Red River Reunion Recap

March 25th, 2010 by Josephine

Miguel’s Red River Reunion was a smashing success this spring raising over $2,900 to benefit the RRGCC!  The day began with shoe demos from Evolv and LaSportiva so that climbers could have the best shoes possible to compete in the climbing competition.  Twenty-six people signed up to compete and Rick Bost was ready and waiting with the gates open at Torrent Falls.  Congratulations to the winners & thank you to all who competed!

The RRGCC Sales table was staffed by friendly RRGCC Volunteers: JR Goodwin, Vince Cocciolone, Derrick Powell, Paul Vidal & Josephine Neff.  We quickly sold out of several items including the limited edition RRGCC nut tool, which was donated by Ken Thompson.  We hope to have an even wider selection for our next event!

The evening included a fantastic pig roast prepared by the Miguel’s Crew.  It was followed by a raffle,  a slide show, and a video by Spencer Victory.  And as always, Dario had stacked the wood high for the evening bonfire!

Thank you to all who came and participated – and THANK YOU MIGUEL’S!
