September 3: Update for Cal Alumni Regarding the Tuolumne County Rim Fire

Dear Lair Campers, Cal Alumni, and Friends,

Some good news — the most recent update on the Tuolumne County Rim Fire is that it is now 75% contained with a forecast of 100% containment by September 20. Additionally, the evacuation advisory has been lifted for the Pinecrest and Mi-Wuk areas.

While the Lair is now officially closed with the cancelation of our last scheduled sessions (our Young Alumni Weekend and Oski Family Weekend that were scheduled for this upcoming weekend), we anticipate reopening the Chalet by Friday, September 6.  

We will continue to closely monitor the direction and progress of the containment of the fire, and we are posting regular updates on our Cal Alumni Association’s Facebook page and the Lair Facebook page.

Thank you for your continued positive thoughts.
