DAASV Hosts All-Ivy Father's Day at OCSC 06/17/12 : Dartmouth alumni of all ages, and their families, along with alumni from several other Ivy Universities, met for a “Day on the Bay” and a Father's Day celebration.  The event had something for everyone — a lecture, BBQ, sailing, kite flying, volleyball, and even a jumpy house for the kids (and inspired alumni).  With the 34th America's Cup is coming to the Bay Area, and as future Cup hosts, we provided alumni with some knowledge and experience about this exciting extreme pastime as well as our local environs. An entertaining and educational lecture called, "The Secrets of the San Francisco Bay" was given by by OCSC founder and president, Anthony Sandberg '71.

Track Cycling At San Jose Velodrome 06/02/12 : Gentlemen, start your engines!  Well, get your legs moving, that is.  Track bicycling is a lot like NASCAR, only the vehicle of transport is a single-speed bike with no brakes. Sound dicey? It isn't—not under the good instruction we found at San Jose's Hellyer Park Velodrome.  At the Saturday morning beginner sessions, Dartmouth alumni and their guests got a "crash course" on how to speed around the 23-degree embanked track known as a velodrome. Wheelies not recommended.

Sea Kayaking The Elkhorn Slough Estuary Reserve 05/27/12 : The Elkhorn Slough National Estuary Reserve is California's second largest marine wetland, and one of only twenty such areas in the nation, and we will be in the heart of it.  Dartmouth alumni and guests experienced nature while paddling with a guide/naturalist.  This expansive tidal wetland is an important habitat for sea otters, harbor seals, and over 250 resident and migratory bird species. May is bird migration and pupping season for otters and seals. In addition, seven currently endangered species make their homes here, making Elkhorn Slough a "must see" for naturalists.

Dartmouth vs Stanford Polo Tournament 05/12/12 : Dartmouth families and friends gathered for an afternoon of fast and fun polo as the Big Green faced off against Stanford in our 4th Annual Inter-Collegiate Polo Tournament at the beautiful Menlo Circus Club in Atherton.  Alumni reunited with former classmates, and relaxed on the shady sidelines of the field.  Tailgating was strongly encouraged, so many brought a picnic and toasted Dartmouth's 9-5 victory!  Noted equestrian, and equine vet, Ashley McCaughan DVM '04 was on hand to provide an introductory “Polo 101” talk for those new to the sport.  Alumni stepped out onto the field at halftime for the traditional “divot stomp”, and afterwards took the opportunity to meet the players and their ponies.

DAASV Bike Ride Through Sonoma's Alexander Valley 05/06/12 : Dartmouth alumni mounted up for a scenic, 26-mile, round-trip ride through Sonoma’s beautiful Alexander Valley.  This ride featured a few rests — at local wineries (for research purposes, of course).  It started at Lake Sonoma Recreational Parking Lot, as the first segment took us along Dry Creek Road to Ferrari-Carano Winery, J. Pedroncelli Winery, and Geyser Peak Winery.  From there, cyclists headed south along Redwood Highway to the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, and Simi Winery.  Afterward, everyone headed northwest along Dry Creek Road to the Dry Creek General Store to buy lunch, then to Dry Creek Vineyard for a picnic al fresco.  Following lunch, everyone rode along West Dry Creek Road to Bella Vineyards Wine & Cave before returning to Lake Sonoma.

NPR "Says You" Live Taping & VIP Reception 04/22/12 : Dartmouth alumni and their guests met for two LIVE tapings of NPR’s “Says You!” — the game of words and whimsy, bluff and bluster.  Host Richard Sher and hilarious panelists Barry Nolan, Francine Achbar, Tony Kahn, Carolyn Faye Fox, Arnie Reisman, Paula Lyons, and Philip Salkind were fast on their feet and smart on their tongues. They kept everyone guessing whether the ludicrous-sounding definitions are real or simply calculated to fool everyone!  In addition to the shows, alumni and guests met in the “Green Room” for a private, Dartmouth VIP reception with the show’s cast before the first taping and between shows.  If that wasn't enough, one lucky youngster of a Dartmouth alum was featured as part of the "Says You!" broadcast as an official scorekeeper!

Tequila Tasting & Mixology Class 05/01/12 : You know what makes everything better? Tequila! And no one knows that better than the Dartmouth Alumni Association of Silicon Valley. Tequila. The word alone conjures up images of legendary 19th-century estates, borderline-obsessive craftsmanship, and agave cooking in clay ovens. At least it does once a nip of Milagro finds its way into your glass.
And just in time for Cinco de Mayo, DAASV members spent two-hours at a tequila mixing class at the University Club. Mixologist and spirits expert Joel Teitelbaum served each attendee a flight of three delicious tequilas, walked us through the history and uses of this potent elixir, and taught everyone to recreate the “Worlds Freshest Margarita” first hand. This was NOT a passive experience!  Dartmouth alumni also learned to prepare tequila sauces, guacamole, and other appetizing botanas, after which more snacks were served as the class transitioned into a full-blown happy hour.  Hey, what did we say? Tequila just makes everything better… and the DAASV ain’t bad either!

The Bay Model is an education center administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which makes possible the viewing of a scientific tool: a working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento, or more specially the San Joaquin River Delta System. The Bay Model is a three-dimensional hydraulic model of San Francisco Bay and Delta areas capable of simulating tides and currents. The Model is over 1.5 acres in size and represents an area from the Pacific Ocean to Sacramento and Stockton, including: the San Francisco, San Pablo and Suisun Bays and a portion of the Sacramento - San Joaquin Delta.
