New River Gorge: Memorial Day Weekend
Looking to get out town and climb during Memorial Day Weekend? Pining for more climbing after Cinco de Mayo at Seneca?
PATC-MS is organizing a three-night event at the New River Gorge from 22-25 May 2015. The Club has reserved (but not paid for) a group site at Chestnut Creek Campground in Lansing, WV, starting on Friday night, 22 May; check out is Monday, 25 May. You have to register to attend.
The New River Gorge is a mecca for single pitch routes on both sport and trad. This is not an instructional clinic/event. It is strongly suggested that you arrange for a partner prior to the weekend. Do not expect that others will take you in their party.
Note that camping and parking at the group campsite is limited. Please arrange tents and carpools. Coordination can be done using the following link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JDtbBgwA6fQktE_-gIk_vRKQI2skZAH6pynaRy3mlYk/edit#gid=0
As a heads-up, the AAC is also organizing a women’s climbing weekend (NRG Crush), which will be based at the AAC campground.
What you are responsible for: paying for camping ($10 per night person if paying in cash; $11 per night per person if paying by credit card) when you arrive at Chestnut Creek, bringing all personal camping/climbing gear and food, arranging for your own climbing partner, and organizing a car pool.
What the Club is paying: We'll also do a Saturday evening dinner at a local place in Fayetteville (place TBD) with the Club covering up to $200 of our total for the night. Bring some small cash to help cover any overage.
Cancellation Policy: If you can no longer make the event, please change your registration as soon as possible. This allows people on the wait list to join. If you fail to show for an event and do not cancel within 48hours, you will be considered a no show. Club members who have 3 or more no shows will not be able to register for future events for a period of one year whether it's due to failure to cancel or the person does not show up for the event at all.
PATC-MS Member Only policy: This event is for members of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club-Mountaineering Section only, in good standing with liability waivers on file, unless otherwise stated.
