North Carolina Carleton Club Voted "Biggest Little Club"

Quick trip to Northfield for Club Chairs Weekend.

This event used to take place in May.
Now November.

I no longer have a wardrobe for November in MN so time outside was minimized. I did tolerate the elements long enough to get the obligatory shot by the sign that proclaims Northfield as the town of "Cows, Colleges & Contentment."NC is technically a "small club" - purely based on number of alums in the state. By attitude, events, attendance, we're big big big, so we got the "Biggest Little Club Award." I might have given us the "Jack Russell Club Award."

Carleton had some comforting familiarities that weekend - Turkey Farm smell, for example. Less familiar: new dorms. They were nice (as in "I might rent an apartment here"). Flat screen monitors in the foyers? Like in an airport, or ad agency. Then I realized the monitors were showing energy consumption in the dorms. Ah, that's much more "Carleton."
