Club meetings are held to discuss business and to socialize with area climbers over pizza and REFRESHMENT on the 2nd Wednesday of each month unless otherwise noted. Meetings start at 7:30PM with the social gathering followed by business at 8:00. After the business section is concluded we are ussually treated to a slide show and trip report presented by one of our members.
Come and meet climbers!
Below is our generic agend. Please see the?club calendar?to see the detailed agenda for the month you are interested in.
1930 - 2000:? Pizza, drinks, and commiserating (bull-shitting) 2000 - 2050:? Business Meeting
Welcome / Opening (Chair)
Old Business - Previous meeting minutes (Secretary) - Membership Update? (Secretary) - Review on-going projects and deadlines (Vice-Chair)
The following motions were made and appropriately seconded and will be voted on at the OCT meeting:
Lora P made the motion for the MS to buy a trad rack for aspiring leaders to check and use (ie.??a set of nuts/hexes, cams, alon with some biners and slings.
?We can also start a New forum on the club's website.
Dave R made the motion and agreed to lead the production of the Mountaineering Section?s next climbing guide project.??The project will document unpublished traditional climbing areas in the DC-Metro area (ie.??the newly re-discovered climbing areas: Long Mountain, Little Stonyman Cliffs, Buzzard Rocks, and the lower slabs area of Old Rag)
Katahdin?- The folks at BSP will be opening up the reservation requests the first business day in Nov. which is only 5 weeks away. To get your first choice you definitely want your request to be there at that time. It would be ideal if a Katahdin veteran (John O.???) would step up to take on this task. http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/camping/wintercamping.html
Daks Big House?- Last year was fun to have 15 of us together but the house wasn't ideal. A bigger common area would be great, a week would have been not much more money, lots of things to think about. Last year??just signed the lease after I got committments ($ in fist) from most?of the folks. For someone to be comfortable doing this you have to have early committments from folks who want to go. If anyone wants to tackle this one that would be great as once again the earlier you get going the more likely you can get a time frame that works.
?Please provide your thoughts on the motions via the listserve and then definitely come out and have your say at the OCT meeting where we'll decide.
New Business - Monthly Financial Report (Treasurer) - Highlight results of monthly PATC Mtg (as appropriate)? (Chair) - Call for any new motions from the membership? (Chair) - Closing (Chair);
