“Another Fun Evening of Rock Climbing!”

25 Apr

Last Tuesday a few of our club members enjoyed an evening of indoor rock climbing at the NJ Rock Gym in Faifield. The evening was spearheaded by our own Ken Fox. Our first time rock climbers trusted the expertise of both Ken Fox and Lee DeSantis as belayers to steady the ropes they were dangling on. Lee’s daughter, Heather conquered new challenges although climbing many times before as well as my daughter Lindsey who has never climbed but loved every minute of it. There was Diane Bogert and Olivier Monod who are also newcomers to the sport. They also enjoyed looking down from the ropes and just hoped they would be able to still ski and bike after dangling 40 feet off the ground. Joe Infusino also joined the group and has climbed before. The evening was then capped off with a drink and snack at the Bonefish Grill. I also joined the group as a pure spectator being on the disabled list, but hope to join in the future. Until next time, Happy Climbing.

It is that time of the year again and some hearty Craigmeur Ski Club members have signed up to peddle their way through the 5 Boros of New York.  The tour keeps selling out earlier every year.  This year sign ups started February 1st and by February 25th the tour sold out. Approximately 30,000 riders take to the car free streets of New York. This is not a bike race – is a traffic free open road tour.  We are all praying for NO rain this year. Those of us who have signed up for the ride will be meeting at the Dunkin Donuts on Route 46 in Denville at 4AM to caravan to Staten Island to make sure we are on the first ferry at 6AM.  We want to get good parking spots on our usual street in Staten Island just outside Fort Wadsworth.
After the ride we will be holding our annual corner street party just outside Fort Wadsworth.  Make sure you bring a folding chair with you.  You might also want to bring another set of clothes to change into after the ride.
Please fill in the sign up sheet with what you are going to bring for the party.  See the list on the link. Drinks are BYOB.

Thank you!
