CNS Meeting Minutes: January 8th, 2010

CNS is a proud sponsor of the second Nova Scotian Tour de Bloc competition for 2009-10. It will be held at Ground Zero climbing gym on the 13th of February and promises to be an very exciting event with lots of surprises.
The climbing wall at West Kings high school has finally been completed with a aid of CNS funding. This project engaged many of the students who helped to build the wall and now get to learn a how to climb on their complete project. In order to help introduce the intricacies of rock climbing to student at the high school three CNS board members will be visiting the school on the 25th of January. This visit will involve a route setting clinic and a basic introduction to climbing technique and training. Furthermore, a copy of Eastern Tide will be shown and latter given to the school; this movie depicts some of the most intriguing, fun and difficult bouldering in Nova Scotia.
Major Thanks to Heather Bray for sending out the holiday thanks you letters to boulder fest sponsors !!
Due to the unfavourably warm weather in Nova Scotia lately ice climbing have been limited but CNS is still hoping for some colder weather in order to hold ice daze again this year. Possible between late January to early February.
