Rockfest 2012- Rocks State Park

In a little less than a month, the Mid-Atlantic Climbers will be hosting their annual Rockfest event, scheduled for Saturday April 21st at Rocks State Park.  What is Rockfest?  It's similar to the other Adopt-A-Crag style events hosted by the MAC, with plans for trailwork and other area improvements, but with one major difference.  Rather than the usual morning of work followed by afternoon of climbing, Rockfest is a two-day event, with nearby camping for volunteers who want to hang around for some Sunday fun on the rocks.  Volunteers will also be provided with lunch and dinner Saturday, and breakfast Sunday.  And if three free meals aren't enough, there's always the chance to score some sweet new gear in the post-dinner raffle, all before settling down for an evening of movie entertainment.  Okay, so maybe there are a few differences!

Rockfest will be held rain or shine, and camping is limited to 75 volunteers, so register early to reserve your space.  Be sure to dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes for work on or off the trails.  Gloves and all tools will be provided.

Hope to see you out there!
