~ 1984 - 1989 Schedule Archive ~ ...and a little schedule history
Information on this page is from a listing of 721 Crooked Canes outings contained
in a Crooked Cane archive notebook. Only the first 249 entries in
the list are shown on this page. In 1990 the Canes schedules were
digitized and are, all outing details included, in our present archives
starting with 1990 - 2004. The first printed schedule in the notebook starts with
#8, Mt. Hope Furnace.
Excepting a photo on the May - June, 1986 schedule, "artistic florishes"
first appeared on the July
-August 1986 schedule which also included an outing difficulty rating system used from
May through December, 1986. The first instance of outing numbers
"officially" appearing on
a schedule is
though there are schedules with hand written numbers added after
publication back to January 19, 1989. Colored paper came into vogue
starting with May - June, 1994.
The first color picture found in our archive is on the
May - June, 1999 schedule
which may have been published twice, once in black and white and, with
other edits, the first page, in color shown after the full B & W
version. July - August,
2000 is possibly the last schedule available only on paper. Subsequent schedules, through
November - December 2012 include URLs
and were most likely available on paper or the web though soon
transitioning to availablity only on the web.
