We’re trying to get trips out every weekend, so get planning! 

•For those without training, we’re planning something with Martin Crawford sometime in the next three weeks
•Ideally, the training we’d require/offer would be more comprehensive, but we’re working on that
•Aye! Everyone’s in favor! But still read it. And if you have comments/concerns/questions, just email Maggie
•A copy has been sent out to everyone who isn’t new, but Maggie’s sending it out again

•The only big change would be elections and terms (same as discussed last meeting)
•Liability: leaders aren’t at all liable
•Dan has a fever, sad.
•Last semester we had some serious issues with keeping track of gear (we’re still missing two camp stoves)- but that’s gonna change!
•Right now, the gear is in the senior apartments
•Kate’s trip checklist will have the entire process (check the spreadsheet for availability, email Dan a week in advance, find a time to connect and pick up, go have an epic time, return)
•When returning gear, clean it!!!! Please be respectful of Dan, his fellow gear peeps, and the rest of us! Gear won’t be accepted if it’s not clean
•OI will take care of broken gear, but if you lose it, you buy it
Logistics/How to Lead A Trip!
•Kate has been compiling a checklist with info dispersion, registration, waivers, gear, reserving vehicles, etc…
Tentative: March 6 – OI Retreat
•Friday night, go somewhere, chill and bond, eat, do some basic training
