DAASV vs. Yale on the waves 3/16/2013 : On 3/16/2013 members of the Dartmouth Alumni Association of Silicon Valley (DAASV) and guests boarded the Lady Washington, a historic tall ship visiting the San Francisco Bay. This was not another day sail.  Instead, we experienced thrilling “Battle of the Bay” — a simulated maritime battle reenactment with another tall ship, the Hawaiian Chieftain. This was about real cannons (but no cannon balls), close-quarters maneuvers, and an educational taste of 18th century maritime life aboard tall ships. The Hawaiian Chieftain was populated by the Yale alumni club?

In 1788, the original Lady Washington became the first American vessel to make landfall on the west coast of North America as well as the first to visit Honolulu, Hong Kong, and Japan. At 112 feet, the modern Lady Washington is an exact historic reproduction launched in 1989, and is the Official Ship of the State of Washington.

At 103 feet, the Yale Club's topsail ketch Hawaiian Chieftain is a replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the nineteenth century. Her hull shape and rigging are similar to those of Spanish explorer's ships used in the expeditions of the late 18th century along the Washington, Oregon, and California coasts.

Our swashbuckling adventure — perfect for the entire family — departed from the Port of Redwood City.  Participants were invited to come dressed in their favorite Dartmouth or "Pirates of the Caribbean" gear.  This was, indeed, an alumni event like no other!

DAASV and Admissions Process 9/24/12 : On 9/24/12 the Dartmouth Alumni Association of Silicon Valley (DAASV) and the Dartmouth Club of Greater San Francisco hosted an opportunity for club member parents and students to discover what it takes to become a Dartmouth student today.  Attendees spent some social time sharing at the University Club of Palo Alto, then Isabel Bober '04, Associate Director of Admissions at Dartmouth College, provided several application packages for participants to review and discuss.  After interactive discussion of each application and voting on which application lead to acceptance, wait listing, or rejection, participants were told what actually happened with each.  It was a unique opportunity to better understand the application process and how the College considers applicants.

Monterey Bay is a prime feeding location for these whales, and is the best place in the nation to observe a variety of marine mammals and seabirds. The whales often concentrate in a variety of locations within the Bay depending on movements and abundance of the their primary prey — anchovies and krill. Marine biologist, Nancy Black was onboard and has worked with whales and dolphins in the region for over 10 years, and has become an expert in the biology of whales off the California coast.

Dartmouth Thrill Ride: Zip Lining Over The Redwoods 06/24/12 : Were you one of the…um, daring…souls who scaled the smokestack of Dartmouth’s heating plant?  How about the flyspace arches of the Moore Theatre at the Hop?  Perhaps Bartlett Tower or the Lone Pine?  Well, if a high-flying adventure is your thing, but the thrill of getting caught is not, we had an alumni event for you: a zipline through redwood and Douglas fir tree-tops in Sonoma.  Alumni couldn't believe how high-pitched their excitement got as their zipped through California’s giants. There’s no need to risk a run in with Campus Po for a thrill, because the DAASV hosted a popular eco-tourism adventure in wine country.
