Oh my gosh!!!! Could it really be true????? Could it be time for the bi-annual CREEAKTHON?!?!??!?!?! That’s right shredlings, it’s time for you to GET CREEK’D!!!!!!
They say you never forget your first Creekathon and it is so true: getting creek’d is unlike anything you’ve ever done before. The formula is simple: you, us, a pavilion, and a walnut. But the possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!!! ALL of your wildest dreams could come true at creekathon!!! Rumor has it the squirrels at Walnut Creek park are actually incredibly adept at speaking English they just only engage with those getting creek’d. And if you squelch the mud in just the right places…well, guess you’ll have to see yourself. Like I said…all your wildest dreams!!!!!

We have a pavilion reserved to serve as the central base camp from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM, SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 24th. MANY A TRIP will depart from base camp: paddle boarding, hiking, frisbeeing, mountain biking, slacklining, kayak roll clinic-ing, and anything you could possibly dream up – trip leaders, go wild, the ‘Nut is the perfect opportunity to lead a trip. This is the one and only semi-annual! local! mega-trip! and practically everyone who signs up gets on the trip. As for FOOD, the club will provide a nutritious and sustaining meal to be eaten at base camp, snacks and refreshments included.

– EVERYONE who is coming should sign up for the main carpool (this trip) FIRST, before signing up for mini-trips. (The officers will use this info to decide how much food to buy). If you are coming separately from the main carpool, just let us know in the signup questions. THIS IS THE MAIN CARPOOL AND IS SIMPLY HOW WE FIGURE OUT DRIVERS!
– The main carpool will depart from the Student Activities Building parking lot, at 10:00 am. Drivers, please arrive at 9:45. Once at the ‘Nut, all trips will depart from our pavilion-base-camp.
**Drivers and Trip Leaders, we need you!!! If you have never led a trip before, Creekathon is perhaps the best environment to lead your first trip.
**Reach out to the officers if you need trip ideas or have questions! You can also look at past Creekathon mini trips on the website by searching “completed” trips for ideas!
– Once at the ‘Nut, everyone’s trips will go out from base camp throughout the day. Fret not if you need to be back to grounds early, as cars will be coming and going regularly.
– All Creekathon trips should be posted on the website, with Creekathon in the title. They should all be listed for September 24th. For creekathon, it is perfectly OK to not be on trips as well and just hang out. But if you want to do any recreation beyond simply grilling and chilling keep your eye peeled for creekathon trips and post your own!
– Walnut Creek is only 20 minutes from Grounds, so gas will not be reimbursed.
– Please grab yourself in appropriate attire, sign up for mini adventures for creekathon on the website, and bring a water bottle. If you have/play an instrument – bring it! If you want a picnic blanket, bring it! If you have a journal or some yucca to braid- bring it!
In conclusion, COME HANG and get creek-ed. Stay tuned for email announcements with specifics for carpooling and other Creekathon deets in the coming days and weeks!

Rough timeline:
10:00 AM – leave for the ‘Nut
10:20 AM – arrive at nut and jam, grill, chill, & adventure
12:00PM (ish) – lunch!
2:30 PM – start packing up and head back home

What to bring
Water bottle (we’ll have water coolers to fill it up)
Eating utensils/plate if you can! (we will have extra but are trying to minimize waste)
Anything you need for trips that you are signed up for
Proper attire (check the weather!)
Something to sit on if you wish (a Crazy Creek? A towel? The dirt is also quite comfy though..)

Drivers needed!! You won’t be reimbursed because Walnut creek park is less than 15 miles away but we will be forever grateful <3
