February 2018 Meeting

We will meet on February 13th in an upstairs meeting room of the Country Club of Rochester at 7 pm.  They will provide coffee & cookies, etc.  The cost will be $5 per head.  Hope you have the evening free.  Please notify Mary Starkweather if you plan to come, or even if you might come.  Otherwise it'll be assumed you won't be coming.  We have to provide CCR with numbers of people expected to show up.  Lawrence Creature is the featured presenter.

As Everest climbers walk through the Khumbu valley on their way to base camp, they pass one of the most unspeakably beautiful mountains in the world, Ama Dablam.  In his day, Sir Edmund Hillary was said to have called it unclimbable.  Today's modern tools and techniques make it more approachable, but it still holds many Himalayan-scale surprises.  Please join Lawrence Creatura as he describes his summit attempt on one of the most coveted peaks in the world, Ama Dablam.
