Climbing at Great Western Power Company, Food & Drinks @ Beeryland
We're bringing the East Bay band back together--this Monday, we're going to meet at the TouchStone sister gym "Great Western Power Company" in Oakland! Summary: Come climb with the GoBoldly community. If you're new to climbing, meet at the training ropes at 6pm, climb til 8-830ish, and we'll meet at "Beeryland" (a.k.a Telegraph Oakland Beer Garden) at 8:30p for food and drink. If you arrive at a time other than 6pm, just leave a chat here and one of us will link you up with the group. Give us a few minutes to chat back, and we might be up on a wall or belaying someone... If you need to take a belay test, please show up 15 minutes early to practice and take the test. Details: GoBoldly is organizing a night of social climbing to connect climbing enthusiasts, startup lovers and adventurers. If you've never climbed before, this is a great opportunity to come get some training and meet some climbers who will help you get started. If you're an experienced climber, come meet the GoBoldly team and let's knock out some huge climbs! Climbing will start shortly after 6pm and run till 8-830ish. We will walk over to "Beeryland" or some other local bar after climbing for some food and beers. Make sure to take a good look at our pictures before you come & introduce yourself. If you can't find any of us at the event, feel free to comment here to find the group. Everyone is responsible for their own entrance and gear rental. The day pass fee is $20 and if you need to rent gear, it's an additional $5. This all goes away if you buy a membership! Lastly, it's already pretty hard to find people at GWPC--so if this your first time with the group & your meetup image isn't a clear view of your face (w/o sunglasses), it'd be helpful if you change it so we can look for you. If you're a regular, it's still helpful so new people can find us. Thanks!

Principles

(stolen (with love and gratitude) from the Burning Man org):

Inclusion

We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Gifting

We are devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

Self-reliance

We encourage our members to discover, exercise and rely on their inner resources.

Communal Effort

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.

Leaving No Trace

Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Participation

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.

Immediacy

We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
