Climbing and Rappelling Trip
Pilot Mountain State Park
...a one day trip October 27, 2001
MEET: Venture Crew 444 will meet on Saturday, October 27th at Port City Shopping Center Parking Lot @ 7:30pm We will need to pack the rental van(s). We will leave any cars in the lot and have Mooresville Police Department keep an eye on them while we are gone. A better alternative is to have parents carpool and drop off participants and pick them up when we return Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
DEPARTURE: Will be at 8:00 pm SHARP!!
RETURN TIME: on Saturday will be around 7:00 pm
We will be meeting Derek Miller's Crew at Pilot Mountain State Park at around 10:00 am
MONEY: At the present time, I do not know even the approximate number of participants. We will rent a van or more if needed and split the cost of transportation and fuel. Your share will not be more than $20 so bring at least that amount.
First-time participants will also need to pay the $12 Venture Crew membership dues to be eligible for this trip. Checks for $12 should be made payable to "Venture Crew 444" and are due before departure on Saturday.
LOGISTICS: Bring your lunch and snacks ( to be packed in a day bag) and any climbing gear that you may have. We do have Group Gear including Rope, webbing and a couple of harnesses. Bring Gloves if you have them also.
SAFETY: The advisors and chaperones will give full attention to the safety of all participants, but it is EVERYONE's responsibility to think and act in a manner, which places SAFETY FIRST. Participants who cannot follow the guidelines set forth by the advisors should stay home.
CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT: DO bring extra clothes (think LAYERED clothing for warmth, as it will be cool in the morning and ALL DAY. The forecast is calling for the temperature not to get out of the 50's and will be around 32 in the early morning with a brisk North wind. You should consider packing a small flashlight, BRING YOUR LUNCH, A WATER BOTTLE, your unbridled enthusiasm, indefatigable curiosity, and your Climbing Karhma.
