Exec Updates from TMC!

Exciting things are happening for TMC right now:

1. Christa Ricker is our new TMC advisor, starting next week! She will be working out of the OCL and overseeing Orientation and Pre-orientation programs as well.

+ Christa is a NH native.  She began studying Outdoor Education as an undergraduate at UNH and is currently one semester away from a masters degree.  Her main focus of study is on outdoor orientation programs.  She has spent the last three summers working with Tufts Wilderness Orientation and prior to that was a wilderness therapy guide in Maine.  Her favorite backcountry activities are winter camping, bouldering, and all types of skiing. Christa loves to travel and is hoping to reach her goal of having traveled to thirty countries by the time she is thirty (5 countries and 15 months left to go).  She is a huge fan of her cat, Dyno, and also loves baking and watching old episodes of The West Wing.

+ TMC members will maintain our current projects, but Christa will be able to help us work more efficiently and take on new projects.

+ For example, in the future we hope to consistently offer trips over breaks, access to formal skills training, and listings for jobs in the outdoors.

2. We are having an Open Board meeting in Eaton 333 Sunday, March 8 at 7:30pm!

+ All members are invited to attend!

+ Current board members will give general updates about what they’re been up to.

+ We will review our constitution and invite members to give feedback as we re-write it. We will include a discussion about the role of our advisor.

+ General discussion about TMC projects and activities. If you have a topic you would like to cover, email me and I will add it to the agenda.

3. Starting after the open board meeting, minutes from board meetings will be posted here. If you want to stay updated on Exec Board activities, feel free to review minutes and give us feedback about goings on in the club.

Go Outside,

Charlotte

TMC Movie Nights: Valley Uprising and G.N.A.R.

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…

https://vimeo.com/ondemand/valleyuprising/101316261

‘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.

Trailer here: https://vimeo.com/17787406

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.
