Recapping our busiest year ever! What's next??
We're proud to announce that 2013-2014 was the busiest year in Outing Club history! All said and done, we embarked on 46 trips, breaking our old record of 45 in 2011-2012 and easily surprassing last year's total of 35. With 202 unique participants and a combined total attendance of 467 (also new records), a whole bunch of Clarkies had fun getting to know each other on these 46 outings.
If that's not enough, a slew of new fall semester records were set this past year as well, including these:
Go Green... in the Kneller?
Due to anticipated wet conditions, Clark's Go Green on the Green Earth Day festival this Saturday, April 20th, has been moved to the Kneller Athletic Center. The Outing Club will be there with a Leave No Trace exhibit and trail map reading skillshare. Be sure to come by and check it out. (4/18/13)
Worcester #2 in Golden Snow Globe rankings
We've certainly had excellent snow conditions for our winter trips this year, and with good reason. Worcester finished the season as the #2 city in the country for total snowfall this season. This comes after having held the #1 spot for several weeks. Check it out at the Golden Snow Globe website. More snow? You never know. But we'll settle for springtime and sunshine! (4/5/13)
A new trail is born!
After more than 14 years of work, Worcester's East Side Trail is finally whole! You can now hike through the woods 3 1/2 miles from the Shores of Lake Quinsigamond on Worcester's eastern border right into the heart of the city on Shrewsbury Street at East Park. Read more on our special East Side Trail page. (9/27/11)
Exciting news for skiers
With support from members of Clark's former Ski and Snowboard Club, the Outing Club has officially expanded its repertoire to include downhill ski and snowboard trips in addition to our current cross country ski trips. Our budget has been increased to accommodate these activities, but we'll be looking for more skiers and snowboarders to help plan them. Watch for further announcements next fall. (5/15/11)
