Running a sucessful meetup group like this takes a lot of time and planning. I have handled the operations as best as I can for 4 months and am very grateful to the Event Organizers I have and to everyone else who has chipped in to make this a great club. That said, I really need more Event Organizers because I need to step back and spend less time organizing. Also, I will be out of state the last two weeks of August and am hoping that others can run some events while I'm gone.
I would like to find about 4 more people willing to help out in this way. All I ask of any one EO is that you commit to running at least one event per month. Qualifications to be an EO are: friendly personality, willingness to teach others when necessary, ability to lead sport to at least 5.8, trad leading experience preferable, anchor and safety knowledge a must!
Anyone who is interested in becoming an Event Organizer, please e-mail me through this website. Thanks!
We are far and away the most active climbing meetup in CO! a group where local climbers can meet for fun, friendship and adventure; a place to find climbing partners and explore the great areas that Colorado has to offer. Whether you are an experienced climber rocking the sharp end, someone wanting to learn the sport, or anyone else in between, all skill levels are welcome!
New climbers please go to the Message Board under the Discussions tab and read the posts "Note for local climbing events" and "Note for climbers new to the sport."
New members please note: You have 30 days free membership to come to events and check us out. After that you are expected to pay your one-time membership dues of $10. PLEASE DO NOT SET UP RECURRING PAYMENTS. I will mark you as exempt once you have paid the initial $10. That will entitle you to indefinite membership in RCCS. I use the term "indefinite" because there may come a time in the future when funds begin to run out. If that happens, I may need to request further payment from existing members. But so long as we continue to grow all members will be able to enjoy this group without paying anything beyond the initial fee. If dues are not paid after 30 days your profile will be deleted from this site. Thank you for your understanding.
