Sterling is hosting an awesome Member Appreciation competition on February 18th - crate stacking! The concept is simple: using plastic crates, competitors vie to make the highest stack possible. Oh, and we should probably mention that you'll be on belay and standing atop the stack the entire time, somehow adding new layers without falling off. The event starts at 7pm and promises to be a wacky night with some ingenious engineering and plenty of crumbling crate construction.

Every year, when November arrives, we are reminded to be thankful for all that we have. Maybe we get too busy during the year (this is DC after all!) or maybe November, with all of the holiday celebrations, simply inspires us to give more. Whatever the reason, Sportrock would like to show our appreciation for our amazing family of climbers and say 'thanks' for letting us be a part of this special community.
