As you may be aware, Sierra Mountaineering Group (SMG) has evolved from a group led only by myself and run solely on donations into a member-led format offering free events to dues paying members. This helps me keep the group going and significantly lowers the overall cost to members. I am encouraged by the response to the changes and believe SMG will see even more events in 2011 than we did our first year. Thank you to everyone who continues to make this meetup group worth getting involved in! You guys rock...(and ice climb)!January 1, 2011 marks the official deadline for paying your yearly membership dues of $12
. You can pay them online
or by check. Please contact me separately for the mailing address if you need that option.
What you will continue to recieve by renewing your membership:
- Opportunity for free year-round, professionally organized day and overnight mountaineering events
at a wide range of locations from Mt. Shasta to San Diego.
- Access to over 270 mountaineering enthusiasts
to find climbing partners and friends who actually climb
- All of our custom built curriculum, gear lists, information, and maps
pertinent to the entire spectrum of mountaineering
- Perks of membership such as our gear cache, discounts, access to expert advice, discussions, forum for posting trip ideas, carpooling, and good times with other adventurous folks
I know many people joined SMG when we operated on donations only. It is my hope that everyone will decide to continue their membership by paying their 2011 membership dues
. If you haven't already done so, please take care it today. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you!
