BOC Minutes 9/28/16
Here’s the minutes for this week. Enjoy.
PS: Boogie boards are in. Go shred them. But not if you were a h8r (tess) (miles)
The Earth is a scorched wasteland. 782 zillion years of darkness pass. All that remains of humankind are traces of outdoorsy DNA left in the glassed soil of the library quad. Finally, the second coming occurred. A flash was seen in the sky, something descending from the atmosphere. A spacecraft shaped like a three year old boy touches down. A hatch opens from the seat of his pants. Kssshhhhhhhh — steam erupts from the hatch. Slowly, a tall figure silhouetted by angelic light appears. Emerging from the toddler-like spacecraft, the figure’s identity becomes apparent. It is he. Our Lord and Saviour. The divine features –broad shoulders, shining silver back, prominent forehead– of Harambe are now plain to see.
The single-celled BOCers are in absolute, triumphant awe. Standing before them is the only being in the universe who can return order to their decimated world. The Lord then called upon his divine angels, who appear to us as a cross between a male toddler and a chimpanzee, to amalgamate the cells of the long dead BOCers into beings of his form. The winged chimpkids worked efficiently. Soon a band of crunchy gorillas stood before him. ‘What can we humble gorillas do to please you, O great Lord?’
‘Thou shall meet!’
Meeting was called to order at 6:34
We did names! Nathan D Plock finally found it worthwhile to actually get to know everyone.
IT WAS NOEL’S BDAY two (one?) days ago. We sang. Yes.
— Kilometers: We need unpaid laborers to do back breaking work in the E Room. Just kidding, e room work is super fun. Come as much as you can and help check out gear. Great way to get to know people, have fun, play stump, and learn rad skills. 4-5 Monday Wednesday Friday. “I swear it’s not a sweat shop” -Kilometers. “If you come a lot of times it’s a work trip” -Soccer.

— Auj: Katahdin Friday is leaving at 4, Saturday leaving at 1. It’s important to be committed to your trip. Don’t not send it.
Then the Lord departed. He had shit to do. He flew off in his toddlership. While on the ground, the toddlership appears to be sitting. As it takes off it extends its legs and arms backwards, to create the most streamlined form possible. So the gorillas were taught to construct their own craft, and so they did, and were able to go on trips.
— Fosia: Oct 9! Trail maintenance. Guaranteed blazing. In nature. So much blazing. All the way.
— zoccer sach: Come to Nova Scotia over oct break. Surf, hike, live, breathe, die. Food will be free!

— Andy: Sent out so many surfing trip emails. Only one ‘maybe’ responded. Jin, his aesoper, went full turncloak jon snow style and signed up for Eli’s trip instead. Hah.
— Kilometers: I’m a fucking cheapskate so I bought used trail runners. I’m so smart blah blah. Bought some more on ebay stolen from a Chinese factory. Got put on a communist watch list. Chinese hit squad is waiting for him at the package center, pretending to be the package center workers. Kilometers is not fooled. He puts on some of those glasses with a nose and mustache. Fools the socialist commy reds. Retrieves package. It’s actually a brick of weed. He does three whole marijuanas in the EMS car. (not actually).

— Chris: highlining the d. Highline snaps. Falls to his death. Comes back to life just to tell us this story. Thanks chris.
At the close of the seventh day, the gorillas were left feeling a lack of direction. What were they to do without His guidance? The gorilla once known as Maddy spoke to the gorillas. ‘I got a text from Harambe. You all must follow me to Mount David.’ The wayfarers made their way to the sacred mountain. Maddy bade the gorillas chill at the base. She alone could ascend the hill to receive the word of her Master. So she did, and reached the summit quickly due to the small size of Mount David. Only there was the AT&T coverage good enough for Maddy to receive the Ten Texts from Harambe.
Maddy descended the divine mountain of David. She had received the wisdom of the Master and it was now time to pass on His guidance to her companions. To be continued.
