POC Part 1: Rise of the T Shirts

Hey Everyone, Just a few tasty, tidbits about tonight's POC meeting. 1st: We will still be at the WPU. Why? Because the weather is still freakin beautiful, that's why. 2nd: If you want a t-shirt, the google doc is still up until tomorrow. Also, if you already signed up to get a shirt, you can bring us your money tonight. 3rd: That will be all until tonight's second email (the important one) goes out. Stay tuned for POC Part II: Revenge of the Dirty Laundry -Nick Peanut (zer)

Whose Days? The POC’s of Course

#NOTE: If you have an issue about anything, quit replying to the pitt outdoors gmail because no one moderates it. It is merely a channel through which we send out these messages. Instead email this handsome devil, Troy Ferland at tmf39@pitt.edu if you have any issues. Thank You. To our regular members, back to business. What day is it? Do you know what day it is? Huh? Do yuh? It's hump day, HUMP DAY, YEEAAAHHH at 4:01 A.M. to be specific. Well folks, we're back from that crazy long commercial break we call Wednesday through Monday. And for all of you who keep on reading week after week, you keep doing you because that's awesome. Two weeks ago's next week was Dolly Sods, which apparently was very awesome and Sods-like. There were beautiful vistas, some typical West Virginia dampness, and the man, the myth, the legend Erik (Daaaaa Beard) Jensen as your guide through the whole experience. What more could you ask for. Also, on Saturday, a group traveled with venture

POC Paradox

Is this Troy again, or is Nick back in action??? Stay tuned to find out (#SPOILER-It's Nick [or is it], and our POC president [possibly me] is Troy-ly a good person for helping me [you don't even have a clue to who this is anymore] out last week). First, REEL ROCK WAS AWESOME!!! For another year in a row, the film was great, and we bonded as a club (awwwwww). And even though my (and everyone else's) hopes of winning one of the raffle prizes was shattered (much like Connor's ankle) we all still had a pretty dope time, just like the climber's at the Lower Merced River (Reel Rock Reference, if you didn't make it, ask because its hilarious). Let's get down to brass tacks my outdoorsy people of Pitt. Do you love West Virginia? How 'bout slightly better weather than what we have here (emphasis on slightly)? Beautiful rolling hills of Autumn's amber colors? What about walking for long distances while simultaneously hauling all that you need to survive

A POC email, ON A SATURDAY???

Hello Fellow Friends of Future Foresty Endeavors (FFFFE). Yes it may be odd, but this is an important announcement for the POC. One of our members has come up with a T-shirt design for this year and we will begin taking orders (sizes and money) at the informal meeting this Tuesday (which will take place after the REEL ROCK event at Carnegie), as well as the next meeting. We will have some more info for you at these meetings but if you want to show some POC pride, come order a t-shirt. You can all thank our caving chair Jordi (you rock Jordi) for coming up with the design which will be featured below the next announcement. Also, due to the extended holiday weekend, there will be no Frisbee this Sunday because a large portion of the university, (including me) have gone home. Now for the designs: Attachments --------------- PITT_outdoors_club_front-01.jpg [784.39 KB]: https://pitt-community.symplicity.com/attachments/att5439700d81c1a/PITT_outdoors_club_front-01.jpg Attachm
