DC Happy Hour Supports MAC and the Access Fund

posted in: Uncategorized | 0


A very special thank you to everyone who came out to last Monday’s Mid Atlantic Climbers happy hour at Penn Social.

Penn Social is known as somewhat of an “activities and games” bar.  Being climbers, we brought some of our own strength and dexterity games to the bar! Loyal MAC volunteer and Earth Treks Employee Mark Webb is pictured at left in the “6 feet and above” category of the salt shaker game*. Happy Hour attendees also played the paper bag game* and enjoyed reduced drink pricing offered by Penn Social.

Lots of happy hour attendees participated in the raffle which raised money to support MAC’s upcoming events, but Eric (pictured at right) went home with the big prize of the day, a Sterling 60 meter rope donated by the Arlington EMS.

MAC plans to host another happy hour in the fall with the aim of getting climbers together for fun and fundraising.  We’ll let you know the date here and on our Facebook page, but if you know of a bar or restaurant that might be interested in supporting local climbing, or are interested in planning a happy hour in partnership with MAC, let us know!

A very special thanks to our sponsors:

Eastern Mountain Sports
Access Fund
Blue Water Ropes
Misty Mountain
