Origami Class: Learn the Traditional Japanese Art of Paper Folding 02/19/12 : Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century at the latest and was popularized outside Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.  The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. In general, these designs begin with a square sheet of paper whose sides may be different colors or prints. Traditional Japanese origami, which has been practiced since the Edo era (1603–1867), has often been less strict about these conventions, sometimes cutting the paper or using non-square shapes to start with.  The principles of origami are also being used in stents, packaging, and other engineering structures. Photographs (C) Justin Tzou 2012

Valentines “Bee” Mine: Rooftop Beekeeping & Honey Demo at The Fairmont San Francisco 02/11/12 : The DAASV arranged for the perfect Valentines activity, one that was romantic, good for the environment, totally unique, *and* educational. This was a behind-the-scenes look at the epicurean garden on The Fairmont San Francisco's famed rooftop — home to four recently installed honey beehives, each housing 50,000 bees!  While donning professional beekeeping suits, Dartmouth alumni and their guests heard from Helene and Spencer Marshall (owners of Marshall's Farm Natural Honey, and keepers of The Fairmont’s bee hives) and Executive Chef jW Foster, who brought the bees to the hotel.  While using freshly harvested honey from the garden, alumni also enjoyed cooking demonstrations by Chef Foster and Executive Pastry Chef Stephen Sullivan.  On the menu were a pickled vegetable bruschetta, a dessert, two honey cocktail options, and a non-alcoholic sparkling honey lemonade.  Photos (C) Justin Tzou 2012

Get In Touch With Your Inner Cupid:  Introductory Archery Lessons 02/06/12 : DAASV members got in touch with thier inner Cupid, and just in time for Valentines Day.  Be it a romantic date night, or simply a way to meet other adventurous alumni, the DAASV arranged for archery lessons at the only dedicated indoor archery range in the Silicon Valley. (Seriously, who knew?!?)  Our private session was perfect for those who have never shot a bow, or those with some previous experience that simply seek a refresher session. Essentials were covered prior to shooting, including correctly sizing equipment to the archer (bow, arrows, safety gear, etc.), determining eye dominance (eye dominance, controls, and aiming) and best type of bow used.  Also covered were range rules, safety rules, and fundamentals of archery.

Santa Claus Needs A Helping (Dartmouth) Hand 12/01/11 : Sending letters to Santa have been a Christmas tradition for more than 100 years. Each year, children flood the postal service with their wish lists for Santa, some sending priority mail straight to the North Pole. It's a daunting job, and Santa can use some help. This year, as in years past, he’ll get it thanks to some Dartmouth elves in the Silicon Valley.  This is a call for volunteers to help Santa answer some of the kids' letters and hopefully provide a gift. Making a child's holiday special is what the program is all about.   The Dartmouth community met at the Menlo Grill in the Stanford Park Hotel for some holiday cheer, hors d’oeuvres, and then picked up a letter or two with the intent of lending Santa a helping hand.

Leadership Workshop: Corporate Governance, Conflicts of Interest, and Ethical Dilemmas in Alumni Club Service 01/22/12 : As alumni club leaders, we face conflicts of interest and ethical dilemmas, are exposed to external liabilities, and are routinely dealing with issues involving governance.  The DAASV organized and hosted another half-day workshop for fellow Silicon Valley Ivy club leaders. This was a thought provoking, and highly practical discussion about corporate governance and liability issues facing all Ivy League alumni clubs. This seminar addressed myriad issues and provided numerous solutions.  Topics addressed included governance and compliance issues, conflicts of interest and ethical dilemmas, liability issues, and risk management.  Special thanks to Stefan Szulc of Marsh Risk & Insurance Services, and Douglas Park JD PhD of DYP Advisors for their generosity of time and expertise.

DAASV Overnight Adventure Aboard the USS Hornet 07/23/11 : Behold an overnight Dartmouth experience — for more than 130 alumni — aboard the USS Hornet, a WWII aircraft carrier that served in Korea, Vietnam, and the Apollo program.  The ship earned nine battle stars in WWII, hosted past presidents Nixon and Ford, recovered astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong from the moon, and was the set for Rescue Dawn with Christian Bale (in case astronauts and presidents weren’t enough).  Everything has been restored—down to the mess hall, where DAASV members were served dinner and breakfast. Our quarters are the original suspended three-tiered bunk beds linked together by chains, and one lucky alum got the admiral’s cabin set up last occupied by President Nixon (but that’s another story).  Programming included guided tours to special weapons, engine room, bridge, catapult, and brig areas.  Alumni experiences flight simulators, and children listened to ghost stories in the ship's foc'sle (or forecastle).  And while there’s that element of roughing it aboard ship, it’s nothing a little beer pong in the Ward Room couldn’t fix.  Roughing it is better with beer pong.
