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.
City budgets $160K for climbing wall at Yellowknife Fieldhouse
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.
Remember to come out to City Hall on Thursday, December 8th for the budget deliberations. FREE BEER!
