All general membership meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the following months: January, March, May, September, and November. The meetings officially begin at 7 PM, but members are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes early for socializing.  The meetings are held at the Science Museum of Virginia at 2500 West Broad Street, Richmond VA 23220-2057.  Snacks to share are always welcome.   For more information contact Dave Olli at odatc.activities@gmail.com.

2017 Club meeting topics are as follows:

  • January 12:  Join us at the November general meeting with guest speaker John Bander, Bicycling Enthusiast presenting Oregon to Virginia:  A Big Ride Across America.  Plus club updates, gear swap (bring your outdoor gear for give away or barter), and a chance to catch up with and meet new friends.  Museum closes to public at 5:00, setting up before but any time after 6:00 is fine.  Meeting officially starts 7:00 pm. Feel free to bring a snack to share. 

  • March 14:  Aaron Proctor, District Wildlife Biologist, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries presents  “VDGIF and You The Outdoor Enthusiast”.   Aaron will give an agency overview, services they provide, and possibly hit on a few big topics that we commonly get asked about from outdoor recreationists- bear encounters, coyotes, the elusive mountain lion.

  • May 9: It’s our annual pot luck dinner/club presentation night and a formal return of the club gear swap! Bring a covered main and/or side dish then sit back and enjoy as members have approximately 5 minutes to briefly talk about a few of their outdoor experiences over the past year. Submit/attach no more than 5 images in an Email to David Olli at dolli@smv.org no later than Tuesday, May 2 and I’ll put ‘em all in a PowerPoint presentation for the evening. We’re also encouraging everyone to bring any gear they’re looking to barter or give away. Here’s your chance to finally rid of that extra backpack, tent, camp stove, cooking gear, snake bite kit, anything clogging up your outdoor gear storage area to someone in need.

  • September 12: Speaker TBA

  • November 14: Speaker TBA

Note that the club has shifted the meetings back to the Science Museum.
