BOEALPS 2021 Executive Board Election

»Posted on Dec 19, 2020

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 2021 Board election has been temporarily paused.  The Board requested a waiver from Boeing Recreation to postpone the election, in order to allow the circumstances to be resolved.  The waiver was granted, which stipulates that the election be held and the new board be announced to the membership no later than March 9th, 2021.

Elections Update: The elections resumed March 6th, 2021 with a new ballot sent out inviting members to recast their votes (all previously cast ballots were voided). Results were announced at the March Board meeting, and the 2021 Executive Board is now listed on the organization page. Congratulations to the new Board members, and many thanks to outgoing members for their service !

2020 ACC Cancelled

»Posted on May 10, 2020

We are sad to announce that BOEALPS Alpine Climbing Class is cancelled for 2020.  But we plan to resume the ACC class in 2021 (conditions allowing), and are excited for next year!
 
For the second half of March and all of April we saw consistent slow improvement in the COVID-19 Trends in Washington that had the potential to allow our state to recover enough to proceed with a delayed ACC this summer.  But that improvement trend leveled off at about double the ‘confirmed cases per day’ level we were hoping for, and the latest data now is unfortunately suggesting the start of a resurgence of cases as people have relaxed their behavior back to old norms… instead of the continued improvement we needed to responsibly proceed with the class.
