On Saturday Night SLU is hosting a mixer with their outing club.  It’s going to be a great time so if you want to go meet in the townhouse parking lot at 8:45.  Drivers are needed! Also wear an Olympic themed costume.  

-Please return snowshoes, microspikes, etc as soon as you are done with them, they are in high demand! Gear hours are on Friday from 3 to 4, or you can talk to Patrick (conlonpc@clarkson.edu) or Paul (doernepm@clarkson.edu).

-In the wise words of Will, “Avalanches are like really bad.” If you do any backcountry skiing or even hiking in avalanche prone areas you should be trained in avalanche safety and have proper equipment. (See the end of this email for advice about not dying)

-I’m working on a contact info database for the active members of the club.  I have posted a link to the Google Doc in the ‘files’ tab of the CUOC Facebook page and I have also added the link to the signature of all my emails if you’re not on Facebook.  If you want to be on this contact list come to the meetings and add yourself!

TRIP OF THE WEEK:
