Helen and Paul Weiser had a very enjoyable trip to the John Day to see flowers and country. Helen found five different Penstamines. They also watched carefully for Bob's recent footprints on the river.

Middle Sister Climb

A very enjoyable climb of the Middle Sister was had by twenty people on Sunday June 24th. The party assembled where the Green Lakes Trail and Soap Creek meet. We got up early and left camp at 4:40 A.M. We followed an old trail that leads towards Chambers Lakes up Diller Glacier and into the Southeast ridge. We split the party into two groups. The faster one Mark McLaughlin led to the top a little before 11:00. The rear guard arrived at 11:30. Had lunch and passed out summit certificates. We then went down the North ridge having to put three hand lines out for safety. We then dropped onto Hayden Glacier and down until we hit our trail going up. We arrived in camp about 3:00. Mark Sebring, who stayed in camp, had broken his arm. Margaret Wiese, Brian Gannon, Karen Meats Dorothy Towlerton, Charla Eubanks, Dick Bach, Bob Bayman, Chet Bayman, Barbara Moore, Bob and Don Lyon, Tom Massey, Kirk McLaughlin, Roger & Jon Chrysler, James Kemp, Edward Trione, Harlane Lefevre, Eugene Sebring, Leader and Mark McLaughlin, Asst. Leader.

Report From Entertainment Committee.

June was a profitable month for our club with two enjoyable and interesting events at the club-house. More than 70 members and guests came out to the summer camp rally June 2nd (and $13.75 was realized in "trip fees"). We consider this to be a proof of great interest in this camp.

Thirty-six members enjoyed the June 16th potluck Don Hunter showed slides from the Iron Mountain territory and some very interesting pictures from the Painted Hills State Park east of Prineville. It was decided to have a picnic at Bob Medill's place July 14,5:30 DST. in place of the potluck at the club-house.
