Hey T448 - 

There is a climbing event scheduled for July 30.  I am reaching out to get you to check your calendars and vacation plans to see if you would be able to attend or if you are interested in attending.  I would like to get a head count so that I can get it on the rock gym's calendar and plan for the appropriate size group.
