Last minute information for the Comp today

If you are under 18, you will need to have your parent/guardian sign TWO waivers.
One waiver is for Lynn and Kris' backyard as they are hosting the fundraiser
The second is the waiver for climbing at a MN Climbing Co-op event

Both waivers are available on the web site (at the bottom)

If your parent or guardian will not be with you, you'll have to have them sign them both, and write their address, phone numbers, and relation to you on the waiver.

Closer to the The First F***'n Fantastically Fun Fall Flash Fest

It's almost time for the First F***'n Fantastically Fun Fall Flash Fest, and we some updates for you!

  • There will be a prize for best costume, so be creative!

  • The cost to get into the competition will be $20. Cash or check at the door.

  • Now that we have officially filed with the state, we will be able to begin selling memberships at the competition. The fee to become a member of the co-op is $20 per our bylaws. We are only able to accept cash, or checks at this time.

  • Alex Johnson, by way of 5.10 shoes, will be running a shoe demo for the soon to be released 5.10 Quantum climbing shoes. Awesome!

  • As is seems there will be a lot of people, we ask that you bring lawn chairs, camp chairs, or something to sit on so you can be comfortable when you are not climbing.

  • If you have a crash pad, bring it. The softer the landing, the better for everyone.

Be sure to check the facebook page for the latest, up to the minute information.
