Remembering 1997-1998: January 30,1998

The January 30, 1998 issue of The Observer made it clear that CWRU had winter on its mind. The schedule for Winter Carnival included snow flag football and snow volleyball. The Outdoor Wilderness Association planned a winter hike at the Metroparks North Chagrin Reservation. And the Fun Photo of the Week depicted a skier with the caption, Caution: Bare Spots. (I cannot describe this. You will have to look for yourself.)
