What we done did:

  • Lacey was unsuccessful in doing work so she went on a really long walk in the upper arb and ran into a person from Delta ambulance, she also saw a bird attack a chipmunk, on campus!
  • Taryn went on a hike to the Bigelows and it was beautiful, and they had grey jays come really close to them and landed on someone’s tupperware.
  • PSA: Margaret did a woody plants TA session and found some really delicious grapes behind the admissions building (but pay attention to the poison ivy)
  • Lindsey went on a sunrise hike, went for a couple runs, and she also went to the woodsmen bonfire and met some new friends
  • Abby went for a run the other day and scared a bird into a window, but it flew away!
  • Bentley planned on hiking Morse Mountain, but the parking lot was full so he went to Popham Beach
  • Taryn went canoeing for her capstone and it was really windy on Tuesday!
  • Lacey went to a bog on Tuesday for the first time. She had wanted to go to a bog since before coming to colby, but she finally got to go to one! They also got to take their shoes off and walk through the woods.

 

What we gonna do:

  • Margaret wants to go to Moxie Falls over fall break, Taryn wants to go too! (Look for the sign ups the week before fall break)
  • Jack wants to lead a trip this weekend, who wants to lead one with him?

the outing club’s stance on bias incident:

we as an executive council wanted to address an email that went out this past week. The email contained an image that was offensive and in poor taste. This email listserv is moderated by K Council (our co-presidents, secretary, and treasurer) and every message sent goes to us first and is approved or revised. Unfortunately, we cannot preview images and this one got past our moderation system. This in no way reflects the values of the Outing Club or the student who sent the email. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to coc@colby.edu.
