Minutes 10/27/13

The meeting started with a radical departure from orthodoxy, but alas so are the requirements of democracy- tired, broken, but needed.

E-room worker elections

E-room workers stood and announced their intent and the nature of it

they stood and spoke as follows

Nate Diplock (aka ‘waxer’)

“i want to get more involved in outing club” He loves skiing, loves waxing boards, and adjusting trash bins. I also heard that Nate has special fondness for the Norwegian delicacy, Rakfisk, or fermented whitefish. I don’t know if this true, but it is definitely a circulating rumor and it is my job to cast aside the hotel room blinds and let the scalding mid morning sun in.

JJ

“Get more involved learn more about gear JJ ‘survived’ the van ride to k-tad. He is a concert pianist and enjoys re-reading the lesser known works of James Gurney

Alex

Alex is ‘Interested in working in the e-room’ Alex was also in ‘the van’ to k-tad. Alex has some skills with bikes and skis and wants to know more about other stuff.

Ian

Ian volunteered because josh strong armed him. I was there that night at New Vale, #messed up # strongarm. Ian loves the outdoors

kate mcnally (aka Purell)

Kate “expresses interest in working in the E-room” Kate likes cleaning things that are dirty and carrying stuff and putting things in specific places. Her cleaning ability has yet to be verified

https://www.facebook.com/Steezy.Matt.Original.Gear

KEVIN DANg- multi pitch, miscommunications, gear needed to be retriveived, waiting, waiting, hike down barefoot through the night, slope, get to cliff area, colin leads the charge, “don’t follow me” they were barefoot and walking, the moon was out. it was an “ok story” and

DALY- in south carolina and they saw big lizards, they saw that they big lizards were part of a family of alligators, she saw a seven foot alligator, commodo dragon dissapointment

Bryan “shit knee” lehyr had a skateboard in Atlanta GA, skated in terminals, dodging heads in terminal, successful skate, arrives in Portland, goes through the DO NOT STOP door, in confidence (and a lack of Ollie technique) lies hubris, Bryan “purgatory” leyhr hit the metal strip and eats it, “elbow still is sore,” Sore elbows =swellbow. Sirens start going off, the unmentionable one is on the floor, He grabs skateboards and runs, epic story from a despicable, tree fondling, good for nothing.

ALEX= wants to tell advance story, he was goin to say it in a dance, but a BOC meeting is an oratory equivalent, alex has a brother, bryan “worst role model possible” Lehyr was Alex’s brother’s camp counseler, brother is 13 years old. Alex and bro, did the pemigawassit loop. 4 days INTENSE. lincoln woods trail=closed, so they forded a river and got a late start, alex “king of non-linearity” insert a last name and bro get into the mountains and get on to BOND CLIFF, it starts raining, but the little BRO loved it, its dark because of the rain, alex nervous with the heavy burden of leadership, terrified he will mess up, terrified he will let his brother down, terrified that he, and his brother will fail, end up bruised, bloody, decomposing at the bottom of some unnamed slide in a bastard corner of the presidential.. They survived=the borther liked it, got stoked on the view!

LATER
