OBSIDIAN WINTER OUTING
February 25 and 26

That exciting Winter sports area - Mt. Hood - will be our playground for two days and nights. If you can go up Friday, you'll get the jump on the fun at Mazama Lodge - skiing, folk-dancing, sleeping and eating! Please sign up by Tuesday - 5 p.m. so that we may let them know how many to count on for meals. If you find by Tuesday evening that you can go after all - please call Gene Sebring, 3-5118.

CANADIAN ROCKIES GOAL OF SUMMERTIME CAMPERS
BANFF, LAKE LOUISE, AND JASPER TO BE VISITED

An away-from-home area was selected because that seemed to be what most of our members preferred. This particular area was picked as the one that most of us have not been to and would like to see and hike and climb in, and just lazy around if we are so inclined part of the time.

The dates will be August 5th to 19th and it will be one of those enjoyable bus trips. Our camp will probably be located between Banff and Lake Louise and we will travel to the various trails and mountains from there. There is a possibility that we may move north up toward Jasper for the second week if that seems desirable.

While your Outing Committee will make every effort to insure a successful and enjoyable summer camp it is actually the members that have a great deal to do with whether or not the Camp is a standout. If you come it will be!

The principal attractions will be magnificent and rugged scenery to look and photograph - hiking, climbing, and the evening campfires. We all will also include eating those tasty and hearty meals our summer outings always feature. And then of course -- there's that warm and satisfying feeling that comes with being with a group of swell people.

All of our summer outings are interesting and enjoyable but this one has every possibility and indication of being one of the best; but in order for it to be so -- your presence is necessary. There are always people that are especially glad you are there. Don't disappoint them.

So when you are thinking about your vacation, plan it the easy way and leave the details for one of your most enjoyable vacations to your Outing Committee. They are working for you and welcome the opportunity
