POC Newsletter 9/30/08

BIG NEWS: POCtoberfest!

We are going to West Virginia October 11-14. Camping is about $10 for members, plus money for gas (~$50-60) and food. If you have friends that want to come, they can, but need to sign waivers. They will also pay the full camping price per night. Every sport will be available for you to try. We will be in close proximity to the New River Gorge for climbing and the Gauley River for kayaking, as well as awesome caves, hikes, and mtn bike trails.

Important for those going: 1) try to bring your own gear if possible (tents and sleeping bags especially), 2) no pets please (campground rules), and 3) a sign up sheet will be emailed later so you can sign up for the trip.

CPR TRAINING: This Saturday there will be 2 classes held at Sage Yoga located in River Market across from Potbelly. It's $10 for club members, free (and mandatory) for officers. A sign-up sheet will be emailed for both slots: 2-4pm and 4-6 pm. Questions: Randy rahart at purdue.edu or Kaylin This email address is being protected from spambots.

KAYAKING: Lastly, roll sessions are in the corec pool Wednesdays 8-9:30 and Fridays 7-8:30. If you want to kayak during POCtoberfest, you MUST go to roll session first and demonstrate your abilities. And why yes, you DO have to be able to swim! ;)
