Meeting 4/12 and Yurtapalooza Recap

Join us tomorrow at 7:30pm in 103 Churchill for our weekly meeting!

This past weekend, we celebrated Yurtapalooza up at the Loj. This was the last Loj weekend before taking down the yurt. We will be taking down the yurt this coming weekend. Yurtapalooza was a lot of fun, and even though we didn’t take down the yurt yet, we took out all the remaining items from the inside of the yurt, including the floorboards, the wood stove, the couches, the lights, and more. It was a chilly weekend and it was a bit bittersweet to say goodbye to the yurt, but the vibes were immaculate and we had many alumni from all across the country coming back to visit. We are still working on finding a forever home for the yurt, but we have some leads and hopefully it will remain in the NUHOC family.

We also heard some amazing musical performances at Yurtapalooza, including several songs written and performed by Dan Schwindinger specifically in honor of the event!

Meeting 4/5

Join us in Churchill 103 at 7:30pm tomorrow for our weekly meeting!

 This past weekend we picked out a ton of the posts and beams to be used in the new Loj based on their dimensions and quality! The reclaimed lumber was cleaned and labeled, and we’ll hopefully be able to starting cutting them to length and creating notches soon after the yurt comes down!

Speaking of the yurt, some of the remaining items like the bookcase and wood rack were removed as we approach yurt takedown soon!

This coming weekend will be Yurtapalooza, a weekend where we’ll celebrate the yurt and finalize preparations for its disassembly! Our build committee is will also be meeting with the Shelburne Planning Committee to discuss the Loj plans!
