MARCH 16 CASTLE POCK Catherine Jones will lead us on this favorite trip.


This is the Strategic Air Ground Environment installation which was set up to detect any enemy planes or rockets which might approach the coast of Northern California, Oregon, or the Southern Washington coast. The whole installation is in one high building which contains computers, radar, etc. for this type installation. The tour will be taken to all parts of the building and should be of great interest to all adults.

Because of the necessity of a list of all members of the tour to be sent ahead to Camp Adair and because we will be expected to arrive together at a given time, this will be a bus trip. The bus will leave Harris Hall at 1:00 p.m. sharp and should be back by 6:00 p.m. The charge is $2 per person which will cover fare and trip fee. The busses will take us right to the door, therefore, there will be no need for heavy clothing or rain gear. The whole trip will actually be inside this one building so any comfortable clothing and shoes should be OK. There is a Lunch room where food and drink may be purchased reasonably.

Because of the complexity of this installation it is not recommended for children Young adults would probably understand and find it interesting and worth while. We have been asked to limit the number to 50, therefore, the first 50 Obsidians who signed up at Gilberts will make the trip If we do not have 50 Obsidians sign up we can take others. Please do not sign up unless you intend to go as this list must be sent up several days ahead and we will be checked at the gate. Only those on the list will be admitted.

MARCH 31 RIBBON PARK TRAIL Margaret Markley is the leader and asks to be met at the City Park block at 9:00 a.m.
