Saf National Convention, Ames Forestry Club

Ames Forester

This year's Society of American Foresters National Convention was held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Six ISU forestry students attended from October 5-9, including Scott Dowling, Matt Latiolais, Mike McCauley, Megan Sweeney, Nicky Webb, and Spencer Wicks. After landing in Greensboro, NC, a new friend of ISU forestry was discovered. Waiting for his own flight was none other than Richard Simmons! The crazy, frizzy-haired, spandex-clad little man was filled with just as much energy as When he’s “sweatin' to the oldies", or on the Late Show with David Letterman. He organized the picture above and proceeded to give the ...

Fall Forestry Camp 2002, Andy Bartlett

Ames Forester

Every year Fall Forestry camp provides a great opportunity for students to gain experience in the forestry field by stepping out of the classroom and into the outdoors. It also allows ISU foresters to develop an understanding for the family-like nature of one of the oldest forestry programs in the nation. This year was no different. Fall Camp 2002 was a huge success. We learned a lot and had a great time. We gained knowledge and experience that will not only carry through our years at Iowa State, but into our professional careers as well.

Saf Groundhog Day Racquetball Tournament, Lydia Brawner

Ames Forester

The Society of American Foresters held the first annual Groundhog Day racquetball tournament on February 2nd at Beyer Hall. Despite the bad news that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow (a sure sign of six more weeks of winter), a considerable amount of talent was displayed as each player went head-to-head for the championship. The whole tournament lasted four hours and many beads of sweat were shed.
