Hi, inSPIRE Rock friends and family,

That yellow haze outside on our cars might indicate that Spring is on its way.  Spring is a wonderful time of the year around here.  I enjoy seeing nature “wake up” after being dormant during winter.  Things look and feel fresh and new.  That analogy also applies to inSPIRE Rock.  One of our goals is to keep things fresh and new around here too.  Here are the latest updates:

  • The garage climbing area construction is ramping up to almost full swing with the HVAC installed, the 10-foot ceiling fan, and other things going in almost daily.  Some wall design issues have messed with our timeline, but things are looking good to have this area open sometime in April (mid to late).  We welcome and appreciate all prayers and well wishes as we try to make this happen – sooner rather than later.
  • Do we need a good name for the garage climbing area?  One suggestion was the “Body Shop Garage” since some fitness equipment will be in there too.  Another suggestion was “The MO,” which stands for Member’s Only.  Feel free to suggest by writing your name or idea on the suggestion cards and putting them in the suggestion box.
  •  As I alluded to in my last newsletter, more big announcements will happen soon… Get ready, and make sure you’re sitting down!

Thank you for being a big part of the “most inspirational climbing community.”  I’m grateful for each of you.

Climb ON!
Paul Short
