Anyone into GeoCaching?
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences…
Shall we create a few GeoCaches on Trails End Ranch for other brothers to find? If so, give me a shout and let’s brainstorm.
If you’d prefer to explore the coutryside surrounding the ranch, here’s a link to GeoCaches in the Medina area for you to load into your iPhone or GPS.
A group of students from the University of Texas created this parody/spoof of the movie “The Social Network”. If you don’t get it, you probably need to spend more time with the chapter undergraduates. <grin>

This is the online home of the Texas Zeta Mu ATO Alumni Association (Sam Houston State University, Huntsville). We have an online database of alumni contact information, chapter & alumni news, events, reference materials and more.
We’re putting out a call for volunteers to assist in making this site more useful to our brothers. Can you help? We need:
- Brothers to create ‘how to’ articles and screencasts
- graphics talent
- help updating the alumni contact list
- volunteers to write short articles of interest to the other brothers
- photographers to upload photos
- photo editors
- event editor
- people to buy drinks for the web team
Most of these roles do not require any special skills. For example, if you can call a “lost” brother and gather information to update the contact list, we need you! If you are willing and able to help Zeta Mu grow its online presence, please sign up for an account. If you have any questions, please use the contact form to send feedback or call David Matocha at (281) 201-4470.
Zeta Mu ATO Little Sister from the early 1980’s, Shannon Mitchel, lost her brother Chuck to liver disease earlier this week (January 30, 2011). Many of us from that era knew Shannon, but, a lot of us have lost touch with her, other brothers and little sisters over the years. If you are on Facebook, Shannon can be reached at facebook.com/shannon.mitchel.
An old man, going a lone highway,
Came, at the evening, cold and gray,
To a chasm, vast, and deep, and wide,
Through which was flowing a sullen tide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
The sullen stream had no fear for him;
But he turned, when safe on the other side,
And built a bridge to span the tide.
