So I was asked by a number of people to put this together as a club event this year, so I am going to make that happen. As I will do the 7 Summits thing next year in 2014 as well.
Please read the entire write up:
I was going to get us some T-Shirts, but since Registration is so much, we will forgo the T-Shirts this time around.
It is $50.00 to register. Be prepared.
I have heard this will sell out quickly.
