TCRC Meetup Fall Social

Hey Climbers!

It's that time of the year, time to reconnect over some climbing and food!

Come climb at VE ST PAUL tonight and then head over to our Fall Social.  We are holding the Social at SWEENEY'S SALOON (on Dale south of 94).

We are having a raffle tonight to serve as a fundraiser for the TCRC Meetup.  Organizer dues cost $144 annually and this helps offset those costs.  Additionally, this year we are purchasing a banner to hang at campsites and t-shirts that will be for sale at the Social.  See below for raffle details.

Here are a few PHOTOS from our Fall Social last year and PHOTOS of our Spring Social earlier this year. I'll be getting to SWEENEY'S at 9:30 - meet me in the back room. Come on out and let's make the Fall Social a great night!



Door Prizes

Everyone that attends will receive a door prize ticket.  Winners will be drawn throughout the night for your choice of available t-shirt.  Must be present to win.


I've gotten some great prizes this year.  Tickets will be for sale for $1 each payable by cash, check, or Pay Pal.  There is a chance that I will have a Square at the event and be able to take credit cards too.  You will be able to enter your tickets into jars specific to the prizes you want a chance to win.  If you can't attend, you can order raffle tickets early using Pay Pal and designate which prizes you want your tickets associated with (email Sean for details).  Need not be present to win.

      Hi Sean, I am currently assisting Mad Rock with marketing here in the Midwest. I wanted to donate a free pair of Mad Rock Climbing shoes to the raffle. Any Shoe/ Any Size. I have contact Matt Holland about it and thought I'd mention it to you. We are also interested in possibly sponsoring the meetup group in the future (to be determined). It would be great to meet some of the coordinators of the group tonight. You can reach me at[masked] with any questions, but I will be at the meetup tonight with a certificate for the raffle.

    How is the raffle going to work? Are names going to be drawn out for each prize? Do the prizes have to be climbing related? I was thinking I could donate something for the ladies into the raffle?
