August 2021 Newsletter

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” – Jack Kerouac

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: I just got back from the Tetons. I highly recommend them for climbing, though not the hot temps and smoky skies. It’s also a great place to people watch, as the guided clients have a wide variety of skill and styles on the Grand.

Please send pictures and trip reports to my the 25th of the month so I can include them in the newsletter.

August Meeting:

No meeting in August, so at least we don’t have to use zoom!

Support for Alex: As most of you know, one of our most dedicated members and instructors, Alex Korteum, suffered a stroke in January. His recovery and rehabilitation have been going well, and he’s enjoying being home after his stay in the hospital. If you’re so inclined, here is a link to a GoFundMe campaign that’s been set up to help him and his family as he recovers.

SAC 60th Anniversary! So what if SAC turns 61 this year? Last year doesn’t… Help us celebrate 60 years of SAC by climbing mountains! The club is attempting to summit all the Skagit 60 peaks in 2020/2021 to commemorate the 60th anniversary. The website used to track our progress is We only have 13 left!
