What a busy summer! We have been a little silent on this end of our organization but that is because we have been super busy on the team front. The Gnar pirates took the summer off from competition but the DG crew have been busy at work.
The team website was completely redesigned by the wonderful Kiondra. A process that started in mid March and was finished by early August, our team finally has a website that represents their ambition, talent and dedication.
We have secured a new team sponsor for the upcoming competition season. Drum Coffee has joined our efforts to advance youth climbing in Missoula.
We have hired a new assistant coach! Bridget Creel has joined our staff. Bridget joined the team for a few events in Idaho last year and accepted our offer to join the team coaching staff. She brings a wealth of experience and is a wonderful person. Check out her BIO on the Gnar Pirate page.
We renewed our agreement with Montana Department of Transportation and will continue to participate in the Adopt A Highway program. This is our first renewal and third year overseeing mile marker 4-6 on the Highway 12 corridor.
Team practice started this week. We welcomed two new members to the existing 17 member youth team.
Comp season is nearly upon us. The first comp on the books for the team will be the Portland Boulder Rally. Now in it’s 7th year the PBR is becoming one of the nations premier competition events. For the seventh consecutive year we will have team representation at the event. Ten team members will travel to Portland to compete. Check out the team page after October 7th for pictures and an update.
We will have more exciting news as we progress through the autumn. Thanks for checking in and keep us posted if you have any questions.
