Edgeworks Climbing Newsletter
June 2006

Hello Friends of Edgeworks!
We are pleased to announce the first edition
of the Edgeworks Climbing Newsletter! It has
been almost two years since we first opened
our doors and it has amazed us to see the community that has been created and grown
from the roots of our walls. We are surrounded daily by strong climbers, strong friends and a strong community who thrive on each others
drive, motivation and excitement. This
community (you!) is very important to us and
we want to keep in touch with you with this newsletter!

Through this newsletter we hope to share with
you the happenings and events of Edgeworks and its members as well as additional information that will help you become a stronger climber and help you further enjoy what Edgeworks has to offer.

Thank you for your amazing support and we hope to see you at Edgeworks Climbing soon!

Tod Bloxham and the Edgeworks Climbing Staff

This Month at Edgeworks!
We've dreamed of it, you've asked for it, and on June 5th we're getting it; we're getting rid of the gravel and installing a new padded foam carpet floor! In order to get all the gravel removed and the floor installed, Edgeworks will be closed June 5th - June 9th; programs and yoga classes will still run as scheduled. Come by on June 10th and experience our new floor!

New Floor - No More Gravel!
No more clouds of gravel dust, no more dirty shoes, no more gravel prints on your back, at least not at Edgeworks! On June 5th we are getting rid of our dusty dirty gravel and installing a new padded foam carpet floor. Do cartwheels, lie on your back, or just enjoy the clean air; it'll be like hanging out at the beach at your favorite crag! We will reopen with a new floor on June 10th!
