To all the Yellowknife Climbing Club members who have supported our efforts to get a new climbing wall – especially everyone who showed their support by coming to city hall and donning club attire on Dec. 8 – thanks!
Council decided to support the club’s bid for a new climbing wall and is contributing $160,000 to the cause.
The project is estimated to cost $232,050 to build, and the YKCC has approximately $20,000 to donate immediately. The next step will be to raise the remaining $52,000 needed for the project.
Free climbing this Sunday afternoon. A non-perishable food item gets you a 2-for-1 climbing coupon. Thanks to the NWT Recreation and Parks Association for making this event possible.
Hello YKCC Members!
Annual General Meeting
Date: Wednesday, November 30th
When: 6 PM
Where: Library Meeting Room
Eats: Free pizza
The AGM is where we elect board members for the upcoming year, vote on club policy, and decide the club’s direction for the upcoming year. We’ll also be discussing progress on the new climbing wall at the Fieldhouse, and how you can help make it a reality.
It’s important that all members who are able come to the meeting, but we have a proxy form below if you can’t make it. But if you don’t make it, you don’t get pizza…
Did we mention that there will be free pizza?
See you there!
Two important events are coming up:
YKCC Annual General Meeting
Yellowknife Public Library meeting room
City of Yellowknife Budget Deliberations
More details to come later this week for both events, but mark your calendars now.
Thank you to the NWT Recreation & Parks Association for supporting this event!
We will be trying out some new weekend hours at the gym. The gym will now be opened 10 AM-12 PM every 2nd Saturday, beginning this weekend.
Please check the schedule to confirm the gym will be opened as we adjust to these new hours. Thanks!

Many people have questions about our proposal for the City of Yellowknife to build a public climbing wall, so we’ve tried to explain it as best we can.
