Newsletter 11/05/2013

Today is the day you heed the call. Today, you joyfully romp from the halls of oppression to the wide-open world beyond. Today, you put your foot down. You're sick of exams and refuse to let grades place spherical you in a linear stereotype. Your footsteps are words and the unbeaten trail is an empty Adventure Manual.

It's your job, Purdue Outing Club, to fill the Manuel with stories so grand that it's hard to believe only one beard and his friends could accomplish something so incredible. Because fall is coming to an end and we all know what that means. As we bundle in layers and the sorority girls don their horrendous UGGs, winter slowly brings more people indoors.

POC, I ask with a hopeful heart, do not let Indiana Winter bring you down. Stay adventure. Stay dirty. Stay true to the planet that draws you outside.

PAST TENSE

On Sunday I went leaf peeping! Don't you love the leaves? I'm happy they're sticking around this year because last year they all got knocked off in storms. Never seen campus so purty.

PRESENT TENSE

If you've got any adventure you want to add to the POCBook (which happens to be the Adventure Manuel I mentioned above), then send your story to Pres. Schmid with POCBook in the subject line. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

OFFICIAL IMPORTANT CLUB BUSINESS

During POCtoberfest, there was a violation of club sports conduct. We as a club will be held responsible. We hold all members to high standards in the Purdue Outing Club, and we expect club events (POCtoberfest, POCAR, lock-ins, etc.) to be experienced as such. All policies to be followed can be found in the club sports handbook (note the standards of conduct section) at the following link http://www.purdue.edu/recsports/programs/club_sports/pdf/12-13_Club_Officer_Handbook.pdf. Due to the infraction, the gear closet will be closed for the rest of the semester. You have two weeks to return your gear. Only on approved trips will CONSULTANTS be able to check out gear. As of right now, our approved trips include the Muir Valley Volunteer Day (Gear may be used on Saturday, but climbing/mountain bikes/backpacking gear will not be allowed to be used on Sunday), POCAR, and climbing/kayaking lock-ins. Roll sessions will still be held. Please, if you see a member violating any of the policies outlined in the handbook, report it to an officer immediately. We do not want the club to be shut down. Do you? This is our one warning. Any questions can be emailed to President Alex Schmidberger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

My friends, from the the day we entered this world, we were born to explore. Each and every day our knowledge expands and our experiences morph who we are. You're not the stay-at-home type. You do not fit the needle straight mold that society forces our whimsical imaginations into. YOU are powerful. You were born with the right to take advantage of the earth you've been thrust upon. Treat it with care, but, more importantly, treat it with dare.

Relax and Look Ahead,

Sara
