POC Newsletter 11.09.08-11.15.08

Since I volunteered to do this newsletter AFTER the meeting on Tuesday, I may have forgotten a few things, so please fill in if I missed anything that you may have said at the meeting!!! 

CLIMBING LOCK-IN - Friday, December 5th @ climb time towers in Indy - 

  • For those who have never participated, this is a fun time of not just climbing, but other great entertainment. Examples: watching kayakers try to climb, crate stacking, caterpillar wrestling, climbing twister, etc. We are allowed to have something like 70 ppl attend, so it should be LOTS of fun!
  • $10/person regardless of membership + gas. I think we're going to have pizza and Andy bought a few cases of Ale8? Also, Andy mentioned that he will be posting a Google docs page for rides and registration similar to what we had w/ POCtober Fest. Be sure to sign up quickly!

BIKE REPAIR SEMINAR - day, time, and place need to be figured out, but let Rob Speiwick know you're interested. 
 

Dr. Robinson's talk about his mountaineering experience to the summit of Manaslu was great 2 weeks ago!! Dave has mentioned to him that our club would be interested in sponsoring a fundraiser to support his AIDS drug research interests. The idea so far is that we would advertise a talk that he would give about his mountaineering experiences in a huge forum. We will be putting our logo on any fliers and he will mention our club at the beginning of our talk.SO this would be a GREAT advertising opportunity for club membership as well!!! If you have ideas concerning this effort, let us know! 

Go to  <http://www.cyto.purdue.edu/> www.cyto.purdue.edu for more information about Dr. Robinson's goals and summits. 


CLIMBING TRIPS - 

There are a number of climbing trips still going out this week to Climb Time Towers. Pay attention to the mailing list for any further information. I am planning on heading down Saturday afternoon. So far, I think I have a full car, but feel free to meet behind the co-rec and meet us down there! This is the PERFECT time to climb indoors!

ROLL SESSION - 
Roll sessions are back in session: Wednesday 8-9:30 and Friday 7-8:30. There are a few rules that we ALL have to follow to avoid any further suspension!!! 

  1. NO ONE gets into the pool unless, Robert, Kate, Heidi, Derick, or David are in or beside the dive well.
  2. EVERYONE MUST get into the water using the mats.  NO MORE GETTING IN while in the water.  THIS GOES FOR EVERYONE!
  3. You take back the equipment you got out when you leave!  If you leave early YOU TAKE BACK WHAT YOU WERE USING!  If someone wants to switch you gear then YOU take back their equipment.
  4. At the end everyone pitches in to clean up!  Floors must be clean, equipment taken back.
  5. Do not grab the diving boards from your boat.
  6. Stay away from the lanes.  They are not a good place to practice rolling or tricks.
  7. WHEN PUTTING GEAR BACK YOU MUST PUT THE BOATS UP, HANG THE SKIRTS UP, AND STACK ALL EXTRA EQUIPMENT BELOW THE BOATS.
  8. CONSUTANTS MUST CHECK THAT THE ROOM IS CLEAN BEFORE LEAVING THE POOL.
  9. Don't be stupid.  You being stupid can screw up our ability to be in the water.

HOWEVER there IS a swim meet this Friday, so roll session will be canceled.
