VOCene #34, Dec. 20 2016

Ye Olde VOC:
A weekly recollection of the past of the club.

Sphinx Camp was an annual tradition within the VOC for many years. Groups ranging from 30-70 people would head up for a few weeks of skiing around Sphinx Bay with helicopter food drops.
Quote of the Week:

"Barring love and war, few enterprises are undertaken with such abandon, or by such diverse individuals, or with so paradoxical a mixture of appetite and altruism, as that group of avocations known as outdoor recreation."
— Aldo Leopold
