A big shout out to Calgary Climbing Centre Stronghold and all the volunteers who helped make this weekend so successful! We couldn't have done it without you!
Many thanks to all who donated to our hugely successful Silent Auction! Over 3000$ was raised in support of the Calgary Youth Climbing Scholarship Fund! Come back soon for details on our next event! Happy Climbing to all! See you in the mountains this summer!
Another excellent personal donation!!!! Thanks to Adam and Andrea Juska for your contribution to the CCC youth scholarship silent auction.
These two have donated 6 bottles of wine from their personal collection :) We are planning on selling 50/50 tickets for this package!!!!
There's a little story behind this one....
As I've been updating this website I've been linking the site to facebook pages that have supported our event (like Outdoor Research, Stanley, Flashed etc...). A fellow Outdoor Research athlete, Bill Dudley reached out and offered up this donation!
Really incredible since it came directly out of his pocket, also he lives in the USA so shipping wasn't cheap and he covered that too.
A HUGE thank you Bill on behalf of the organizers and the youth who will benefit from your generosity!
Just picked up this bad boy yesterday from flashed! We've got a Temple pad up for grabs!!! It's blue and red :)
The temple will help you out with all of your falling needs :)
Just a quick note to say that friday night, Knut, Sam, Kelly and I got together, sorted through all of our product and built some awesome packages!!!!!! We've got some 'his and hers' packages, the 'trailer park trash' package, the 'healthy snack package', the 'cold day at the crag' package 'Buddah package' and more!!!!
Can't wait to see you all out there!!!!!!
Stanley has generously offered up some of their best product for this auction! No climber should be without one of these hydration systems- they are seriously built for life and can withstand a day at the crag (or the gym).
We have 4 flasks, 4 water bottles (one handed and push button), 4 one handed vacuum mugs and 3 two-cup thermos mugs!
Check out the 'what's up for grabs' link for a more detailed picture of each of these items
