Newbie Night!

Interested in Hyperborea? Have no idea how to prepare for the Canadian wilderness? Or perhaps you went last year and know everything there is to know?

Come on out for the Hyperborean Newbie Night and share in all the knowledge, and a few drinks with friends.

We’ll be downstairs at the Firkin on King, starting at 7pm sharp with a presentation that covers a lot of the things you need to ask yourself, then we’ll have open knowledge-sharing question time.

If there’s a subject you’re passionate about and would like to say something about it as part of the presentation, please let Dom Scott or Shane Baelish know and we can make it happen!

We will also be drawing the winner of our Hyperborea raffle at the Newbie Night. Prizes are either a golden ticket to Hyperborea or a huge (2′ x 5′) print!

You don’t have to be there to win and you can buy your ticket in advance or in person at the event

Theme & Effigy Announcement

Hail Hyperboreans!

We are excited to announce the theme and effigy for this years journey to the land of Hyperborea, land beyond the North wind.

By way of Montreal (land north even to us), the “Les mains dans le feu” (hands in the fire) collective brings us our effigy “Le soleil de minuit” (The Midnight Sun). In this light, Hyperborea’s 2018 theme will be ‘Azimuth’.

Azimuth is the angle that travelers use to align themselves with the true north. For us Hyperboreans, the Azimuth represents our compass. It guides us when we are lost; it orients us when we cannot see the path. It is the tangent we follow as we journey across horizons, beneath arcs sketched by morning stars across the northern sky – until finally, we arrive home, are welcomed, and can congregate together under the glow of our midnight sun.
