Peak Weekend 2014

A message from your Peak Weekend Coordinators 2014:

If you weren’t previously aware, don’t know what Peak Weekend is, or are just generally confused you should probably come to our GIM on Wednesday at 9 PM in Braker 001 where we will explain those very things and more!

But just to whet your appetite for peakend info here’s a brief spiel:

Peak Weekend is one of TMC’s largest annual events. Over the course of Columbus Day weekend, we try to put someone from Tufts atop all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4000+ foot peaks. If  hiking, mountains, woods, rocks, friends, the loj, stars, or gorgeous views at all interest you than you should sign up and come to the Loj between Oct. 11-13 and hike a peak. Only prereqs are the ability to walk and liking fun. Signups will be posted here following the GIM.

GIM Wednesday at 9. Braker 001. Come.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at peakweekend@gmail.com.

Loj closed for Newcomers this weekend

FYI, the Loj is closed 9/19-9/21 except for those participating in Newcomers’ Weekend.

But it’s open to everyone every weekend after that until the next big weekend, Peak Weekend! Contact the caretakers and look for a ride if you want to go up.

By the way, if you don’t go to Newcomers, fear not at all! You can go to the Loj anytime you want. You can still be a TMC member and do everything everyone else does! (Smaller weekends at the Loj are more fun anyway.)

This Season's Ice from Ian MacLellan

If you’ve got that summertime sadness and yearn for the better days of driving snow and screaming barfies, reminisce with TMC alum Ian MacLellan’s photos of this season’s ice climbing in New England, and get stoked for even more trips next year (plus a lot of brand-new gear)!

Summertime!

Around Tufts this summer and plan on venturing into the wild wild outside of your home/cubicle/van? TMC is still here, but works a little differently:

  • We email each other over the summer elist
  • The Loj has no official caretakers, thus no food. Contact the Loj Director if you’re a caretaker and want to open the Loj.
  • Vans may be used for TMC purposes, but you pay for gas. Reserve them as usual, then email the summer elist to invite others / coordinate getting the keys.
  • MetroRock and CRG discounts apply for the summer as well!

Mountain Day

Moontain Day

Mountain Day

Hey you, listen here!
Now approaches the best day of the year.
Mountain Day, as some call it,
is no time to sit.
With the air smelling like spring,
staying inside is not an easy thing.
It’s time to celebrate being outside.
Maybe there will even be a slip ‘n slide.

So get ready for sleeping bag races
and smiles on your faces.
Human bouldering and food art
are only the start.
Ziplining with Zephyr
is going to be the coolest adventure ever.
Iris will teach you all to tie-dye,
making April 18th a great Fri-dye.
Look for us on the Prez Lawn from 11 to 2.

This day would not be complete without you there, too.
