2019 Member Challenge

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Earn your peaks!

February 1 – April 30, 2019
Put your membership to good use and receive a FREE t-shirt with our 4th annual members only 90-day challenge!

The Objective:

Earn points by completing a list of challenges including over 100 different activities – from climbing, fitness and check-in challenges to attending socials, interacting with staff, fun games, hula hooping and more.

As points are achieved, 3 different levels of “peaks” are awarded and added to your FREE member challenge t-shirt. It takes 175 points to earn all 3 peaks; with over 300 points available!

First Peak: 50 points  |  Second Peak: 100 points  |  Third Peak: 175 points

The List:

New challenges are added every year including fitness, climbing games and skills based challenges with a distribution of points designed to engage both the over and under achievers among us. As proven in previous years, it is possible to earn all 3 peaks in one day (IAD) but there are also plenty of really fun challenges that are accessible to all skill levels and will keep you coming back for more points and peaks!

The Shirts:

Points will be tallied once a week by Edgeworks staff and T-shirts will be distributed upon achievement of the first peak (50 points). T-shirts will be labelled with the member’s name and added to a rolling cart to be located near the front desk. 

*Current stock/availability may delay the delivery a t-shirt by 1-2 weeks.

Note: Feel free to wear and wash your shirt during the challenge but please refrain from using fabric softener until after all of your peaks have been added.

Earning/Adding Peaks:

Iron-on peaks will be made available at the front desk along with simple to follow DIY instructions.

Or you can bring your shirt to the monthly Climbers Socials in March, April and May, when we’ll have staff available to add the peaks for you.

Progress:

Members are responsible for tracking their progress and checking the boxes on their challenge sheets as items are completed. To entice those of us with an extra competitive spirit, we will update a public Challenge Board with everyone’s individual points – you know, just in case you want to see how you match up to the achievements of others.

Competitions not your thing but still want to experience the fun of climbing in the black lights?

Invite your friends, wear your best GLOW, and join us for an after-hours, kid-friendly, member event. As a way to say thank you to our members, we’ll turn out the lights one more time before the work begins Monday morning to return things to “normal” around here.

*Some competition routes will come down prior to the member event and the climbing area will be open to the outside side lights from the front desk and 2nd floor. To experience the full effect of the black lights, be sure to join us for the 2018 BLB Comp on Saturday, Oct 27!

Roped Climbing on the shorter walls will be closed during the event but the new/taller walls will be business as usual with normal lights and access.
