The Outing Club is a relaxed, friendly, fun group of people who enjoy getting to know each other in the great outdoors. In addition to all the "extreme" adventures (backpacking, climbing, caving, boating, skiing, etc) club members often get together just to have a good time and to explore the city of Madison or the stateâ€™s popular tourist destinations. Below are some typical social trips that Hoofers have enjoyed together:
Play informal games of broomball, ultimate frisbee(sometimes they play this in kayaks), hockey, or soccer.
Visit Dr Evermorâ€™s art sculpture park on the way to Devilâ€™s Lake for a hike along the bluffs.
Watch Rhythm and Booms (the Midwestâ€™s largest fireworks display) from boats on Lake Mendota around the 4th of July holiday.
Ride the Capital City Bike Trail and picnic along the way.
Go ice skating at Tenney Park, or sledding at Elver.
Bake and decorate holiday cookies at a Hooferâ€™s house.
