A.A.C., New England Section. The year began with a determined group of Bostonians, meeting at Chairman Streibert’s home in Newton, to delegate some of the responsibilities of the newsletter, mailing list, treasury, planning of meetings, and issues to others. Paul Duval and Lois Malone accepted co-editorship of the newsletter, which was renamed The Pitch. Steve Hendrick agreed to maintain the membership list. John Imbrie became treasurer, and Section dues were set. Al Rubin was in his element when he accepted the “issues” role, which would include a regular item for the newsletter. Meeting dates were set, and hosts were found. A more organized Section was underway.

The winter meeting was held again at Jed Williamson’s in Jackson, New Hampshire. The Section owes much to Jed’s hospitality and warm winter cheer, which have brought out a good crowd during the last several years at his home. This year, however, unseasonable rain and warm weather reduced the crowd to a small hard core, who, nevertheless, enjoyed the winter “spirit.”

The spring meeting at John Bouchard’s in North Conway, New Hampshire, was scheduled with a trip taken to the area by a group from the New York Section. The fall meeting at Ken Nichol’s in West Granby, Connecticut, topped off a perfect autumn day of climbing on the many traprock cliffs that abound in the woods of central Connecticut.
