Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 10.16.08 AM

Come watch Valley Uprising with TMC-ers this Wednesday (the 18th) at 8pm in Barnum 104!

Facebook event here

The greatest untold story of American counterculture is that of the Yosemite Valley rock climbers. For the past fifty years, Yosemite’s massive cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite. Starring Yosemite legends Dean Potter, Alex Honnold, Lynn Hill, “Chongo” Chuck, John Bachar, Jim Bridwell, Warren Harding, Yvon Chouinard, Royal Robbins and more…

‘This may be the best climbing film ever made.’
– Red Bull Magazine

‘A palpable journey that jumps off the screen…I wanted the illicit freedom to continue forever.’
– National Geographic Adventure

‘Spectacular and awe-inspiring… just like Yosemite itself.’
– John Horn/The Frame

Show up, watch the movie, have fun. Even if you have never climbed or don’t care about climbing this movie is a great tale of adventure and dirtbagging.

There might even be some gear raffled…

 

Upcoming: Climbing not your cup of tea? We will also be showing the rad film G.N.A.R. with Tufts Ski and Snowboard Club on Tuesday Feb 24, at 8:30 pm in Braker 001. Stay tuned for more info.

Announcing Lily’s Fund for Adventure

lily

A year ago, we lost our dear friend and former TMC president, Lily Glidden. Lily’s zeal for outdoor exploration was infectious: she inspired the same adventurousness in everyone around her. To continue this, we’re creating Lily’s Fund for Adventure: a grant through TMC to partially fund imaginative trips, in order to make them financially attainable. Think bigger than a weekend in the Whites: biking across Iceland, or climbing and rafting through the Tetons, or thru-hiking from the Loj to Canada. We want you to push your boundaries.

Read more about Lily and the fund here.

To make this fund a reality, we need to raise $30,000. That’s the minimum to establish an endowed fund—but once it’s raised, the fund can run in perpetuity off the annual return from the endowment, without needing more donations.

Please consider donating whatever you can, and spread the word. To stay updated, sign up here.

CARETAKER SIGN-UPS!

are online. Because the world is conspiring against us.

http://goo.gl/forms/zBZvcJQlqO

Remember, caretaking is a responsibility. This form is easy and quick to fill out, but you still need to be at the Loj in person if you sign up! The Loj Director will email you with a confirmation of your dates.

Only sign up if you’re caretaker certified! If you want to get certified, contact the Loj Director.

Looking for Spring 2015 Group Reservations?

THAT WAS SO FAST SO MANY GROUPS!

Unfortunately, Spring 2015 is totally booked for groups. Definitely email the Loj Director with your first choice of dates, and she’ll put you on the waitlist.

The Loj is OPEN this January!

But SIGN UP FIRST since there are 82375928 people who want to go outside.

The Loj has been EXTREMELY CROWDED over past breaks, so we have advance signups for spots in bunks this year.

    • You are only guaranteed a place to sleep at the Loj if you are one of the first 46 to sign up for each day.
    • We don’t like limiting Loj access either, but everybody loves loj too much. Violating fire codes is unsafe (and uncomfortable).

After you sign up in the excel sheet, please PREPAY FOR YOUR LOJ STAY. Please pay for the maximum number of days you think you will stay at the Loj (yay for newly discounted TMC-member-food-eating-over-3-night-staying Loj rates). Refunds are easy to complete in the event that you change your mind and end your Loj stay early.

In case you missed the 3 links above, this is the google sheet you should use to sign up. Contact the Loj Director with further questions.
