Fall Gear Hours

Hey TMC, welcome back to campus!

  • The gear hours this fall are Tuesdays 5:15 – 6pm, and Thursdays 2pm – 4pm; as always, if those hours don’t work, email gear@tuftsmountainclub.org to find a time!
  • Gear hours are great for checking out micro spikes, hiking boots, tents, and all other gear that TMC has to office- swing by 17 Chetwynd Rd to see everything, which is all free to rent with a TMC membership!
  • Summer gear orders are in, so swing by and pick them up. There will be a fall microspike order later in the year as well
  • Keep an eye out for informational events with your favorite technical directors in the upcoming weeks

Summer Gear Hours

Hi TMC!

Gear director will be in the gear room for the morning of May 11th if you have last-minute gear to return. Because I won’t be on campus during most weekdays and several weekends, there will be NO regular gear hours this summer; feel free to message me about a specific day, but I can’t guarantee access.

For those of you who ordered gear, it will be available this fall. Have a great summer!

Summer Loj and Van Policy

If you are a certified caretaker, you CAN open the Loj during the summer. If you plan to do so, there are some very important steps so we can make sure everything stays good and safe!

  • If you are staying at the loj you MUST MUST MUST fill out this spreadsheet. This is non-negiotable and is essential to the Loj remaining open during summers (https://docs.google.com/…/10WiZxYNKggr8W_zcqQWTB5sPRu…/edit…)
  • The Loj is available for use this summer to everyone but only if a caretaker has come and opened it (although caretakers can go on trips during the day)
  • If you plan on opening up the Loj, post in the Facebook group/Trips board so that others know — especially if you have other car spots that other TMCers could hop in on!
  • No food will be provided at the Loj over the summer
  • There is no Loj fee over the summer, but we ask you to donate what you can if you are using Loj resources over the summer. Anything you give will go to making the Loj and TMC a better place!
  • The same Loj rules as always still apply. Please be respectful of the space and others and keep in mind that safety is still super important during the summer.

If you have any questions about the Loj please contact (Before June 22) Loj Mom, Josh Cohen or (Post June 22) Events Director Nola Jenkins !!!  

Happy Summer Lojing

 

Van Policy 

Dr. Doom is open for use over the summer for any club-related activity. If you hope to use the van, make sure to post a trip on the trips board so that others can join in.

The keys to Dr. Doom will be held in Christa’s office over the summer, on the top floor of the campus center in room 208. Stop by during regular business hours to pick them up.

As a friendly reminder, club activities include trips to Metro Rock, hikes, climbs, jaunts, and bike rides in the outdoors. Club activities do not include personal grocery trips or rides to Logan! Srry!

Please contact Josh Cohen aka Lojmom if you have any questions about summer Loj :)

Changed Gear Hours- Spring Semester

Hello TMC!

Due to increased demand for different gear hours, the new hours for spring semester will be:
Thursday 5:30 – 6:30
Monday 6-6:30
Hopefully this will not only allow members not on campus to access the gear, but also create a time for gear return (Monday) before it needs to go back out again. These hours will go into effect beginning this Thursday; if you’ve contacted me about coming at the old hours, I will be in touch to reschedule.
As always, contact gear@tuftsmountainclub.org for more questions/hours.

TMC Elections, Prom and Pass the Torch Signups!

Come cast your votes for the new TMC Exec Board!

This year’s theme (along with every other year’s theme) is: Prom! Or as the youths like to call this exciting display of democracy, “Prom-lections!”

Even if you aren’t running for board, come support your fellow TMCers and help pick the people that’ll be running your favorite club for the next 12 months :)

Please note, you will only be able to vote using our electronic voting system if you are a current TMC member. You can check your membership status here, or become a member here.

ALSO! We’ll be doing signups for Pass the Torch Weekend (AKA Caretaker Training Weekend) at the end of elections. So definitely plan on coming if you want to sign up for Pass the Torch, which will be the first weekend back after Winter Break (January 20-22). Definitely try to go if you can, It’s a ton of fun!

Finally, if you are running for board, make sure you fill out this form BEFORE Thanksgiving day.


If you have any questions about running for board or what positions are available, check this out.

I highly encourage anyone that is passionate about TMC to consider running! Most positions require zero prior experience or qualifications.

See y’all at prom-lections!
