COVID-19: All club activities suspended

Following the SSCC measures and guidelines recommended by local authorities all climbing club activities incl. club nights have been suspended until further notice.

Also, the Climbing Club beginner’s event had to be cancelled for now, but we hope to offer it again at a later point in time.

Please be advised:  At the moment (status 2020-03-19) our two club night climbing/boulder locations StudioBloc in Pfungstadt and High Moves in Bensheim are closed due to the Corona virus. Boulderhaus and the DAV center in Darmstadt are both closed as well.

Stay healthy…

Also in 2020,  the ESOC climbing club is happy to offer you a beginner’s climbing course at the climbing gym in Bensheim (High Moves – Beginner’s Course).
The course is held in English and split in two sessions on 17/03/2020 and 19/03/2020.

What will I learn?

  • Safety instructions, e.g. how to put on the harness correctly, the right knots, partner check.
  • Belaying of another climber, e.g. how to safely belay, take in (hold in position), and lower people.
  • Basic fall training into the rope, for climber and belayer.

With this knowledge you’ll be able to participate in future club nights and climb and belay safely.

How to participate?

An email with all the necessary information was sent to the climbing club distribution list. In case you have not received it or you are not yet member of the club yet, just get in contact with Volker or someone else from the committee.

AGM 2019

Another year has gone by… The time has come to wrap up 2019 and discuss the (almost) endless possibilities for 2020. Therefore, the ESOC Climbing Club Committee sincerely invites you to join us for the 2019 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 10 December 2019 at 18:00 at ESOC, Room H.IV.
We decided to follow in last years’ tradition and host it on-site. We will try to keep the meeting brief and efficient. But of course there is the option to go for a drink afterwards at a near-by location.

For offsite people, please read carefully:

  • if you have an ESA badge: you should be fine, just come join us in H.IV. If you don’t know where the room is or you are not sure if your badge grants you access to the H-building, meet us at 17:45 at the gate house. We will then go to the room together.
  • if you don’t have an ESA badge: please let us know that you are coming before Thursday, 5th December, EOB. We will then register you as visitors. Please arrive at 17:45 with an official picture ID (drivers licences are not accepted) at the gate house. We will come and pick you up collectively.

At the AGM, we will be reviewing club activities and finances in 2019 but also speak about the planning for 2020. If you have topics you would like addressed, please feel free to send an email to any of the committee members beforehand or bring them up at the meeting directly.

We are very proud to say that the ESOC climbing club has grown substantially in numbers compared to last year and we (the ESOC climbing club committee) hope very much that this will be reflected in number of participants at the AGM!
Joining this meeting is your opportunity to show us which activities you liked in 2019 or would like improved for 2020. We are grateful for any type of feedback and open to new ideas.

Be assured that the club values your ideas and depends on your input and initiative!

So in a nutshell: Please join us for the AGM, because climbing matters!

AGM 2018 completed – new committee

The 2018 AGM has been successfully held, with a record attendance and very fruitful discussions. Thanks to all participants for that!

As already indicated, the current committee members didn’t run for office anymore, so we are happy to announce our new committee for 2019 and the many years to come:

  • Chairperson: Denise
  • Treasurer: Thomas
  • Secretary: Jochen

Volker continues his service as quartermaster.

Thanks to the new committee members for volunteering to support the club in the future, and all the best.

AGM 2018

The 2018 Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 12 December 2018 at 18:00 at ESOC, Room S.113. SEE YOU THERE!!
We decided to follow in other clubs’ footsteps this year again and host it on-site, since our AGMs usually don’t run very long. We can go for a drink near-by afterwards (club pays) and will finish well in time for the unofficial Christmas party. The club night that had been originally planned for this day is cancelled.

For offsite people, please read carefully:

  • if you have an ESA badge: you should be fine, just come join us in S.113
  • if you don’t have an ESA badge: please let me know that you are coming before 10 December, 16:00. I will then register you as visitors. Please arrive on Wednesday at 17:45 with an official picture ID (drivers licences are not accepted) at the gate house. We will come and pick you up collectively at the gate house.

It would be great to see as many of you there as possible! If you have some topics you would like addressed in the AGM and can’t make it or would like them to be put on the agenda, please send me an email.

As stated several times, the current chairman and treasurer are not up for election again. We need volunteers to continue the club in 2019. If you are interested in any of the posts, feel free to contact us up front for details on the positions.
Again, if you are off-site, please let me know beforehand (by Monday, 1600) if you want to join.

See you there with your ideas!!
