A combination is needed to open the inner door; you may get the combination from by email, or wait at the door until a Board member arrives.

Note From Ian Tidswell

Below is the agenda of the BAOC board meeting tomorrow (Monday) in Oakland. The meeting starts at 7pm, and we'll have pizza at 6:30p. You can find directions below.

I'd also like to announce that my job is taking me to London for a couple of years, so I will be stepping down as President, effective soon. Along with the resignations of long standing board members Evan (Event Coordination), George (Treasurer), and others, we have quite a few open slots in the club leadership. If you care about orienteering in the Bay Area, think about standing for one of these positions or other ways you can make a strong contribution to the club.

I'll say a few more words about my thoughts on the wonderful club that we have in a later note, but I will definitely miss my orienteering friends here, and will look forward to returning in a couple of years.
