Meeting Minutes 31 days after Groundhog Day

Hey folks,

Sorry these are so late, this week has just been one long punch in the dick.  

We had sign ups for Raystown Lake mountain biking and Dolly Sods backpacking.

Raystown is some super great mountain biking, and we'll be renting some bikes so if you don't have a ride you can borrow one.  It's a pretty physical trip, we'll be riding for about five ours with breaks, so keep that in mind when you're deciding to come.  This will be a day trip on Saturday March 23

Dolly Sods is a frickin beautiful area down in West Virginia.  This is our intermediate backpacking trip so the mileage is a bit more.  It's totally worth the walk though because Dolly Sods is one of the best backpacking areas on the east coast. This trip will be March 22-24.

Hunter is organizing some therapeutic hikes in Schenley within the next couple weeks, so if that's something you'd be interested you can throw your info in here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffmAcfO2T-D4cUeDWs70xemfbpBnpAVqWPrYfHqDFvDd_95Q/viewform

With some climbing trips coming up after break it's a good time to learn how to belay.  If you want to climb up some rocks you gotta learn how to keep your friends from falling off rocks.  Come up to the climbing wall in Trees Hall Monday from 7-10, Tuesday from 4-7, or Thursday from 4-10 and get a hold of Fin or Gus, they'll teach you everything you need to know.  

Hope everyone has a good break.

Best,
Jon
