It’s official. The 30th MFPI National Congress and Climb will be held in Bukidnon come April 16-19, 2009 and will be hosted by Northern Mindanao Mountaineering Society (NORMMS) Ecological Foundation Incorporated. I wasn’t able to attend last year’s National Congress and Climb in Mayoyao and is quite excited this year’s congress will be held here in Mindanao.
Here’s the complete advisory posted on NORMMS website:
The Northern Mindanao Mountaineering Society (NORMMS) Ecological Foundation Incorporated will be hosting the 30th MFPI National Congress and Climb on April 16-19, 2009 in the beautiful province of Bukidnon.
Major activities include the following:
1. Mt. Kitanglad – Mt. Dulangdulang Traverse
2. Mt. Dulangdulang – Dalwangan (Traverse)
3. Mt. Kitanglad (Backtrail)
4. Basic Mountaineering Course (MFPI-affiliated)
Limited slots only (maximum of 5 members per mountaineering club). This is to promote camaraderie among other mountaineering organizations.
The corresponding congress brochure/flier/poster:
If you want a full listing of the different programs and itineraries listed above, read it here. I’ve been both to Dulang and Kitanglad on separate occasions and on one grueling traverse climb. Feel free to read my stories, here (Dulang), here (Kitanglad) and the traverse climb here.
I will be updating this announcement soon.
