HUSBAND LAKE
SITE OF 1957 OUTING
HUSBAND LAKE CHOSEN AS SITE FOR 1957 OBSIDIAN SUMMER CAMP

In the heart of our Three Sisters Wilderness Area, on the shores of beautiful Husband Lake next August you will find a group of happy Obsidians having their annual summer outing. Husband Lake was chosen because of the many pleasant memories brought to us by members of former camps. (Of which there were two) Also, there is an unlimited variety of hikes and entertainment in this area, to please every one. The Summer Camp being in our "own back yard" will, we hope, enable more folks to visit our "happy camp family".

The Forest Service District Ranger has offered his cooperation and tells us we couldn't have picked a nicer spot. Dave Faville says that Husband lake is one of the most beautiful and nicest places the Obsidians have ever camped. With this in mind, it would be well to mark your calendar for August 4 to 17th, or any time between those dates. There will be more information as the Obsidian progresses.

Your committee will be grateful for your suggestions for camp. Mac McWilliams, Nellie McWilliams, Gene Sebring and Ray Cavagnaro, Chairman.

We will depart from Eugene at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, drive to Santiam Lodge and ski from there to Jack Butte, where camp will be made for the night. The ski trip in is approximately 4 miles and will take about four hours. Since daylight is short, camp must be made early in the afternoon. Equipment required:

Skis with climbing skins or snowshoes

Ski poles and boots (These boots should double as climbing boots, should be warm and flexible.)

Very warm clothes - Parka, wind-proof pants tight weave), extra socks, long underwear, sweaters, good mittens and spares.
