POC: Pretty Outstanding Club

That's right folks, it's the POC meeting minutes, and we're here with your host, Nick Penatzer {aka the secretary, [aka whitewater chair, (aka some other nicknames I don't really care for...POC Ninja)]}       Errhmmm, anyway, if you are reading this, it means you (YES YOU!!!) have been graciously accepted into the greatest organization known to man, or at least the University of Pittsburgh.

Meeting info+ How to remove yourself from this email list

Hello everyone, First, if you are interested in removing yourself from the email list please go to and about 2/3 of the way down the page enter your address in the unsubscribe field. Second, we have a meeting tomorrow night on the William Pitt Union patio (the one the faces the cathedral).  It should be a pretty casual get together, but we will be accepting waivers and dues. We will also spend some time introducing the officers and talking about trips.   Ideally you can print out a waiver ( )  and bring it. (protip: print at 50%, put two on one page of paper, and give one to a friend. Cheers to the planet)  We will have copies of the waiver if you can't find a printer prior to the meeting.  We will also be collecting dues: 15 for the year or 10 for the semester. Cheers, Matt

We will be leaving from the William Pitt Union around 5:30pm and taking buses to the north shore.  I know this is super last minute but if your interested sign up ASAP and I will send confirmation e-mails out tomorrow morning.  Cheers, Matt
