On June 20 and 21 the Obsidians and their friends were guests of the Forest Service at the Belknap CCC Camp above McKenzie Bridge. Saturday evening we were treated to an excellent dinner, the making of which was supervised by Roy Elliott. The Forest Service also provided us with lodging and our meals on Sunday.

Saturday evening was spent playing baseball, dancing, and conferring with the various Forest Service officials.

Obsidians present were: Dorr Hamlin, Mertie Hamlin, Glen Sims, Florence Sims, Cliff Stalsberg, Doran McKee, Bertie McKee, Robert Lemon, Ray Boals, Dr. Omar Gullion, Walter Banks, Bob Moffett, Gudmund Kaarhus, Percy Brown, George Korn, Louis Waldorf, Bob Swennes, Norman Lee, and Harold Trotter.
