Meeting Minutes 249 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Do you like walking really far?
Are you a fan of scenic vistas?
Does everything you need for a weekend fit in a backpack?
Do gophers scare you?
You should try DOLLY SODS™!

Dolly Sods is our intermediate backpacking trip to this super cool spot in good ol' West Verganeeyuh.  Y'all'll be hoofin it right round 20 megafeet over the weekend so this is the kind of trip where you want some experience packing with your back before you go.  The trip will be from Friday the 19th to the 21st, sign up here if you're stoked: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSetgWVFaQx5zmxLbWBmjCED4KIh7a53gOAH-kJmB5t6GOTDIQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Grab your most fortuitous cookware and get ready for some wholesome gosh darn camaraderie because Nicole is having a potluck Wednesday night.  Bring food and your beautiful selves.  

And now a message from everyone's favorite local Breanne: 
If you're interested in some handy dandy volunteering for our parks, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy offers tons of opportunities! This week, there's garden volunteering at Schenley Plaza on Thursday. Check out the website for more information! 

Good luck an midterms!

Best,
Jon

P.S. Pitt doesn't recycle

Meeting minutes 242 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Don't tell my mom, but this is what went down at the meeting yesterday.

There were sign ups for the fall break trip to the New River gorge.  Personally I'm a big fan of the Old River gorge but I guess their new stuff is good too.  The New has some incredible rock climbing, world class whitewater, beautiful hikes, and sweet caves.  If you have a mountain bike we might be busting those out as well.  If you're interested in climbing and don't already know how to belay, you need to go up to the climbing wall in Trees Hall for a belay lesson.  There should be someone from the outdoors club there Monday-Thursday 4:30-7p and Monday after 8p.  

I think that's pretty much it. Seriously, don't tell my mom.

Best,
Jon
