The University of Hartford's
Outing Club

This year (2012) is the last year that Jay will try to start the Outing Club. If the first meeting--kindly provided by Peter Oliver--does not produce a core of students interested in making the UHart Outing Club a reality, it will be the only meeting (and following trips) that Jay organizes. Please come!
