MMC among 4 finalists for $10,000 Polartec grant

Polartec may line the Mountain Club's pockets not with toasty synthetic fleece but with cold cash.

Polartec, expert maker and distributor of things for keeping people warm, recently created a contest for college outdoors clubs across the country. The competition, called “Made Possible,” offers $10,000 to the club with the best proposal for a new project.  Middlebury’s own Mountain Club is one of four finalists. Their plan is to create a comprehensive book for incoming freshmen with directions to and insider info about tons of hiking-climbing-canoeing-swimming-chilling-etc. places in Vermont. This is pretty noteworthy, especially since MMC is the only finalist that isn’t a large university.
