Knots and Tarpology

  • First Congregation Church *(corner of park and michigan in the back lounge) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

 Join us to learn how to rig a tarp for a variety of reasons- everything from sleeping out over night to hosting a group of people outdoors! An alternative to expensive canopies that break when you fold them up! We will begin by learning a few basic knots and then moving out into the park to tie up some tarps. 

If you would like to get a head start on the knots: Clove Hitch, Taught Line Hitch, and Bowline Hitch

These knots are also useful in many other situations such as securing things to roof racks, bike racks, etc...

DIT FREE SCHOOL: Accountability Online & IRL

In this discussion, we hope to define the terms "accountability," "call out / call in," "white fragility," "distancing," and "disposability" as they relate to our fight for social justice, discuss effective tactics for calling out & calling in our peers, and discuss how to react when you've been called out or called in.

There will be vegan & gluten free snacks and non-alcoholic beverages!! This is a substance-free event.
