Cleanup at Pinnacle Rock - Saturday Dec 1st 2012 10:00 - 2:00 PM
Here's your chance to work of some of those thanksgiving calories. Come join the RMF, Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and the Access Fund for a day of cleanup, trail work and erosion control at Pinnacle Rock in Plainville. We will meet at the Starbucks/ Big Y shopping center parking lot @ 10:00 on Sat Dec 1st.
RMF will provide tools, gloves, trash bags, and lunch. If time and weather permits there will be climbing afterwards.
The RMF is going green and publishing our OVERLOOK newsletter in blog form. This will allow us to save on printing and mailing costs while giving us more opportunity to communicate with the Connecticut climbing community. Let us know what you think.
The new issue of Overlook, the RMF quarterly newsletter, is now available to read or download here. We encourage you to read Overlook online instead of printing it out. This distribution change furthers our environmental mission and helps to keep costs down. If you would prefer to continue receiving a paper copy in the mail please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you know that you can always find the most recent and archived issues of Overlook, along with other RMF documents, in the RMF Library?
