The Japanese Alps
February 23, 1984
February 23rd was a nostalgic evening for some Obsidians and a novel
experience for others as they watched Jim Blanchard’s presentation
on the Japanese Alps at the potluck.
A show of hands revealed that a large number of people in the audience
had visited Japan themselves.
Jim’s experience as a travel agent became apparent as he embellished
his narrative with interesting tidbits about Japanese culture.
The result was a valuable mini-workshop on Japan.
87 people attended the potluck, and trip fees totalled $20.49.
