March Meeting

Last night was the march meeting held at Ibex climbing gym in Blue Springs. We had a good turnout with 25 or so people showing up. The much awaited slide show from Jeremy Collins was postponed for the April meeting. If you do attend you may see pictures like this one.
So we had a quick discussion about upcoming events and went downstairs to pull on some plastic. A hands on demonstration was given on setting and equalizing anchors, in which 6 club members paid close attention in preparation for their upcoming trip to the Red Rock Rendezvous. There were several new climbers in attendance; Rusty, Allen, and Tom.

The April meeting will tentatively be held at the North Face Store on the Plaza. Confirmation of this location, time and date will be posted soon. Also the Spring club trip to Arkansas has been set for April 18th and 19th. Natalie Neal is working on the details, but right now we are looking at Horshoe Canyon Ranch. As always the trip will be lots of fun, with plenty of topropes, Saturday nights dinner provided by the club and possibly a portion of the climbing and camping fee. I will post updates as Natalie nails down the details.

The May meeting is going to be at Cliff Drive weather permitting on Tuesday the 5th. There will be topropes set up for a variety of grades and we will go somewhere nearby afterwards for drinks and food.
