15 MINIMUM SPONSORSHIP TO ENTER VERTICAL MARATHON.
« on: April 14, 2010, 11:08:24 AM »
Hi all,

Just a quick note, after a lot of discussion we have decided to implement a 15 minimum sponsorship in order to climb at the vertical marathon.

I obviously hope you will have raised much, much more. However, we need to make the point we are doing this for a purpose, not just a climbing jolly.

A normal non-member entry to the wall is 10, so even if you just choose to pay the 15 out of your own pocket, you are not doing too badly.

Hope noone minds :)

Chris and the rest of the VM team.

Bloody hell its going to cost 10 every time I want to climb at SSP.  What a rip off thats even more than craggy.

Think I've got about 80 sponsorship so far

33 a month and you can climb, swim and use the gym as much as you like :-)  Probably not much use if you are not living in Guildford though :-(

Actually thats the same as craggy anyway for non-members, 10 a visit.

SSP is cheaper than craggy as its 7.50 membership and then 7.50 on peak and 6.50 off peak.

Craggy costs 12 for membership and then 8.50 peak and 7.50 off peak.

Unlike craggy weekends are also off peak at SSP.

Ahah I see.

I was being dense and not realising you could join the climbing wall withought having a general membership.  In which case becoming a member for 7.50 is good value.

Appologies

I only used 10 because it made my 15 sound less nasty :)

I may have missed it, but is there a sponsorship form we can download and give to people to fill out when trying to collect sponsorship?
