What a time to be alive – A beautiful secretarial interim. @Sam- I am your father. @Julia- game on. Welcome to 2k17 all! Stuff will happen!

 

What have we done?!

  • Michael went to a fortress ( a castle on a mountain) in Israel. He saw the dead sea. 
  • Anna & Duncan & Alyssa went not snowshoeing in acadia. Tactical Buttsliding most definitely occurred. Microspikes were remembered. 
  • Park and Lilli and Katie went XC skiing. Park is now in Bermuda. Apparently unrelated.
  • Keenan snowshoooooo’d on Runnals. Snow said to have a similar crunch to an Oreo. Unclear on whether or not it was Double Stuf
  • ICE COOT WAS DANK
    • Some snowshoers didn’t use snowshoes… intruiging
    • Other snowshoers carried snowshoes for nearly an hour.
    • Fish were caught from beneath the ice. Hiking also occured!
      • Rumor has it that Karlene was here snowmobiling!!
    • Indoor climbers pranked a lot. 

What’s happenin’ in ’17?

  • Lilli wants some low-key MicroSpike action on Sunday. Possibly to the west Coast
  • Max is leading an XC ski clinic on TUESDAY! 1pm-ish. Contact mrabra20@colby.edu to colead with him!!
  • Logan wants Cadillac sunrise hike on Sunday. Possibly has a co-lead?!
  • Julia wants a sunset French hike! PSA that Logans low-key and Julia’s low-key are probably a little different. This one will be more low-key for beginner adventurers!
    • Anna wants to    →     Acadia (again! yay!) 
  • Tele clinic Wednesday at da Loaf. Led by Ryan and Spencer. Unequivocally the best thing in the coming week. No experience necessary!
