I'm planning a trip to try an 'Escape the Room' type scenario. Initially only a few of us had talked about going, but due to popular demand and finding a venue to fit larger group size, it's on the calendar.

Basically, you and your fellow club members will be locked in a room, and must find your way out within 45 minutes. In order to 'escape' you'll need to use get your best critical thinking hat on and find answers to the various riddles and puzzles. There are some videos here:

We'll be tackling these rooms in groups of six, and I'm up for trying any of them personally. Keep in mind that those of us brave enough to try 'The Kidnap' scenario, will start blindfolded and in handcuffs. Awesome!

You'll have a choice between: The Kidnap, Sherlock's Mystery and Secret Chambers. More details at xcapes.html

Since it's in Richmond, which isn't exactly around the corner for most of us, I'd like to join it with a trip to the Richmond Olympic Oval. We'll climb at the Oval from 4:00pm-8:30pm.

The Richmond Olympic Oval has offered us an $13.25 drop-in rate for the event (or $11.50 for 'young-adults' aged 19-25), and expect our apres-climbing activity to cost in the realm of $20/person. Note: The Oval has a one- time (lifetime) registration fee of $10.50 which includes a belay-check that you'll have to do if you've not climbed there before.

For anyone skipping the climbing portion, we'll be meeting at 8:45pm at the venue (location to follow closer to date).
