September General Meeting

Wednesday, September 28, 7:00 p.m.

Meyer Auditorium at The Terraces at Summitview

(Formerly the Living Care Retirement Center), 215 N 40th Ave Yakima

PROGRAM:  Backcountry Technology in Search and Rescue

If you take technology with you into the backcountry, you have probably learned that deciding which tools to use and getting them to work properly can sometimes be a challenge.  This month Sage Lagron of the Central Washington Mountain Rescue (CWMR) Technology Committee will share their experiences using readily available tools such as InReach, CalTopo, Gaia GPS, and Slack, to supplement conventional paper maps and ham radio during Search and Rescue missions to communicate with and track team members.   

NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION is 6:00-7:00 p.m. before the general meeting in the Village CafĂ© West room.

Leader: Dan Fortier (509-952-5900). This is a time set aside to welcome new members to the club, provide information about Cascadians, and answer any questions that new members may have.

2022 Cascadians Annual

Hey, Cascadians!

Now is the time to submit your trip reports, photos, or other items for our 2022 Cascadians Annual.  The Annual is the club’s historical record, and it is important to include as many activities as possible for the archives.

Now that we are returning to a more normal schedule for outings, please take a few minutes (while details are fresh) to send your photos and a brief trip report for this year’s publication.  Mention the destination and date.  Identify people in close-up photos and designate who should get photo credit.

I will not scour Cascadians Facebook or Forum searching for trip reports.  If you want your event included in the annual, please send directly to me at  Submit now to avoid the year-end rush!
