New climbers' campground in the New River Gorge
« on: May 17, 2013, 02:29:40 pm »
We are hosting the grand opening of our climbers' campground in the New River Gorge this weekend! This project has been more than two years in the making, thanks in great part to many dedicated volunteers. We are very excited to finally "cut the ribbon" and officially open the campground to climbers.

TODAY IS THE TIME I NEED YOUR SUPPORT! It's what will keep this campground open and running for decades to come. Here's how you can help. We are running a grand opening celebration campaign this Friday to next, May 1724, and giving away free T-shirts to those who join or renew. In celebration, camping will be free for the New River Rendezvous this weekend and through to the 24th. Would you please take one (or both) of the following actions to generate awareness and show your support of this project?

1. POST THE ATTACHED IMAGE TO FACEBOOK. There is some suggested wording at the bottom of this email.

2. EMAIL YOUR CONTACTS. This would help us the most. I've attached HTML and plain text so that it's easy for you to send an email showcasing our partnership and showing your support for this project. Please let me know if there's any way I can facilitate this for you.

If you want more info on the promotion, here is the landing page:

Here's more info on the campground itself:

Thank you!

It just keeps getting better. @The American Alpine Club is opening its New River Gorge Campground this weekend and camping is completely free. Not enough? They're giving out free limited-edition NRG t-shirts if you join the Club by Friday, May 24! Good deal? We think so.
