Trips and More from Mountain Club!

Coming from MMC this week!

MOUNTAIN CLUB MEETINGS! Wednesdays 6pm LaForce 121
This week we'll be ramping up to tackle the production of the annual tastefully nude calendars (see below), discussing our upcoming elections (Nov 20), and reminscing in the badassery that was MountainFilm on Tour on Sunday.  If you have been waiting to become more involved with MMC, this is the meeting to come to!  All board positions are open for re-election, see below for descriptions.  Hope to see you there! 

Long Trail Overnight with Kiana, Jess, and Fabi: Friday 11/15 - Saturday 11/16
Ready for a winter adventure? Want to sip on hot chocolate while curling up in your sleeping bag? Join us for a chill hike on the Long Trail this weekend! Highlights will include a sweet ridge trail with summits of Gillespie Peak and Cape Lookoff Mountain. We'll leave at 1:30pm on Friday and be back in time for dinner on Saturday! All hikers welcome.  Sign-up HERE
Way of Life Screening
On Friday, November 22, The Middlebury College Snow Bowl Ski Patrol is sponsoring a screening of
Teton Gravity Research's 2013 film, Way of Life in BiHall 216.  Time TBA: stay tuned for next week's email

They'll be raffling off some sick swag (including a Threesome Pass to both Sugarbush mountains and Mad River!!!!)  after the screening, so mark your calendars and make sure to get a raffle ticket or two (when else will you have a chance to ski at Sugarbush and Mad River for a grand total of $3???)
The Annual MMC Tastefully Nude Calendar is accepting photos!!!
Does being on top of a peak, in a river, shredding pow, sending rock, riding horses, watching the sunset, frolicking in the fall leaves, or biking around campus just make you want to be NAKED??? Well, this time, TAKE A PICTURE!  Please mind the title "Tastefully Nude"--butts are alright....but it's time to get creative with your coverage.  Please send pictures to ASAP!! We want to get these calendars out in J-Term!!
