Rock Climbing at the NJ Rock Gym

Posted by Craig DeSantis on November 20th, 2009

I don’t believe any of the 19 Craigmeurites left the Rock Gym without a sense of personal accomplishment yesterday evening (as well as aching muscles).  We had several members in attendance that had zero climbing experience – most have a hard time taking three steps on a ladder to change a light-bulb.  Thanks largely to the instruction, encouragement and patience of the Rock Gym’s Belay Staff they were reaching the top of 20 foot walls on the easier routes their first or second attempts and quickly moved to attempting more difficult climbs with success.  Main topics of conversation at a local watering hole afterwards were ‘when to visit again’ and ‘stretching goals to attempt more difficult climbs’.  Between the hired Belay Staff and several members are certified there was never a wait to get on a rope and climb.  The only time people were not climbing was they decided to rest.  Ken – Thanks for this suggestions and all the organizing that goes along with it.

Stay tuned for some great pics and videos…

Bowling/Pizza Party – 2009 – Recap

Posted by Craig DeSantis on November 10th, 2009

Another fun-filled event…

This year’s Bowling and Pizza Party saw a great turnout of about 40 Members and friends.  Although clearly posted as a start time of 7:45 over a half dozen anxious partiers arrived before 7:00 and some as early as 6:00.   Players completed two full games or more each including at least one ghost player – Pooky.   Congratulations to Kyle Ticotin on scoring the highest of the night – 198 – well done!

As an interesting observation, is it possible that the curse has been lifted?  DT attended a Craigmeur Event and there were no side trips to the hospital…  However, there was a fender bender in the parking lot – some may still be a bit skeptical.

Our thanks to Larry Ticotin for all the organizing – lanes, food, etc…
