Holiday Mixer, part 2

Hey, hey, hey!

Our end-of-the-semester snowshoe outing is happening this coming Friday, Dec. 16, and we hope lots of you can make it.  It'll be wonderful to get outside and unwind from finals!

Here are the details:
  • Meet on campus at 1:00pm in the parking lot closest to the ORC (to accommodate those who need to rent snowshoes, gaiters, etc.).
  • Carpool up to Hyalite.
  • Convene at Blackmore Pavilion; do an easy snowshoe hike (~3 miles) around the lower Blackmore loop. Those who want a shorter hike can turn around prior to the 1.5 mile mark.  (Here's a downloadable trail map, if you want to see where we're going.)
  • Reconvene at the pavilion around 2:30-3:00ish.
  • Drink hot chocolate or apple cider, try to stay warm by the fire, chat.
  • Depart Hyalite by 4:00 (or sooner, if people would prefer), be back on campus before dark.

In order to make sure that we have enough refreshments for everyone -- while not being stuck with 3 gallons of leftover drinks -- please click here to place your advance drink orders.

The poll is the same for both the blog and the listserv, so you only need to vote once  :-)

If you have questions, are running late, need to get in touch for another reason, you can call my cell (my number is in the email I sent out on 12/13).
Let's see how fried everyone's brains are at this point in the year.  Here's a quick quiz:

a. We won't be wearing as many clothes.
b. There will be a lot more men there.
c.  Hyalite Reservoir is a lot deeper than this.
d.  We won't need rescue personnel or an audience.
e.  This is actually what springs to mind when I imagine an outing with the WFC.

This is much more like it, eh?
