July 4, 2016: Alex McCartan is an Industrial Design student at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. For his Senior Thesis Project he is redesigning the packboard and an important part of that process involves getting feedback from experienced users (that's you!). To do so, he has created a short survey that will validate some of the design opportunities found based on his preliminary research. Your responses will determine which directions have the most substance, and help him decide which to pursue as he enters the design and prototyping phase. Participation is greatly appreciated.

May 30, 2016: We seem to have lost track of these OH. Please contact if you have any information.

March 18, 2016: Cabin Family Pass Now Available

Our new Annual Cabin Pass has proven to be so popular, that now there is a family version! The $150 fee covers 2 spouses and their own children.

February 22, 2016: Minutes of OH Steering Committee meetings are always available on the OH Forum, which is a link at the top of the menus on the right side of the home page.

December 2, 2015: Cabin Annual Pass Now Available

In 2016, the OHA will be piloting an "annual pass" program for the OH Cabin. Instead of paying for each stay, OH will have the opportunity to pay $75 up front (in addition to $25 dues) for the season.
Our hope is that this will engender more ownership of our Cabin, as well as be more financially viable for the OHA. (And yes, cabin rules still apply, so you can't live there for a long period of time, much as you might like to.) We also want people to use the Cabin more, interact, socialize and to encourage everyone to pay their share. The "annual pass" pays for itself in-anyone? anyone? Bueller?-that's right, five visits. So pony up now for 2016 and see you on Washburn Way.
