Meeting Minutes 11/19

Attention Attention
Tonight’s edition of Outing Club has some very new, very important, and very exciting information. So put on your reading glasses, get comfortable, and get stoked! 
Up n’coming 
Outing Club Trail Crew/committee elections! (These details are also on the Facebook page)
-so for those of you who weren’t at the meeting outing club used to be really involved in trail maintenance and building. There are actually a couple trails named after the club
-this part of the club has since died out but we are bringing it back with the Rebirth of the PSOC trail Crew 
The crew will work on trail maintenance, trail building, machetes, and much much more
-In order for this to work a trail committee will be made with 3 leaders:
-outreach captain (talk to parks, get permits, find out what needs to be done)
-logistics coordinator (Get gear, deal with reimbursements, make sure everything is good to go)
-communications (recruit new members, update the club on whats going on, fill out clubsports paperwork)
-Being a part of the committee is an awesome way to get involved with the club, the local community, work closely with the officers, and to be a a part of the start of a new part of PSOC history
-If you are interested in being on the committee email Aaron ( with your name and the position you would like to run for. 
-elections for these positions will be held on December 3rd

-possibly the morning the week before finals
-the perfect way to wake up and forget about the stress of impending finals
