News and Events from Twin Cities Rock Climbing Meetup

Hey Climbers,


A few things from the TCRC Meetup:


- Just announced: Passion for Flashin' 2012 date set for February 18th.  Details to follow, event page here.


- This Tuesday, I am hosting an Intro to the MNCC night at the climbing co-op.  The cost is $10, but Meetup climbers that attend this night will receive a voucher for Free Admission to the co-op at a later date.  Event page here.


- VE continues it's search for route setters at both Minneapolis and St Paul.  If you have interest, check out this link.  If you are already setting, USA Climbing is hosting a Level 1 setting clinic at VEM Jan 21-22.


- Climb4Kids is rapidly approaching.  Form or join a team and go get those donations!  Event page here.


- Reminder to climbers joining VE Open Climb Nights: everyone arrives at the gym at different times.  It is very difficult to walk into a crowded gym and find the Meetup group.  Plan ahead!  The Meetup group does not move around the gym as one pack.  If you are new and don't know anyone, take a moment during the week to email the event host or someone that has RSVP'd yes and make a plan to find them.  Discuss what color clothes you will be wearing or trade phone numbers.  You are participating in rock climbing, an inherently dangerous sport, if you can strap on a harness and suspend yourself from a rope, then you can certainly reach out to someone you don't know before heading to the gym!  Help us help you find the group!  If all else fails, go to Pizza Luce on a Thursday night after 10 and look for the sweaty, chalky people.


That is all I know for now.




PS.  although it is January, it feels like spring out there which has me thinking... TCRC Meetup continues to look for climbers that are interested in playing organizational roles.  Think you might be interested in organizing outdoor climbs, camp/climb weekends, or gym events?  Want to make our long standing gym nights a better experience for new climbers?  Please contact Sean.
