Colorado Springs Happy Hour Wednesday 9/4

Postby Wilderness_hike » Wed Aug 21, 2013 2:28 pm

The last Springs happy hour was a great success and a lot of people commented that they would like to see more of them. So let's do it again. Wednesday September 4th 6:30 pm at Colorado Mountain Brewery in Old Colorado City. 600 S 21st St Colorado Springs, CO 80904. They have an upstairs area, and once I have a general idea of attendance I'll see if we can arrange for some space up there. Also we had some trouble identifying everyone last time, should I bring some name tags? (or would anyone like to volunteer to bring them?)

I'll go! I couldn't make the last one, so I'm glad to see there is another one planned. Thanks for organizing it.

Count me in!!! It was so much fun last time that I wouldn't miss it! Looking forward to seeing some new faces, as well as catching up with others :-D

Wilderness_hike, I'd be happy to bring some name tags, so that we can all remember real names as well as 14er names! See you all then!

Looking forward to it.

Would anyone like to do a climbing thing in the Garden or RRCOS before heading over? You know, it's only 10 minutes from there. I'd be glad to host.

Maybe I'll swing by and bring my hiking partner. It's actually quite a ways from where I live. Do most of you live on the West side?

Yes, I can get to the top of the chutes on my bike from my house in about 25 minutes.

Last one was fun. I'll try and attend.

Awesome, I'll be there
"Of course, inside each one of us is the ambition to reach the summit, to realize that you are stronger than obstacles, that it is within your power to do something uncommon and indeed impossible for most people. But one must be prepared to face those obstacles..."-Ed Viesturs

"When I was a child, I felt there was something I had to find before I died. I imagined it as some lost, golden country, glittering on the other side of the mist across our neighbor's fields, hidden within the shadows behind our stone wall—some place beyond the fixed patterns of society, the grey chronology that led inexorably to death. In my twenties, on my first free solo, the light seemed to shatter through me, and the sky pour down the rock. Like so many climbers, immersed in that sudden, radiant awareness of now, I've had that brief and total conviction that each moment is both fleeting and eternal"-Katie Ives
