VOL. 30 EUGENE, OREGON NO. 2

NOVEMBER, 1969

I mark the summer's swift decline;
The springing sward its grave-clothes weaves.
Oh, could I catch the sounds remote!
Could I but tell to human ear
The strains which on the breezes float
And sing the requiem of the dying year;

HATS OFF

- to these folks who attained the 3 Peaks Award in '69.

We are told by Ron Nunemaker that 275 climbers took part in 29 climbs this year. Wow!

Just because the trip schedule is over, don't think for a moment we have hibernated - no-sir-ee!

Keep your eye peeled for the " SNOWBUNNIE REPORT'} this winter!

The Annual Xmas Tree Hunt on Mike Stahl's tree farm near Cresswell will be held Sunday, Dec. 14.

Mike will be glad to cut a tree the size needed by anyone unable to cut their own, and will have it at his house to be picked up. However, he needs 'your order' a few days in advance, so call him in plenty of time. There will be a small charge for each tree.

(Please pay at "branch" office.)

READERS: Did you know that if you want pertinent road or trail info about any trips or climbs since goodness knows when, you can have our librarian Edith Bridgeman find it for you or tell you where you can find it?

Bob Medill recently celebrated his 600th - no, he turned over his 600th Betty Crocker coupon to the Princesses.

CLIMB LEADERS.

Want to know how to make your Reports more interesting for the
reading interest of the members?

Keep your reports short (200 words) and to the point. Keep mileage details and road info separate from the main report.

The gory details of the climb or hike is what they want to read.

HEY, YOU LEADERS! PAY ATTENTION!

Be Sure to get your reports in by the last day of each month, to insure that your report is current news. Who wants to read
stale news?! Heavens-to-Betsy!
