New Meetups: guided day-trips, lessons, gym-climbing, dinners, and more!

Hey guys-

I know it may seem like I've been asleep at the wheel, but I have been working on a lot of really awesome things, to help our group be absolutely amazing!

 

The number one thing on which I've been working?  Lessons.  The majority of you have expressed a need to learn to belay, or just have a refresher.  Within the next two weeks, you will see a slew of different opportunities for this, both indoor and outdoor!

 

Other things on the way...

 

Intro to rock-climbing- For those who have never been rock-climbing, or never got to be familiar with it.  I'll be personally hosting these meetups at local gyms, and for those who are feeling a bit more adventurous, we'll be heading to THE GUNKS for day of outdoor guided climbing- large groups are okay- the more the merrier! 

 

Multi-pitch- For those who've had a decent amount of time climbing indoors, and are interested it taking what they've learned, or already know, outside!  Where?  The Gunks, The Adirondacks, annnnd, Western MA!

 

Top-rope set-up- Okay, folks!  This is where it gets real!  What better way for a soon-to-expand group like ours to break away from guide services, than to learn how to set up a rope yourself?  I love guides, but top-rope set-up is great skill to have, and will save time, annnnd?  Money. 

 

In addition to all these wonderful things, we will start a regular gym rotation, a monthly dinner meetup, and attend the occasional vegetarian cooking class!

 

Please be sure to keep your eye on this group- a lot of wonderful gyms and companies have offered us DISCOUNTS, so pay attention, and tell your friends!

 

Lastly, starting October 1st, a yearly due of $5 will be implemented.  That's less than 50 cents a month, and less than 1 cent per day.  This money will be used to offset the price of running this meetup; should we get more members, all leftover money will be used (after discussion within the group), to buy t-shirts, take trips...etc.

 

Please feel free to post any suggestions you have in the message board.

 

Climb on!
