Agenda
For the first 30 minutes there will be a few demos of new material (sit-n-spin, fireman belay, mid-rap tie off, rope management, etc.). 
Then for the rest of the evening you'll practice rappelling, hopefully doing 6+ rappels. You'll be rappelling from the rock ledge in Goodman C, outside from the top of the south rock wall, and also off the roof of the north side of the building.

6:29pm-9:30pm at the Seattle Program Center. Most of the evening we'll be outside, rain or shine. We'll meet in Goodman C (the room with the rock wall) at 6:29pm for demos, please be on time!
