SportRock - Alexandria
Hey guys! We're going to have a "the federal offices are closed but we desperately need to get out of our residences" meetup. I know it's last minute, but I wanted to make sure that Sportrock was going to be open. This is also our last chance to climb at SR Alexandria before it is closed for the competition this weekend. My name is Katie Hammer; I have brown curly hair that I pull back in a ponytail and an athletic build. I'll be on one of the cardio machines at the entrance of the gym for 10 minutes or so after 1 to meet with people as they arrive. I'd prefer for people to be at least top-rope belay certified for this meetup, as I'd like us all to have plenty of chances to climb.
Important notes: Metro is not running above ground service on Thursday 2/11, as they're still clearing snow from the tracks. For those people driving, PLEASE be careful out on the roads while commuting to the gym, and carpool if you can due to the limited parking. Hope to see some of you there! I can only stay until about 4 pm, but feel free to come to the gym later if you want (please indicate that on your RSVP). Climb on! - Katie Also: I live in the Shirlington area if anyone nearby would like a ride. You'll have to let me know this by noon Thursday, at the latest.
