October 2022 General Meeting

Tips on Running Longer Trips, Things I wish I hadn’t learned …
with Dan Kidd
Dan Kidd, a longtime almost founding member – and past 4X president — will speak on what he has learned not to do when running a longer trip. Many of you have been warned about these trips, many to no avail. And yet people continue to sign up, so Dan must be doing something right.
Come see the why and the how to put the “A” for adventure into a trip! We will follow the thoughts and planning along with photos of canoe trips through the canyons of the Rio Grande River, one of his very favorite trips.
Dan is almost a charter member of MOAC. He’s been around a long time. He has led many of the most ambitious adventures ever undertaken. The Amazon, the Everglades, the Rio Grande, the Mediterranean, to just name a few. Dan is a master of all trades. A licensed pilot and boat captain, he is the club expert on long distant adventures. And no, despite rumors to the contrary, Dan has never lost anyone on a trip (that we know of).
In addition to the speaker, the meeting is a chance to hear about recent outings, hear about upcoming outings, and socialize with other MOACers. It’s also a chance for new or prospective members to ask questions. Meeting begins at 7:00, but come at 6:30 to socialize and meet people.
Location: the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church, 524 Allen Avenue, Portland (near Northgate Shopping Plaza). Here’s a Google Map link.
