04/14 Meeting Minutes

MSUOCers!
Congratulations to all those who participated in Campus to Coast–especially MICHAEL LOHR, our C2C coordinator! LOHRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
 
Thanks Clint for talking about volunteering/traveling around the world! Clint has been traveling/working/volunteering/WWOOFing around New Zealand this past year (with his girlfriend Monica).  Clint says: when you travel you have life-changing, unbelievable experiences.  WWOOFing is a lifestyle! So listen to him & do it! (Also, 1K could last you 4 months when you’re WWOOFing!)

04/07 Meeting Minutes

MSUOCers!
Thanks George for talking about Adventure Paddling & Whitewater Rafting! George Stockman has been paddling his whole life and at this week’s meeting he was kind enough to share some of his knowledge. For those who couldn’t make it (and those who’d like some last minute advice for Campus to Coast) the Powerpoint Presentation George made can be found here. Also, if you’re interested in whitewater rafting look out for our annual white water trip (during the fall semester)!
Sale at Moosejaw! This Wednesday & Thursday (4/9 & 4/10) bring your membership card into Moosejaw & get additional discounts.
Thank you Celina & Brian–BMFF was amazing!! :)
Also, thanks to those who helped clear the Red Cedar in preparation for Campus to Coast!
