Thanks for the motivational email. I have not climbed very much... mostly in
fits and starts... so I don't ever remember anything when I come back to it.
Obviously I don't have any of my own equipment either. So, other than not
having equipment or experience, there's really no reason I couldn't climb.
If I could dribble or shoot I'd be a good basketball player too.
That said... I am thinking I may try and meet up with the group next
weekend. Thanks for the push.
Have a great weekend.

> Hi Everyone!
> My name is Sydney and I am the new Assistant Organizer of the Rock
Climbing Meetup. I just looked through the LOOOOONG list of members of this
group - 246 members and growing - and one thing struck me as odd. So many of
the members wrote that they were eager to meet new people to climb with and
yet we never see them at meetups.
> Almost 15 of us are heading down to Luverne, MN this weekend to climb at
Blue Mound State Park. The trip is sponsored by MCA but all climbers are
welcome. Next weekend, Saturday 13Jun, we are having a meetup at Taylor's
Falls. A full day of climbing with fun to be had by all. Now some of you may
only go to VE and are happy with that but I have a suspicion that many of
you are hesitating to climb on REAL rock because you're afraid you don't
know what to do, or you're afraid you don't know anyone, or you don't
remember the knots, or you don't have a ride, or ... the list goes on and
on. Come on, just do it. Show up a week from Saturday and let's have fun! If
you need a ride, note that on the message board and we will work that out.
If you don't have a rope, come anyway, we will have plenty of anchors set
up. You will have plenty of folks willing to help brush up your belaying
> This group can only be as successful as it's members allow it to be,
That's YOU. Come join us and have some FUN.
