Join us for the biggest blowout holiday party of the season!

Friday December 12th, 2014


The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club's Mountaineering Section invites you to our annual holiday party joined by our friends from the American Alpine Club DC Section.



Ron Hinckley has generously offered up his house again for the party and it will be a celebration for the books!  In store we've got an auction to benefit the club with some seriously awesome items up for grabs; the ever-fun Yankee gift swap; our annual photo contest with sweet prizes; Golden Biner Awards; and who doesn’t love climber drinking games?!


And let’s not forget the food and booze!  This will be a potluck-style event – we’ll take care of the main dish, you show off your side-dish culinary talent and spirits.  The old addage “the more, the merrier” applies!

A few notes about the gift swap:  It'll be the standard Yankee gift swap split up into groups so that it doesn't take the whole evening and you have time to mingle and enjoy the rest of the festivities.  Gifts should be around the $15 range if you want to participate and do not need to be climbing-related, but of course, no one's going to complain if they are. ;)  We've had some great gifts in the past and it's a fun game.  If you have any other questions, just send us an email.


So put on your party pants and don’t miss this.  We look forward to seeing you!
