DAVE ZEVENBERGEN has had printed up a form to be filled in by leaders of any trail conditions that are in need of maintenance. These to be sent to Trips Committee Chairman when mailing in their trips reports and Dave will forward to the various Forest Rangers involved. The Forest Service has indicated to us that this will save them the necessary time to go over all the trails themselves and will be a big saving to them in both time and money.

FROM ED. JOHANN, P.O.Box 19171, Portland Oregon 97219---

The Obsidians,

Hi. I am writing to ask your Club, and any members of your Club to please send me any "info" they may come across during the year that has anything to do with trail trips, trail conditions snowfoot travel and "whats Happening" type stuff. I need this input of "info" for the Signpost Publications.

Thank you.


"Thanks, Bob Medill, for all the publicity. Your paper proved to be the entertainment in my corner at our last Board meeting - real refreshing & thanks for the exercise we got from laughing".

The above in response to the comment made in the January Obsidian re all the ladies on their Board.
