Scheduled Fun

Wednesday June 4

Board Game evening (around 8pm)

Location: Common Room (ground floor) #37 on the map

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. Let's see if we can take over the Common Room (lower floor) in the lower dorm area. 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).

Wednesday June 11

Albuquerque Isotopes Baseball Game

Any interest in going to see an Albuquerque Isotopes baseball game? Next Wednesday June 11 might be a good day since I don't think there are any after hours events scheduled. Game time is 7pm so we could leave after class and easily make it on time. Looks like tickets are $9 and $11 (plus $3 online fee).

List your name if you want to attend. Let me know by Sunday and I'll buy the tickets.

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

Thanks Kolbjørn! Sounds a great pick. This Saturday would be great as most CSSSers are fired up and ready to go. I will post a message on our Facebook group for Saturday as well.



- 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!

Hasta la vista! Carlos

I've always wanted to see the Native American cliff dwellings. There are ruins near Santa Fe!


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 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


Ten Thousand Waves is very close to St. John's. Any interest?

Definitely. Kathleen
