Bag-It-Night 2018

»Posted on Jun 3, 2018

Hello BOEALPS members!
Have you been pondering over your weekends this summer, wondering what to climb and with who? Well look no further – the annual Bag-It-Night is coming up on June 19th and we hope you will all join us for another fun BOEALPS social. This is an opportunity to both plan and join a variety of different climbs throughout the summer, meet new climbing friends and continue to push yourself!
What:  Bag-It-Night

When:  June 19th 2018

6:30 – 10PM (Last Call 9:45PM)

Where:  Pyramid Alehouse
Ambrose Bittner, will give a presentation at Bag-It-Night on climbing Mount Rainier. Ambrose is the founder and director of the annual Mt. Rainier Climb for Himilayan Children. He is also the former BOEALPS president and former ACC Head Instructor. AND he climbed with Fred Becky. You won’t want to miss an opportunity glean valuable information from him.
Mt Rainer Presentation will start around 8PM
Food and Adult Beverages provided
Parking is complimentary
If you are interested in leading an adventure, don’t feel the need for it to be an ice ax and crampons kind of climb – get creative! It could be a scramble fest like the Sawtooth Traverse, a Larch March through the Enchantments, a summit of Mount Rainier, a costumed climb of a local peak or anything in between. The real purpose is to continue connecting with other club members, to have fun and to put into practice all the amazing skills you have learned in the different BOEALPS classes.
If you are just interested in climbing and letting someone else do the planning then this is also the perfect event for you – all you have to do is come sign up for the climbs that sound fun! Even if we aren’t all in the same classes (BCC, ACC, BRC) we are all part of the BOEALPS community – come share your beta, your experience, your stoke and your passion for climbing with one another.
To sign up for a climb you need:
•A liability form on file (must renew each year). Fill out at this link: http://boealps.org/forms/events/release-of-liability-form/
•To graduate from the BOEALPS Basic Climbing Class (BCC) or have equivalent experience
To lead a climb you must be a BOEALPS club member (ie. a Boeing employee or family member)
