The Florida Chapter headed to a second round at the University of Florida's Lake Wauburg Ropes Course. It started with activities aimed to get to know each other and warm up. We followed it with a game of Alaskan football where we passed the Frisbee above and below each person then the last person threw a Frisbee and to score points run around our team. We then broke up into 2 separate groups completing a low alpine course where everyone had to work as a team to get everyone across a two foot high log-course with various obstacles and team problem solving activities as well as multiple other team building activities working on communication and trust...

Barrett Keene is a former agriscience teacher from Florida who is embarking on a crazy adventure. He is taking the last few months of his PHD at Cornell University to walk literally across the United States of America. Why is he taking on such a crazy adventure? Well at the Florida Chapters meeting he shared those exact thoughts. Barrett is supporting a cause that not many of us think about on a daily basis or much at all unless you see commercials or know of someone who came from the situation. I am talking about orphaned and abandoned kids. He is promoting the Global Orphan Project as he walks talking to student and people just like our members to help be proactive ad sustainable about getting the children in the project schooling and care...

The Florida Chapter had its second to last intramural sand volleyball game on Sunday. The members who showed up to play that night and were met by a team with the same record as we did. Both teams warmed up and our team continued to show great improvements upon each successive time we play together and are definitely looking forward to the last game of the season. As for the game itself it was a rainy and cold night so the teams decided to call it a draw and go into their last game as 1-1-1. The team is looking forward to their next opponent Sketchville USA and hope it will be another good game ending with a win!

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

With all the smores fixings bought, the Florida Chapter was off to another successful woodser. Every semester we take a road trip to a local campsite in the middle of what seems to be nowhere for our Woodser. We reserved a campground at Kate's Fish Camp where the ranger came out and helped set up our bonfire to make delicious smores! Members gathered around the fire to share stories about their semester and to meet the newest pledges...

UF Ronald McDonald House Service 2/21/12 & 2/23/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter took their lunch break to go join up with other organizations and sororities to help out at the local Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville. While at the house members help remove and replace box springs and mattresses in the house. The Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing, basic amenities and support to families with critically ill children seeking treatment at area medical facilities. The program helps to stabilize situations for families and allow them to concentrate all of their time and energy on the treatment and recovery of their children. By just changing out their beds to something newer and more comfortable we may have just made their day a tad better!...

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Orange and Blue Archery Club hosted Alpha Zeta for an archery lesson before their club practice. A team member Lauren taught the group the proper techniques of how to hold a bow and the arrow and equipment for shooting arrows. There was a great turnout for Alpha Zeta and all of the members had a great time! After overcoming the difficulty of the wind, members were able to shoot at foam targets, and several members came close while others did in fact hit the bulls eye. Members were able to learn about the challenges of tournament play and the different types of bows and arrows required for the sport. It was a great experience to join up with another UF club and a fun day outdoors!
