Discontinuing monthly Vedge events at BKB

From: Rachelle

Hi all,

I have decided to no longer plan monthly events at Brooklyn Boulders in Gowanus. While I want to be inclusive to people who live all over the city and who have memberships at different gyms, it is simply too much of a burden for my schedule and where I live.

I live 90 minutes from BKB, which makes it a 3-hour roundtrip commute. I don't like the gym enough to pay $32 to climb there and the gym offers no real incentive for groups: other gyms offer discounts and enrollment perks and are much easier to work with from an organizer viewpoint. It becomes frustrating when people don't show to BKB events as I am going a great deal out of my way for very little return: I do not get paid to run Vedge; it actually costs me money!

Because of this, I am no longer going to continue trying to plan events at Brooklyn Boulders. Rock climbing is my passion so I don't want to climb places I don't enjoy!

If anyone loves BKB and wants to organize a Vedge event there, please let me know and I will gladly make you an event host.

In the meantime, I will continue to organize events at gyms and places I enjoy.

Climb on!

Rachelle
