Utah Scorpions Party, Thursday 11/15

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

So.. you might be sitting there asking yourself, “hmmm what is this latest bulletin on and what does this have to to with utahclimbers?” Well, simply put..this is an open invite to a great party complete with live music, cheap drinks and a bunch of great raffle items. All proceeds go to the Utah Scorpions Wheelchair rugby team who just so happen to include Salt Lake climbin’ old schooler Matt Lund. The event is being sponsored by numerous climbing companies who’ve also contributed prizes for a raffle.

Profits from this event will go towards sending the Scorpions to different regional competitions and covering equipment expenses. Think you went though a lot of tape the last time you taped up for that Indian Creek classic? Well.. try going through two rolls a week practicing rugby! So come help out the team, hang out with friends you only see at the crag (or in my case the gym) and contribute to a great cause!

Come support the Utah Scorpions at Club Vegas on Thursday, November 15th at 8:00PM!
