The New River Rendezvous, now one of the premier climbing events in the U.S., has announced this year’s dates – May 16-18, 2008.
There will be a few changes this year including pre-registration limiting attendees to 700 (last year was around 1200 climbers) and parking passes will now be needed.
Registration will be live on March 1, 2008.
We will be requiring everyone to pre-register online for a small fee. The days of giving it all away are behind us. It’s not something that we want to do because it means more work for us, but there’s no gettin’ around it. Why you ask? A couple of reasons…The NPS has asked us to limit the number of people who attend the event because the Brunwood is busting out of it’s seams. That means we need to count people and weed out the riff-raff. And B, we also have to kick down for event insurance, and if you know anything about the insurance industry, you know it ain’t cheap.
The event schedule looks to be the same as last year, so everyone should be in for a good time.
