WE ARE GOING TO THE SEATTLE WORLDS FAIR

At this writing, the "experiment" worked fine, twenty five have signed during the month of February. The round trip fare by Greyhound will be $10.70, but as Seattle is pretty well sold out for the summer, the motels will not be known until later. Another item is the leaving time and place. WE WILL MEET AT 19th & PATTERSON (SOUTH EUGENE HI PARKING LOT) FRIDAY MAY 18 AT 6 P.M.

Leaving at six, driving to the motels, that will give us all day Saturday May 19 at the Fair. Another night at the motels, leaving for home around noon Sunday May 28.

Ray Sims, Leader

SUMMER CAMP NEWS

The Committee has decided to select a site within the Glacier Peak Wilderness area on the west side of the Cascades in northern Washington. This selection will need confirmation as soon as we can get there and scout the area we have in mind.

We plan another drive-in camp this year. If such a site isn't feasible here we have two other alternates in Washington. Which ever site we end up with, we will have as much to offer as we possible can.

As you know, the dates will be August 5 through August 18, 1962. Costs have been increased slightly at the suggestion of the Board of Directors. They will be as follows:

Adults and Teeners over 12 years:

Two weeks - - - - - -$42.50
One week - - - - - - 23.75
Per day - - - - - - - 4.20

Children 12 years and under:

Two weeks - - - - -$24.00
One week - - - - - - 13.50
Per day - - - - - - 2.40

Non-member adults will pay $5.00 more for two weeks, $3.00 more for one week, and 40¢ more on daily rate.

Watch the bulletin board at Gilber's for coming information; also future bulletins.

ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE announces a picture night for March 3 at the club house. (However, before this bulletin was printed this program was changed to meet at the Ted Johannis residence at 3524 High St., the snow being plentiful and parking area muddy at the club house.) Potluck Dinner will be March 17, and Bernice Lehrman will show pictures of Europe on March 31.
