President-Elect Barack Obama has called for National Service Day. Let’s give back to the community. We will be doing trail maintenance at Santa Theresa County Park in Santa Clara County. There are tools for up to 100 people; there is ample space for volunteers. It is Martin Luther King Day, so I suspect some of you won’t be working. We encourage you to put in a hard day’s work to remind yourself of why you went to college. Leader: Jeff Fisher jeff_fisher_5252@sbcglobal.net. Cell: 650-207-9632, Home: 408-879-9892. Best way to contact me is by e-mail.

The Loma Prieta Chapter Backpacking and Peak Climbing Sections are again sponsoring a 3-day course in winter snow camping. There is a one day dry (class) session and a 2-day weekend outing to put in to practice all those principles.

This will be an easy winter over-night - a good beginner trip. Sat. we will meet at Badger Pass ski area at 8:30 on Sat. morning. We will head out toward Ostrander Lake and go about five mile before setting camp. After setting up camp we will explore the area and look for good views. Sunday morning we will make an early start which in winter probably won't be that early and go to Ostrander Lake, climb to a high point and return to camp and cars before 4:00. This trip can be done on snowshoes or skis.
