports and related activity. The Club has been been providing opportunities for it members in the Vancouver lower mainland area since 1971 (registered as a non-profit society since 1981). Originally started as a ski club, it quickly expanded to be a year-round venue for activities.
Most of the activities can be participated by Meetup group members, but Club members do get preferred rates for these activities.
So what else does one get for the annual dues?
In addition to hosting several ongoing sports and activities, the Club also has a lodge in Whistler (which you can only book with full membership). Every Club member gets 1 night stay included in each year's dues.
Some of the sports & activities we offer are:
Volleyball and Soccer - indoor from September through April, and outdoor during the summer months. You do not need to be a Club member to play.
Softball - we have our own softball league which takes all levels, absolute beginners through expert, and distributes the various levels evenly (as possible) amongst the teams. This allows new players to benefit from the more experienced players. Every season we recreate teams randomly ensuring maximum social interaction. Some of the other leagues around town are actually spin-offs from the Inside Edge Club.
Ski trips - even though we have a lodge in the best ski area in the world (Whistler), every season we also organize trips to other mountains in BC. One of these is a get together with a few other ski clubs for friendly and fun competition on the hill.
Camping Trips - when there's no snow, and the weather's warm, why not camp? And as the reason for the club is to promote activity, outings do include optional hiking, cycling, kayaking, etc., components.
There's a lot more, social events too, but rather than running on too long, you can check our website at www.insideedgeclub.bc.ca or attend our monthly 'Club Night' for more information.
