Sierra Nevada Holiday Dinner

Posted on: November 2nd, 2009 by Sierra Nevada Section

When: Dec 6, 2009

AAC Treasurer Jack Tackle will present “Alaska Alpine Style” at 7:30 on Sunday, December 6 at Spenger’s Fish Grotto in Berkeley. The show is part of the American Alpine Club’s Sierra Nevada Section Holiday Dinner. Everyone is welcome to attend, and you can join us for the dinner and show or just the show. Dinner requires an RSVP and prepayment. For the show-only option, you can pay at the door. If you attend the dinner, cocktail hour will begin at 5:00 PM followed by a buffet. Jack’s presentation will begin at 7:30, and for those attending the show only, doors will open at 7:15. The show will be followed by a raffle with some cool prizes.

Jack Tackle has over thirty years’ experience of all types of climbing around the world. He has completed twenty-eight expeditions to Alaska, and maybe his best earlier this year. He holds fifteen first ascents–Denali’s Isis Face, Hunter’s Diamond Arete, Barille’s Cobra Pillar, it goes on. Jack Tackle is the Man. In case you’ve been asleep, you can learn a bit about him in “Down to the Wire,” Alpinist 1, Winter 2002. You don’t want to miss this show!
