Anyone interested in going away this weekend, saturday perhaps? It would be good to know if we have enough people with cars interested. Otherwise we need to check out rental cars.

Template:CSSS 2008 Santa Fe


Scheduled Fun

Wednesday June 4

Board Game evening (around 8pm)

Location: TBA (recommend one here)

Organizer: Devin

Looks like Wednesday might be the first unscheduled evening, so let’s meet up! Interested folks should bring any games they have or just show up ready to play. I’m trying to find a good spot, so look for details later. I really enjoy teaching new players and I’ve brought along several that take only minutes to learn, so come join even if you’re just looking for a way to pass some time. Also, I brought several games that can accommodate a large number of people (up to 8 people).

Activities and Interests

Discovering the surroundings

Interested in discovering the surroundings? The meaning of "surrounding" is scale-free - this could be just Los Alamos but maybe also as far as the Grand Canyon. Are you interested? Got some ideas? Go here and write it down.

Hiking Activities

SUGGESTION FOR A FULL HIKING DAY:

- Start with a long hike in the Bandelier National Park. It is faboulous for slow walking and talking. - Continue with Bradbury Science museum in Los Alamos and a short Los Alamos sightseeing. - Dinner in Los Alamos. - A night dip and some cold beers in the magnificent hot springs.

Anyone interested in going away this weekend, saturday perhaps? It would be good to know if we have enough people with cars interested. Otherwise we need to check out rental cars. Please notify your interest at Doodle:

Hola CSSS'ers,

Let's get together and explore the beauty and wilderness of Santa Fe's mountains!

Start by joining our Facebook group:

CSSS'08 Hiking Group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=17254991462

Hasta la vista! Carlos


I've always wanted to see the Native American cliff dwellings. There are ruins near Santa Fe! http://www.nmsu.edu/~redtt/Resources/html/Cliff%20Dwellings.html

Santa Fe Complex (Downtown in the Railyard)

When you are downtown, feel free to use the new Santa Fe Complex as a home away from St. John's. SFComplex is a non-profit dedicated to applied complexity, urban planning and computational art. We have a large 4000 square foot common space in the railyard where the train locomotives used to be repaired. In the space are projection screens and broadband access. Use the space for CSSS projects, film screenings, ad-hoc lectures or meeting others in Santa Fe in the Applied Complexity space. Or, just play some music and hang out into the wee hours. The address is 632 Agua Fria. More info at http://www.sfcomplex.org. Want to know more, contact Stephen Guerin at (505)577-5828 or Owen Densmore (505)570-0168.

Get A Bike (for the month)

Get a bicycle to ride around while in Santa Fe from a bike collective place called Chain Breaker. Their website is under maintenance right now, but here's some info on them.

Board Games

I’ve seen a couple of other folks have interests in playing board games. It would be fun to get folks together to play some evenings. I’m always up for learning a new game and meeting other players. I’m going to bring a few that are small and compact enough to travel. Maybe others can bring some too? Cheers, Devin

I started a list so we know what will be in Santa Fe. Add to the list if you'll bring it with you. Board Game List

Ultimate Frisbee

I (Nish) brought a disc and cones to play some Ultimate on the weekends (or after class). I'm happy to just throw around as well. Ultimate is, or can be, super casual and a lot of fun. Grab me some time if you want to throw (I always have a disc nearby) or if you're interested in playing a game (no prior experience necessary).

Local Music

I love live music, especially folk/bluegrass. I did some quick searching and there are a few shows I think I will go to this month in Santa Fe:

June 7, 1PM: Sharon Gilchrist at Cowgirl June 20, evening: Raising Cane

Those are just the two I've found, I'm up for whatever
