Weekend hikes and FLAMING FLAMINGO!




BOARD MEETINGS
Come out to weekly MMC meetings! See what's happening at board meetings. All are welcome, even if you've never been to a meeting. Learn about what we're doing and contribute to planning some of our next events and trips! Bring ideas, friends, and your dinner and meet the rest of the MMC crew on Wednesday at 6pm in Ross basement seminar room B11!
FLAMING FLAMINGO
Saturday, May 10th 1-5pm at Lake Dunmore
Join us for our symbolic rejection of suburbia and the MMC's epic annual spring event! Out at Lake Dunmore (yes, there will be swimming for the most adventurous of the bunch) we will cookout with burgers and other delicious foods and play plenty of dope games, all culminating with the torching of the plastic flamingo. Meet at ADK at 1pm to snag a seat in the van (first-come, first-serve)! Or, for a two-wheeled adventure, show up at ADK at 12pm and ride in our sweet Bike Brigade! We'll ride to Lake Dunmore (about 12 miles) at a relaxed pace, and everyone is welcome! 
SUNRISE HIKE WITH TORY & AZALIE
Wednesday, May 7th
Come along on this pre-dawn hike for spectacular views of first light over Vermont. After a waking up thrillingly early (the sun comes up at 5:37 a.m!), we'll head to nearby Middlebury Gap in the Green Mountains. From there we'll take a short hike to a sweet spot where we can witness the familiar landscape transformed by sunrise magic. We'll be back on campus in time for 9:05 classes (probably even before 8:00), and we guarantee a great day after such a glorious start. Sign up here!
DIX OVERNIGHT WITH SEAN & PARKER
Friday & Saturday, May 9th-10th
Looking to fit in one more MMC trip this spring? Come climb Dix in the 'Daks. We'll leave campus at 2:00, hike a few miles, and then make camp on Friday. Come morning we'll climb the high and remote Dix Mountain, and be back on campus by dinnertime. Expect good views, a great hike, and gourmet camp cooking. Saturday will be a full day of hiking on a difficult trail, so some backpacking experience is preferred. Sign up here!
FALLS OF LANA WITH ANGIE & MILLER
Friday, May 9th
Join us for a classic trip to the majestic Falls of Lana and beautiful Lake Dunmore (if the weather is nice)! If you haven't been here yet you're missing out and it never gets old if you have! We'll leave campus at 2pm, hang out for a couple hours, and be back in time for dinner! No experience necessary. Sign up here!
(EPIC) GREAT RANGE TRAVERSE WITH PAUL & CLIFF
Friday & Saturday, May 9th-10th
*This is a long, challenging hike for experienced hikers onlySenior guides Cliff and Paul are going big before they go home. Join them on the last weekend of the school year for a trip over the Great Range of the Adirondacks. We will leave at 2pm on Friday and hike 3.1mi to the William Howard shelter.
