Winter Outing Set For Hoodoo March 16 to 23

Santiam Ski Lodge and Hoodoo Bowl on the Santiam Pass has been chosen as the scene of the Obsidian 1941 winter outing. The outing will be held during the university spring vacation, March 16-23.

The Hoodoo ski bowl provides excellent skiing for amateur and skilled skiers and cross country trips have been planned to Three Fingered Jack and Mount Washington.

Entertainment Planned

Evenings may be spent playing cards, dancing, reading, etc. Bryan Ryan is in charge of entertainment at the Lodge.

Cost of the outing will be $15 for the week, or $2.50 a day, and will include use of the ski tow. It will officially open with Sunday night’s lodging on the 16th, and close after breakfast on March 23.

This is the second outing that the Obsidians have held at Hoodoo. Last year’s outing, held here also, was considered very successful by the thirty Obsidians and friends who attended.

Committee Named

The committee in charge of arrangements is Sterling Behnke, Bill Parrish, and Glen Sims.

The outing as usual is open to members and non-members. Register early at Hendershotts.

Among recent new members is Phil Parks, boys’ adviser at Eugene High school. Welcome, Phil.

Obsidians Hold Dance, See Moving Pictures; Smorgasbord Is Planned

One of the most successful and enjoyable Obsidian events of recent months was the dinner and dance held January 30 at the Del Rey cafe. After the dinner, Dr. W. B. Neal, showed colored moving pictures of his recent trip to Central America. The Central American theme was cleverly carried out in the decorations.

Following the dinner and program, dancing was enjoyed, with Chester Pietka playing the accordian. Bob Wilson led the singing.

The social committee announces that its annual smorgasbord, always eagerly anticipated by Obsidians and their friends, will be held February 28. Doris Sims is chairman.

SPARKLING sunshine and crisp white snow make this scene, taken at the start of the trial to the ski area at Hoodoo bowl, an ideal winter picture. The Obsidian club’s annual winter outing will be here March 16 to 23.
