Introduction

Hi, I am a web developer in NYC and I love rock climbing. I think the meet-up idea is great.

What Rachel is saying about this Meetup Group

The Wednesday Meetup used to be the best night of the week at TRC, but due to lack of leadership it has seriously declined. This is the kind of event that really needs a dedicated organizer to welcome the new people, help set people up with climbing partners and foster a sense of community among the members. Without someone in this leadership role it ends up being a bunch of new people wandering around aimlessly hoping that someone might notice them and offer them a belay. After such an awkward experience it is no surprise that the number of people who return after their first Meetup has dropped significantly. Meetup used to be a great way to get new people at the gym, and without it the amount of people on any given night at TRC has clearly dwindled. If TRC expects to compete with all the new gyms in the nearby area, they should really considering making some much needed improvements.
