    Hey Dean, thanks for your comment. As a new member of the group, you may not be aware that the Meet up site actually cost about $240 a year in fees. The meet up site is free, because I pay for it. If you read the about section of the meet up, I want to keep it free for people to meet others. Kaf Adventures, my company, actually offers professional educational courses to support the safety and enjoyment of rock climbing for people and the entire to group to enjoy if they want to. Nothing disingenuous, only an opportunity to build a skill set with a set of professional eyes that climb and support education. Your choice if you want to join, I would be honored to have you. I hope you are able to enjoy the meet up and we need more organizers!

      Hi Mick,

      Recently, I posted a few comments on the board. Will this meet up cost money to attend?

      Mick, Thank you for your response. and i would love to do any climbing i can while the weather still permits. but yeah i am still a little confused. I must be misunderstanding you. You say the climbing location costs you $240/yr. But the meetup is free for any of us to "meet others"... However, your for-profit company also offers an education course of the same name as this meetup's title ("rock climbing 201"), at the same site... at the same time... which costs $298?... So we can go to the place for free, because you generously allow people to come (thank you)... and if they want (this is what i am unclear on) they can pay $298 for gear and training... and what if they dont want to pay 300bux? Will we be climbing in like... two diff groups? are the paying customers somehow segregated from the non-paying customers? Please clarify. Thank you.

    Had to postpone last weekends trip, due to a work climbing accident. Glad to see you have another outing this summer season!

      Wait, $300 course. Gah! I think I'll have to bail for now. Keep climbing and thanks for the opportunity.

    I just found out that this is not as much of a "meetup" as it is a $300 training course. I am still interested in this in the future, but it feels disingenuous to hide the price behind a "more information" link.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
