News and Events - 5/712
The Spring Social was a big success. Thank you to everyone that came out and participated in the raffle. We raised about 9 months worth of Meetup dues. Some people think that we should have (non-fundraising) social style events on a more regular basis. I agreee! If you are a climber that likes to organize social events, send me an email and we can set you up as an event host so you can create and promote events on our calendar.
