Meeting tonight!

Hey folks,

We'll be meeting tonight on the WPU patio at 9pm,and having Seneca sign ups again. The trip will now be November 10-12.  If you were on the last trip you'll get priority.  If you're psyched to go make sure you've paid dues, signed a waiver, and that you've gone to one of the workshops at the wall.  

Tonight the Pitt bike collective is having an alleycat race through Pittsburgh!  If you pumped to pedal, go to the Bike Cave under Posvar by that big yellow sculpture thing at 7:30 tonight.  The entry fee is $5 and costumes are encouraged! 

Best,
Jon

Meeting tonight!

Hey folks,

Get ready for good times because there's a POC meeting tonight.  Come hang out at 9pm on the WPU patio.  

This week we're having sign ups for the Lewisburg caving trip, October 20-22.  If you're psyched on small, dark spaces get down here early because it's going to be a relatively small trip. 

If you'd rather plummet toward the earth than go through it, there's a skydiving trip October 21.  Experience the miracle of human flight, then abandon it and experience a whole bunch of gravity.

This Saturday, October 14, Ascend is having free yoga classes.

Gear Fest is going to be this Saturday as well, in Schenley Plaza.  There will be gear, there will be beer, it'll be pretty sweet. 

Mountain bike group rides and trail trots are going out again this week.  If you want to get involved in either come up and all to us about it tonight.

Best, 
Jon
