VOL. XVIII JULY 1958 - OBSIDIANS, INC.-P.O. BOX 322 - EUGENE, OREGON N0. 6

Summer Camp to be A Free-Lance Affair

Because sufficient interest in going to Grand Canyon, Bruce and Zion Parks as a group was not shown, there will be no bus transportation for the club to the three parks this summer, Only 15 were definitely signed up„ Minimum for the bus was 29.

Some club members, however, have said they still wish to go, by private car in their own group. Such a trip has club approval. Those who do this will have to get together, make their own arrangements and cook their own meals, unless they can somehow manage to hire a cook for their smaller group.

Money, of course, will be returned to those who put their cash on the barrel head for the larger, club camp. Call Bob Medill (RI 6-2908) or Kay Fahy (DI 5-4186) if you are interested in a deal like this.

Skyline Trail From Pass to Pass

One of those trips many of us talk about every year, but one which is usually too tough to attempt, because of the logistics, is shaping up for July 27. This year we can actually make the trip on the Skyline Trail from the McKenzie Pass to the Santiam Pass.

A bus will take us from Eugene to the McKenzie intersection with the Skyline. We'll hike north on the Skyline, past Mt. Washington and Big Lake to the Santiam. There the bus will be waiting for us.

This means the Carpenter Mountain trip scheduled for that weekend is canceled. If you are interested in this trip, call Margaret Markley directly and get more details. Her phone number is DI 4-0716.

Cost will be $3.10 for the bus. Money must be paid in advance. There will be no regular sign-up sheet at Hendershott's. The only registration will be by calling Margaret.
