“Float the Boat” 2018 Activities

Friday, February 23th

Float the Boat Pre-Party is Back! Thanks to Concourse Athletic Club, we’ll have a great night of good food, drinks and community before your favorite ATL outdoor bouldering competition! Before our guest speaker, Sam England, takes us on a visual adventure to Baffin Island, we’ll be opening up a group discussion to talk about our beloved Boat Rock.This community meeting is free for all, in light of recent events at Boat Rock, we wanted to reach out as your local climbing advocacy group, and engage a community discussion. We want to keep Boat Rock a safe and fun place for the ATL community. Two heads are better than one, so let’s talk! We’ll also have delicious food, adult beverages, and a raffle available for $10 (see ticket information below) or $12 at the door.

We’re excited to welcome local Southeast climbing, Sam England, as our guest speaker. In the summer of 2017, Ryan Little and Sam spent over a month on a climbing expedition to Baffin Island off the Arctic northeastern coast of Canada. There, they established a route, “Marooned at Midnight” (VI A3 5.11R), on an unclimbed big-wall in a region never previously explored by climbers. Sam will be showcasing photos, videos, and stories from the trip.

6:30 Doors Open, Food & Beverage Available (tickets info below)
7:00 – 8:00 Community Meeting
8:30-9:30 Sam England Slideshow and Raffle

Come on out to show your love for Boat Rock and the SCC.
