Oct. 25 - Fall Potluck Social
It's our social event of the fall, and you're invited! Come to Adventuring's Fall Potluck & Social and reminisce over a year of hiking, riding and splashing together.

This fall, Peter and Carlos are hosting on Capitol Hill. The event begins at 7:00 PM and is accessible by metro (Capitol South), bus, bike, or car (though we recommend metro). WE WILL SEND OUT THE ADDRESS TO THOSE WHO RSVPED FOR THE SOCIAL ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23.

Bring a dish to share with four fellow Adventurers. Beverages will be provided. Dish assignments based on surnames appear below.

* A through E: Main Course
* F through J: Desserts
* K through P: Salads
* Q through Z: Hors d'Oeuvres or Snacks

This is a free event ( long as you bring your dish assignment), and guests are welcome. Please RSVP via, or email Jeff at

If you can't make it, thank you for making this a great summer for Adventuring; and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Pick the Place—Set the Pace—Be the Face
Have you ever wanted to be the one who decides where Adventuring goes? Have you ever thought, “I would like to set the pace?” Have you thought, “More people like me should be on this trip.” Become a Trip Leader, and you can pick the place, set the pace AND be the new face of Adventuring!

Adventuring’s volunteer Trip Leaders hone leadership skills while having fun with friends. Trip Leaders share practical tips with each other while serving Adventuring’s unique mission—opening up the Great Outdoors to the LGBT community!

Becoming a Trip Leader is easy and free. Contact the Program Coordinator in your area of interest listed at , or simply contact Keith Bennett at You can also contact any one on our Operations Committee listed at

Adventuring will pair you with a current Trip Leader with similar interests, and the two of you will plan and conduct your first Adventure together. Once you are comfortable with the process—then you get to pick the place, set the pace and be the new face of Adventuring!
