Hello! 


Your Coop's organizing board - along with our other incredible volunteers -  have been hard at work on the project. Neither rain, hail nor snow have dampened progress, nay, dismal weather and circumstance only stoke the flame of the Mt Washington Valley Climbers Cooperative. So hearken unto the recent exploits of the Coop and rejoice;

Coming Up! 
Saturday 16th February, 7pm, at Tuckermans Brewing in Conway.
 
Wild Northeast Magazine is throwing a launch party for their winter/spring edition on 
The night is dedicated to local adventurers on stage, sharing their stories, short films and slideshows. There will also be a mega raffle, social hour and dance party. 

$5 at the door gets you in, food and Tucks brewing's beer will be available. Should be a ripper of an evening.

Best of all, Wild Northeast have chosen to donate proceeds of the raffle to the Coop!
 
Check out their facebook event page for more details.
Here is what we have been up to!
Tuckermans Brewing hosted the Coop's january 11th evening of festivities with accomplished local alpinist and writer Michael Wejchert. Revelers were treated to a great presentation, big raffle, great beers and awesome company. Through raffle proceeds and kind donations on the evening, we were able to raise more than a thousand dollars toward the startup fund, thanks all!
The Coop was out raising awareness at the 26th annual MWV Ice Festival at the Saturday night festivities at Theater in the Wood. It was a great night chatting with folk, taking donations, and catching a great presentation from big mountain crusher Anne Gilbert Chase. We most importantly tried to remind ice-climbers that an indoor bouldering center like ours would reduce the need (or at least provide a local alternative) for swinging tools and excess suffering in the pursuit of winter time climbing....
The Boston Rock Gym has sadly shut down after 30 years of operation. In light of this they very kindly offered to donate their big 7x15 foot crash pads to the Coop - a $25,000 saving on our eventual build out. The pad salvage would not have been possible without Walden Timberworks donating us the use of their truck, flat bed trailer and CEO for the evening. And so the BRG, or at least a big foamy chunk of it, is fated to live on in the eventual Coop.
DONATE
We are continuing to work towards our short term goal of $4,000 for first and last months rent. We are getting close! As we move toward our goal, we are still looking for donations, pledges and help.  

Email any time if you want to contribute any of the above, or have any questions.

Hope to see y'all out and about soon. 

Love, 
The Coop.
