Kitsap Vertical World Concerned Citizens Meeting

Friends –

This is late notice, and I’m sorry to interrupt the opening-season revelry, but it’s time to get the word out.

Kitsap’s beloved Vertical World climbing gym, our home away from home on the Peninsula, is up for sale. Some of us members are trying to put together a plan to keep the gym operating in Kitsap.

On Wednesday, the 20th at 5pm, there will be a representative from the current ownership at the gym, available to meet with interested potential buyers. Hopefully, this meeting will be an opportunity for the current owners to share some information so that we concerned members can move forward with the steps necessary to plan how to keep the gym here.

Please join us at the Kitsap Vertical World location at 5pm on Wednesday, February 20th, if you’re interested in ponying up to help keep the peninsula pulling on plastic. If you’d like to help, but can’t attend, please drop me an email and I’ll keep you posted on the progress of the sale and on what you can do to help.

Also, if you’re serious about helping out, please join the Kitsap Climbers google group. Visit and join the list, to participate in discussion among the current members and concerned citizens.

Another edit — apparently, VW’s plan is that this not be an “open” meeting, and that the participants be limited to folks who are interested in being involved in a potential purchase participate. So… we’ll honor that, and I’ve changed the post above to reflect this change in scope. Check back here for updates as they become available.
