Summer Gear Rooms!! and Adventure of the Week!

Hello ODC members!


With summer right around the corner, you might be scrounging and scheming and wondering, “Can I check out club gear to fund my reckless summertime pursuits?” Well. The answers are here. Read on to discover ODC’s summer gear room policy and stick around for one last Adventure of the Week!


During the summer ODC discontinues regular gear room hours. Summer gear rooms are scheduled on a case by case basis depending on when/if ODC officers are in Cville. If we are or are planning to be in town, we are more than happy to coordinate with you! You can coordinate a gear room by emailing us at or holla via ODC’s GroupMe liked HERE


If you are currently in possession of gear we ask that you please coordinate with us to return it! Gear tends to get really lonely and homesick the longer it is away from the gear room. If we are not able to coordinate a good time to collect your gear at the gear room or otherwise before the fall semester we ask that you please hang on to it and store it in a proper manner until regularly scheduled gear rooms resume. It is important to note that we will NOT be accepting gear returns in the form of drop-offs to the Shred Shack front room.




This week’s AOTW comes from Margret and Rory’s clover chaining trip yesterday!

From Margaret: We daisy chained as many clovers as possible in an effort to make the longest chain we possibly could in roughly one hour. With our combined efforts and some REALLY freaking tall clovers by McCormick Road, we extended our chain almost the length of Page dorm, and left it for all to admire. We also ate four leaf clovers in an attempt to reap their good fortune for finals.


Thanks for reading! We hope you have a great summer and can’t wait to see ya back here in the Blue Ridge!


Peace, love, and dirt
