A.A.C., New England Section. The year 1980 began with the disastrous lack of snow, which brought about the cancellation of our annual winter White Mountain meeting at Jed Williamson’s cozy farm house in Jackson, New Hampshire. “Bad call,” said some. “You don’t always let the weather call off climbs, do you?” Good point. Cancellations set bad precedents.
As the year wound around to June, the Section was given another chance, and a summer get together was well attended, again thanks to Jed’s generosity.
Toward fall our activities lapsed except for the many members who made their way to Washington, D.C., and the Club’s annual meeting there. Jed Williamson and Terris Moore gave very different and tremendously interesting views of their expeditions in China.
The Section newsletter, The Crux, which was entirely the creature of Lois Malone and very praiseworthy, met with shut down. I expect to see a newsletter again as well as other improvements in the Section’s level of activity. More and more people seem to be interested in being involved.
