New Meetup: Roof Party! Celebrating DCMM's First Birthday

Announcing a new Meetup for DC Mountain Madness!

What: Roof Party! Celebrating DCMM's First Birthday

When: Friday, July 9,[masked]:00 PM

Where: E's rooftop (5 min walk from the Dupont Metro)

Believe it or not, DCMM has been around for a year now. We've climbed, hiked, skied, traveled, climbed some more, camped, cooked, drank, and even sang karaoke together. Having started from scratch, we've had 46 meetups in a year (almost a meetup a week -- much credit for this goes to Tania!) and have 160+ members. This is HUGE given that we are a selective group and accept only about 60% of those who apply.

My biggest pride is that we've become a community of like-minded mountain lovers in the area. We get together regularly not only for formally scheduled events, but also on spur-of-the-moment occasions. A year ago, I was not sure this was possible, but today, it's a reality. I don't think we need a better reason to celebrate!

Please join us on Friday July 9 at 7pm for a party! E has graciously offered the roof of her apartment buidling in Dupont (we'll email the address to all Yes RSVPs before the event), and Adam will put together a retrospective of a year-ful of the DCMM photos to be projected on the wall. Your camp mug, bowl and spork are required items. We'll have some drinks and munchies, but please bring your beverage of choice and/or some munchies to share. Please mark your RSVP on what you plan to bring so that we can plan better.

On a personal note, after over six weeks in seven different countries, I can't wait to be home -- and to reconnect with as many of you as possible and plan new adventures together!
