After an excruciatingly long break, the long-awaited return of Sexcretary Krumholz is already here, if only for one week. So it’s time to dust off those reading glasses, polish those reading chairs, and get ready for a doozy. The following are the mostly-true, probably-unadulterated goings-on of the Outing Club this past week.

 

What we definitely did:

  • Dom ‘More or’ Leskiw (and others) watched the sunrise Friday morning then ate one pancake. For those wondering, the pancake was larger than his face (an above-average 13 face units)
  • Taryn ‘Go’ Waite went skiing on Friday – it was fun
  • Michael ‘Definitely not Cosmo’ Kramer and Macey ‘Smallfire’ Broadwater led a trip to Megunticook – Macey said it was “wonderful, spectacular, cemetery, fruitful”
  • Luke ‘PB and’ Kelly and Sam ‘Falls Into’ Wells and Henry ‘The’ Doud and others (including me!) went to Bald Mtn, yet (unexpectedly but thankfully) did not become bald
  • Max ‘Honest’ Abramson went XC skiing at Quarry Road on Monday – no one asked him a follow up question
  • People played with glow sticks on Monday! Bentley ‘Tippy’ Meyer did not fall over, which I for one don’t believe
  • Charlie ‘Corn on the’ Cobb went XC skiing all day every day, which seems a little extreme (XCtreme?) in my opinion
  • Dom ‘Nickname Already Established’ Leskiw and Macey ‘Ditto’ and others went sledding on Friday – Dom almost hit a tree accidentally, did hit his roommate on purpose
  • Max went to foss and danced in contra style

What we probably will do:

  • Max wants to lead a cross country skiing clinic sometime this week (preferably Tuesday)
  • The Colby Garden is hiring student workers – ask Nick Pattison (nmpattis@colby.edu) about it!
  • Soren probably wants to lead two trips per weekend for the rest of the semester – he wasn’t at the meeting but it seems likely

Wilderness First Responder:

  • If you’re interested in the Wilderness First Responder course taking place over Jan Plan Break, get in contact with Max Abramson (mrabra20@colby.edu) immediately!

Tele Clinic:

  • Ryan is running another tele skiing clinic; keep an eye out for sign ups

Winter Katahdin:

  • There will be another Winter Katahdin trip in February on the 24th and 25th! Keep an eye out for sign ups going out soon.

Question of the Week:

  • Fruit at bottom – 9
  • Flavoring – 6

Well, that’s all from me. Hope you have a wonderfully cold Jan Plan Break, and may you stare at the sun a lot but not for a dangerous amount of time.

Signing off,

Samwise
