Meeting three days after Groundhog Day

Hey Folks, 

Meeting tomorrow at 9pm in A221 Langley

Get your voting shorts out because it's election season.  It's time for some good old fashioned political upheaval in the Outdoors Club.  Tomorrow night vote for whoever you think you can exercise the most influence over, and if they don't win take to the streets and stage a coup!

This Saturday we're going on a hiking day trip to Mt. Davis.  This is your chance to be the highest person in Pennsylvania, because good ol' Mt. Dave is the highest point in the state.

The best farmers in Oakland, Plant2Plate, are having a tea sale fundraiser.  If you want to snag some of those good good leaf bags, check out this form: https://pitt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5BUhy7wHuCVkH7T

See y'all tomorrow!

Best,
Jon

Meeting Minutes 4 days before Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Hope everyone had a good time getting a little alpine today.  Who needs to try and get on the next north face expedition to antarctica when we can just dry tool up the Chevron steps?

Nate's getting the trail running groupme going, so if you're interested in being a part of that send us an email with your name and phone number.

There's some pretty sweet stuff going on this week:
-There's a bouldering comp up at Pitt's climbing wall in Trees Hall this Saturday at 1pm.  $5 suggested donation for entry.  Come show off your weird Popeyeish forearms and intimate knowledge of climbing jargon.  While you're at it you can try and send some of Fin's chossy routes as well. 

-Wednesday the 13th the No Man's Land film festival is rolling through.  If you want to watch some of the coolest women in adventure sports do some crazy shit, this is the ticket.  With any luck this will convince some partners to swap out the bullshit Valentine's Day bouquet for something useful, like cams. 

-Lastly, it's time to bust out your synthetic neck fat and brush up on your Mitch McConnell impressions because this is your chance to slow roll and corrupt the democratic process.  Outdoors Club elections are next Tuesday, and if you haven't been calling every Russian oligarch you know you're already behind.  There's info on all of the board positions in the attached powerpoint  If you've got any questions or bribes shoot me an email.  Remember to keep your eyes on the fake news because Kieran's sex tape should be leaking any day now.  

Hope everyone has a good week.

Best,
Jon

Meeting 4 days before Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Hope you're hype for a happening hang because tonights meeting is going to be hawesome.

We're talking about safety and leave no trace principles in the outdoors.  Sounds boring but it's important to keep yourself and the woods from getting fucked up.

For you machiavellian types out there, get ready for a grab at some arbitrary power because board elections for next year are coming up next week.  We'll talk about all the officers' roles and responsibilities and people interested in running can start stuffing whatever skeletons they have into closets.  

Also the meeting is in A221 Langley at 9pm.

Best,
Jon

Meeting minutes 263 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

No sign ups this week, but there's still cool stuff going on!

PIST is having their rail jam tomorrow Friday the 16th at 6pm on Cathy Lawn, it's your chance to huck it real hard in front of all your classmates and professors.  

If surveys are what get you out of bed in the morning I've got a fucking treat for you:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe-1GBSjt7t52N2O-N_pkqh4XkBF0PhbRuLch8w_hHUkGeiOg/viewform
It's something about gear buying preferences

And now a message from your favorite local Breanne: "If you're interested in getting involved in a cause that raises funds and awareness for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, then check out Pitt Dance Marathon!  Some committee members came to our meeting this week to give us information about the event and we've attached the presentation (https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1CByBai_ZJpvhJF-mlZ5yaUfcXNdmObpnDiEsCLj08pc/edit?usp=sharing) to this email if you'd like to learn more. If you're stoked on raising money for the kids and want to be more involved email Breanne (brm168@pitt.edu) if you'd like to be a team captain for PDM!"

Hope everyone has a good week.

Best,
Jon
