On Saturday, August 11th, ABE GSA will be going on a canoeing trip near Delphi, IN (~25 minute drive). We will be spend 2 hours canoeing on the Tippecanoe River with a morning start time (sometime around 10-11am). We would need to leave campus roughly an hour before our start time to drive and go through a brief session with the canoe instructor.
GSA will be covering the canoeing cost for ABE Graduate students only, but if more than 20 students sign-up the cost will be $5 per student. For family/significant others, GSA will not cover the cost ($15/per canoe for adults; child cost vary with age) but they are free to join the group. Canoes spots will be first-come, first-serve, but there should be enough canoes available.
The new academic year is coming, as well as our ABE WelcomeBackPicnicwhich will be held onAug 30, 2018 at 5 PM at ADM ! All members of the ABE community are welcome to attend. A vegetarian option will be provided. Transportation to ADM will be provided.
Now, we are looking for ABE graduate student volunteers to help with setting up the event. Here are some the tasks we need assistance with:
Morning Set Up at 9am-10am [2-3 Volunteers]
Warming up meat and Veggies from 12:30 to 4pm [4-5 Volunteers]
Setting up the food (Soft drinks preparation, make sure food is ready) 3:00- 4:30 pm [2-5 Volunteers]
On Saturday, July 7th ABE GSA will be headed to Shades State Park (Waveland, IN) for a few hours of hiking. Shades State Park (~50 minute drive) has a lot of hiking in ravine beds as well as some beautiful gorges, so bring some comfortable shoes that you can hike with.
For the carpool we ask that you bring $3 to chip-in for gas with your driver and ABE GSA will be bringing drinks (water, maybe Gatorade/Powerade) and some snacks for the hike (trail mix, granola bars, etc.) as well as paying for the park entrance fee.
*Note: In July it gets hot and sunny, so make sure bring sunscreen and it may be helpful to also bring a personal water-bottle as well to keep hydrated.
