Slide Show and Fundraiser

I'll be hosting a fundraiser for new bouldering terrain at the Sticks and Stones Climbing Gym on Main Street in Rexburg, Idaho on Saturday, December 8th at 7pm. The slide show will focus on my recent rock climbing trip to Kalymnos, Greece. To offer something for everyone, i will also showcase a few of the mixed alpine routes here in Idaho and talk about the evolution of these routes. Hopefully by the end of the evening you'll walk away with a bit more community spirit and motivation to get after whatever you dream of.

The fundraiser is the main focus of the event. A $2 admission for the slide show will provide you with one raffle ticket. You can purchase additional raffle tickets for $5 to increase your chances of winning climbing ropes, clothing, shoes, and other items donated by Mammut, Petzl, Liberty Mountain Sports, KLU, Metolius, Kayland and various other sponsors. All of the money raised will be donated to the construction efforts and the purchase of actual padding! Please bring your wallets, tell your friends, and support this worthwhile cause. For years, Sticks and Stones has supported the local talent in Eastern Idaho, often at the expense of not growing their business. It's time to give back and provide future climbers a place to get strong, meet other like minded individuals, and continue the growth of climbing here in Eastern Idaho.

The venue has limited space so come prepared to get close with your neighbors. It should be a fun evening of mingling and story telling. I hope to see you there...
