...REFER TO YOUR SCHEDULE FOR FULL DETAILS
VOL. XIV OBSIDIANS, INC. - P. O. Box 322 - EUGENE, OREGON JULY-AUGUST 1954 NO. 7
We want to pay tribute this month to our Trips and Climbing Committees who do such a swell job of planning our fun-packed and interesting Summer events. And also honor our Summer Outing Committee who works so hard engineering and carrying out the "highlite" of the Obsidian Summer -- our Camp. This year, Thelma Watson guides the trips; Plaisted and Harris push the climbers; the Sebrings Summer our Camp. In addition to our mountain of thanks to these folks, goes our appreciation to all who act as leaders and are so important in making the climbs and hikes a success. In this issue you will find the reports of recent events, with the hope that those who couldn't attend to enjoy the comradeship of the trail, will find enjoyment in reading about their friends.
HEY, SUMMER CAMPERS!
Obsidian Summer Campers are full of anticipation of a really humdinger of an outing at Eden Park on Mt. Hood. The hard-working Committee is in great need of your deposit and fee. The camp funds are carefully accounted for separately from club funds, and there is considerable expense in pre-camp planning. HELP!
Any folks wanting to make a weekend visit to Camp, should sign up immediately. You want to eat dontcha?
And DON'T FORGET to prepare for the Camp Fire Entertainment and Skits.
And if you are planning on the ascent of Mt. Hood, be sure to arrange for crampons. The club does have several ice axes for climbers, but if the party is large there may not be enough to go around. Any equipment of this nature can be obtained at Trotter's Alpine Shop, 258 E. 16th.
Have You Made Your Pledge .....
for the Obsidian Clubhouse?
If not, please do so as soon as you find it possible. We need every dollar before we can attempt to build our long-needed, long-dreamed-of Clubhouse.
And if you have made your pledge, the committee will appreciate your prompt monthly payments. See or mail to Louis Waldorf or Ray Sims.
It has been very gratifying to see the dollars come in from near and far, many contributions being made by non-members. Waldorf reports that Building Fund as of July 8th totalled $2,355.00 -- just over $1,100.00 of this amount paid in-cash,
LET'S GO! F.W.O.C. CONVENTION SEPT. 4-5-6
The 23rd Annual F.W.O.C. Convention is being held this year at Nesika Lodge, home of Trails Club of Ore. on Larch Mountain.
There will be several interesting sessions to attend as well as numerous scheduled hikes in this beautiful area overlooking the Columbia Gorge.
F.W.O.C. President Wayburn advises many problems are on this year's agenda, and it will be the duty of member clubs to assist in the solution of these many conservation issues.
Frank Sipe is the official Obsidian delegate but all Obsidian members are urged to be at the convention. Reservations should be made as soon as possible. Applications may be secured at Hendershott's or from Ray Cavagnaro. Just $10.00 covers the cost of meals and lodging for the three days, and for your holiday we can assure you it will be interesting, informative and it will be FUN. Registration closes "August 15th."
