Kitsap Climbing Summit PDF Print E-mail
Date: Saturday, September 20
Time: 12 PM
Location: Kitsap Cabin
If you support Kitsap Branch climbing, please plan to attend this summit.  Main activities will be 1) review of Kitsap Branch courses, 2) recognition of efforts throughout this last year, 3) calendar planning for the coming year, and 4) selection of leadership.  If you intend on continuing as a member of the Climbing Roster at Kitsap, you should participate in the planning of future activities and programs.  This will be the annual venue to do this.
Questions -
  • What courses will be offered this coming year?  How will they be staffed?  A suggestion to start an Alpine Scrambling Course in October is on the table.
  • What has been accomplished this year, and to what extent?  Recognition will be presented.
  • How can courses be timed to offer opportunities to current and future climbers?
  • Who will fill the Climbing Committee chair position?  (Mike is resigning.)
A lunch with beverages will be provided for those that RSVP by Saturday, September 14.  There will be door prizes for those that come on time.  Must be present to win.
