    More exciting news for the club!

    MEC has agreed to support the GMMC and provide us with percentage back on all purchases made when using the link bellow.

    I know I'm not the only gear addict that makes weekly purchases so I'm sure there are others shopping for a pretty bouquet of cams, or some slick new winter gear.

    Click this link, snag the stuff you were going to buy anyway, and help us out
