NATIONAL CONFERENCE July 7-11, 2010, Lander, WY
As is our tradition, our “even” year National Conference will be held in the Rocky Mountain Region in 2010. The conference will be at along side of the 17th Annual International Climbers’ Festival in Lander, Wyoming, July 7-11. (http://climbersfestival.org/). SRCFC has been asked to do a burrito feed for 250 folks at the event on Saturday afternoon/early evening. Board member, Steve Hughes, will be sharing on how to have a “God Talk.” Climbing, worship and hanging out with climbers! Does it get better than that?
The Climbing Sinks Canyon and Wild Iris are limestone areas of moderate to hard sport climbing on limestone. Check out the climbing at www.mountainproject.com.
The Camping Lander City Park (3rd & Fremont St.) among towering Cottonwood trees. Drinking water, toilets, tables and dogs are welcome. Free camping with ICF ticket.
