For any one of us to consider that we have had a successful year as an Obsidian, we must have had a season full of fun, adventure and good companionship. For all of us, I believe 1951 was just that sort of year, and I am certain 1952 will be just as good or better.

This year, as in the past, our club is starting its new year with committees which promise many activities throughout the entire season. For the committees to be successful in carrying out their various events or activities, it is first necessary for all of us to attend as many of their planned trips or social functions as possible. Remember, to attend is to have fun.

I can think of no event sponsored by the Obsidians which does not offer fun and good companionship. Yes, even that awful work trip to the cabin always offers a pleasant weekend which many have discovered evidently, for it is always well attended. So let's not lose sight of the fact that all activities planned in our club are planned for our enjoyment. Also remember there is always someone hoping they will see you at the activities just as you hope to see certain others there.

This thing is beginning to sound like a lecture. Well, maybe it is. I just wanted to lecture to you that for your own best possible enjoyment throughout 1952 -- attend as many fun-packed Obsidian hikes, climbs, picnics and parties as you have time for.
