They came. They saw. They talked and hung out on couches.

By the Grace of God, Teddy completes the minutes this week, allowing you to live vicariously through words to experience what proved to be another epic day in the graffiti-ed temple.

 

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!!?!???

Skiiers: The club continues to be occupied by people who CANNOT APPRECIATE THE PRESENT. Fall is at its prizzzime, people! Just kidding, these rad folks went to Sunday River and tore it up (literally, like with mud and dirt): Lex, Emma, Cat, Buck, Spencer!

Beehive: Eric and Reesy and Sage (among others, who did not choose to make the trek to M-low ce soir) hiked in Acadia this weekend, in costume!

Tumbledown: Gregory, Ramon, and Logan hiked the loop trail of Tumbledown, helping dogs and humans along the way to make it safely through caves and to live their dreams of seeing a moose! (Alyssa’s costume was super convincing I guess?)

Parents Hike: Brittany and Anna and FORTY OTHER PEOPLE went hiking via the magic that is Parent’s Weekend! Dogs and middle-aged humans were there.

Sugarloaf: Buck and Maddi hiked it! Buck decided socks were a no-go on this one, and it worked out anyway!

 

WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING!!!?

LTT: Tell us by tonight if you want to go on this!

There is a mandatory meeting on Wednesday from 4-6 pm to talk about risk management with Ryan “Wolfdog” Linehan as well!
