Triassic Cancelled and other practice info

Hi Everyone,

Due to the unusually cold weather we'll have to cancel the trip this weekend. We'll tentatively reschedule for next weekend and hope that it warms up. I'll check the weather for Cleveland, UT and if it's not going to be at least 45 in the sun then we probably won't go.

Also we're going to start toproping tonight and slowly phase out of bouldering. For those who are going to regional competitions we'll continue to have those climbers do primarily bouldering.

christmas, outside trip, and recent stuff

Hi everyone, a couple of important pieces of information

First, our last practice for this year will be Tuesday December 22. Practice will resume on Tuesday January 5th.

Second, next weekend Saturday the 12th we'll be doing an outside trip to a bouldering area called Triassic. It's near Cleveland, UT. It's about a 2.5 hour drive. We'll be going here because it "should" be warm enough to climb. Even at 45 degrees it's usually toasty in the sun. That being said please plan on having clothes for warm or cold weather. We'll leave from the Quarry at 8:30am. Kids will need, lunch, drinks, climbing gear. Good things to bring are: a camera, sunscreen, other items to like when going outdoors.
Also, please note that there will be carpooling going on, but we will need parents to drive. We'll determine exactly how many based on the number of kids going. Please consider making the trip. It's a very cool area to explore and will be a fun day.
We will be returning around 7pm at the Quarry.

Third: we've had some fun things going on in practice. Two new climbers have joined our ranks and we had a birthday to celebrate on Thursday. We'll have a few more bouldering practices and pretty soon we'll be climbing on ropes.
