Co-op meeting at the new gym!

The Minnesota Climbing Co-op is meeting this Sunday, Oct 3rd, at 6:00pm at the potential location of our new gym (currently in lease negotiation now). All climbers and friends are welcome to come take a look at the space, find out more about the Co-op, and get on our members list.

We plan to share a summary review of the Articles of Information and the Bylaws, followed by a short question and answer/feedback session. There is still a ton of work to do and true member involvement is what will make this really succeed. Please come out and show your support, get info, and see our awesome gym space. Thanks and hope to see you there,
Your friends at the MN Climbing Co-opSunday, October 3rd

The First F***'n Fantastically Fun Fall Flash Fest




Kris & Lynn's
2201 Lambert Ave
Mound's View, MN

Hey, remember that awesome bouldering competition we had back in July to benefit the Minnesota Bouldering Co-op? Yeah? Well, we're having another one! This one even has a name with lots of alliteration, isn't that just special?
All the proceeds from this comp will help us pay our lawyer and get started on finally building the gym.

As always, all levels of climbers are welcome-- our famously complicated half skill/half luck scoring system makes it possible for anyone to win, and we'll have sweet prizes for men's and women's divisions, as well as a random raffle.

$20 lets you spend this delightful fall afternoon brutally crushing phenomenal problems, and we'll be sure to keep your bellies full of refreshments and schwag. Well, we probably won't make you eat the raffle items. But we will give away tons of good stuff.

Come on out, bring your friends and lovers. Don't have any friends or lovers? Well, meet some new ones here!

Bring some warm clothes; this is an outdoor comp, donchaknow. Friction on plastic outside is good this time of year, right? We'll have tarps to string up, so this is happening rain or shine.
