NEW SLACK: we’re trying out Slack as a possible alternative to the listserv. JOIN LINK. Listserv still operational

Join our email list of 3,000+ people to get updates on what the MOC is up to! You do not need to be a member to join the list.

To send a message to the list email [email protected] PLEASE REMEMBER NOT TO HIT REPLY ALL UNLESS ALL 3,000+ PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW!

Things that are OK for the list:
  • Asking advice for planning a trip
  • Offering or requesting a ride for an outdoors trip you have planned or to the MOC house
  • Important safety information (gear recalls, dangerous conditions)
  • Selling used outdoors gear (within reason, please do not spam if no one wants it!)
  • Information on courses that may be of interest to the MOC (WFA, mountaineers skills, etc)
Things that are NOT OK on the list:
  • Offering or requesting a ride somewhere not for the outdoors (ie Toronto and NYC are not ok, but if you are doing a road trip to Vancouver to visit all the national parks post it!)
  • Roommate requests
  • Any plans involving illegal activities
  • Generally, anything not outdoors related
  • Commercial Advertisement

If you’re not sure that your message is right for the list, email [email protected] and we’ll let you know!

Please read the guidelines for more details.
