Meeting minutes 24 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Last night we had sign ups for the trip to Cherry Springs.  It's a super swanky trip up to one of the darkest parts of the country, so if the stars are out they're going to be gorgeous.  During the day there are some pretty sweet hikes to be had.  If you're stoked to get a good look at some space stuff this weekend sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/VMVvt5waGfDQIXn23

Meeting 24 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

This weekend we're sending a trip out to Cherry Springs, maybe the coolest state park in Pennsylvania.  It's one of the darkest places in the country, on clear nights you can see the Milky Way.  Shit's crazy.  There's a bunch of cool hiking to be had during the day, but gosh diddly damn the stars are so beautiful out there I can't even describe it.  This trip will be leaving Friday and coming back Sunday

We're also going to be having sign ups for a short hike with Free the Planet on the Rachel Carson trail just outside of Pittsburgh.  There's a fracking well pad that's being built next to the trail named after Pittsburgh's most famous and influential environmentalist.  We're going to go check that fuckery out and talk about the impacts of fracking and the natural gas industry at large has on the environment and community around it.  We'll be heading out around 10am Sunday, and we'll be back in Oakland before 5.  

Hope everyone has a good week!

Best,
Jon

Meeting 17 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Hope everyone's stoked to meet tomorrow because that's what we're doing.  9pm in A221 Langley, it's the coolest thing you could be doing on a Tuesday night.  

We're going to be having sign ups for the Laurel Highlands backpacking trip and the Lewisburg caving trip at the meeting.  

Laurel Highlands is our beginner backpacking trip.  You'll be hiking a few miles the first day, sleeping in shelters, and hiking a few more miles on Sunday.  This is the perfect first backpacking trip if you've never gone before and want to try it!  We've got backpacks and sleeping stuff for people to borrow if they need.  This trip is tentatively scheduled for this weekend.  That's dependent on the weather though so we might end up rescheduling.

Lewisburg is a sweet caving trip down in West Virginia.  If you're psyched to get down and dirty in a hole this is the ticket.  If you're the kind of person who thinks stalactites are tight you're not going to find a better way to spend a weekend.  Plus you get to stare at Cris' butt a lot.  This trip will be going out this weekend, February 22-24.

We're also going to be talking about upcoming trips for the next couple weeks, so come by if you want to hear about that stuff.

Best,
Jon

Meeting 10 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Instead of having a meeting tonight we're going to not have a meeting tonight.  Could be wild, who knows.

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
