Outdoor Moo Cow Minutes

Derpyderp Outdoor Tippers,
I hip hope you all had a great time with this tropicana weather.
We bought a new raft and pump!  That means that we can expand the locations and frequency of our white water rafting trips.  So get raving for rapids!
Our contract with Venture Outdoors is over, so we will not be working with them anymore.  So that means no free ski trip.  However, if you are hankering from that ski bug, check out Pitt's two ski clubs.
Next week we will be holding elections.  All positions are on the table.  This includes, President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, white water chair, climbing chair, backpacking/hiking chair, special events chair, gear master, and caving chair.  Details for each position can be seen in the link below.   Make sure you get your nominations into Matt if you want to run for something.  email those to him at
Anna and Rita also went over protocol for handling hypothermia and heat stroke, it was chilling, and heated, somehow at the same time.
That is all Folk.
Besties till the endsies!

Meeting on Tuesday the 17th

Hello Folk, 

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. 

We have a meeting @ 9pm tomorrow in Cathy 349.  

Assuming the room has a projector, I am going to give a 10-15 minute presentation on some trips I've done and a few things I've learned along the way.  I'd like to think it's not just meaningless spray, but it has a ton of photos so you can always just tune me out. 

Hope to see you then,

I hope everyone had a fergilicious Christmas break.  There will be no meeting this Tuesday 1/10.  Our first meeting will be next Tuesday 1/17 at 9 pm location TBD.  Matt will be talking about his trip to the Alps to get some winter stoke going.  Hope to see you there.  
Also, check out this competition!


Guess what?! There's STILL TIME to sign up for the Sustainable Solutions competition! You can sign up with a team OR as an individual.

Not sure what Sustainable Solutions is? Like us on Facebook at "Sustainable Solutions 2017" to learn more or read below!

Signing up with this link DOES NOT mean you have to compete! It simply means you will attend one or both of our introductory information sessions tomorrow (1/10) and Wednesday (1/11), both from 6:30pm - 8:30pm in WPU 548. 

If you sign up as an individual, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you attend both of these sessions, as they will be excellent opportunities for you to form teams with other students that signed up individually.

Thank you! And let me know if you have any questions!
