Thanks for all the help!

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.

2016 YKCC Annual General Meeting – Nov. 30

Hello YKCC Members!

Annual General Meeting

Date: Wednesday, November 30th
When: 6 PM
Where: Library Meeting Room
Eats: Free pizza

Why:
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!
