[mmc-l] Welcome back from MMC!


Hey gang!!  Good to have everyone back, including our dear guides and board members who were abroad!

First things first, our FIRST MEETING OF THE YEAR will be Wednesday the 19th in LaForce 121 at 6pm!!!

We have some important logistical things on the menu that we wanted to get out before our first meeting:

1) Defensive Driving class                                                                                                               

Still searching for that 7 or 15 passenger van license to become an offical MMC guide?  Now's your chance!  September 20th in Kenyon Lounge 5-7 pm (this is one of the more workable times this class has ever been offered, so take advantage!)

2) Would you like to work in the GEAR ROOM??

The job application to work as a gear manager is now up on the SEO website.  All you need to do is type go/seo, click on ON CAMPUS JOBS, then FIND JOBS on the left side of the website, and search "gear."  The official title is MOP Equipment Manager.


If you already have a 15-passenger van license, and you would be willing to drop OINK trips off on the morning of Saturday the 15th (leaving Midd at 7:30am from Ross dining hall) and pick them up the afternoon of Sunday September 16th (times vary depending on trip), please email OINK@middlebury.edu with a copy of your college AND STATE license.  We need to give vehicle rentals a copy of both.  Unfortunately we can't pay you in green dollar bills, but we can shower you with love and cookies and trail mix!  We need four drivers total!

4) TAM Trek Sun, Sept 23, 9:30-noon
Come on out and play on our most local and beloved trail, the Trail Around Middlebury! The event benefits the Middlebury Area Land Trust, which maintains the TAM; there will be food and prizes woohoo! We'll be doing the trek in teams of 4-6, so email Emma (eloizeaux@middlebury.edu) to get on a team or email with a full team of your friends. Flair required.

Thanks and happy trails!
