Indoor Rock Climbing with TAP (Round 2)

Come join TAP-DC for our SECOND indoor rock climbing event! Our first one was very well received so we will be hosting a second climbing event, this time at Earth Treks - Rockville.

We'll be focusing on bouldering (shorter walls, no rope) with some more experienced climbers who will be there to help and show you the basics. First time climbers and all levels are welcome - whether you are an experienced climber or a beginner this is a great way to try out a new activity with TAP-DC!

Please contact Yitian Xiao (yitian.xiao@tap-dc.org) if you have questions regarding this event.

==Getting there==
Free parking is available onsite if you plan to drive. If you plan on taking metro, take the red line to Rockville station and walk from there. Earth Treks-Rockville is roughly half mile away from the Rockville metro station.

===Meeting location===
Meet us at 2:30pm by the area in front of the gym with weights/treadmills. There will be tables/benches for you to sit if you arrive early. If you arrive after 2:45pm the group will already be in the bouldering area but we will be at Earth Treks until 6pm

==Waiver==
If this is your first visit, you will need to sign a waiver. If you'd like to save time before arriving at the gym, you can fill out their online waiver here: https://www.earthtreksclimbing.com/waiver/

===Cost===
Day pass: $26
Shoe rental: $6

==Disclaimer==
As with any other voluntary activities, you remain responsible for your own health, safety, and well being. We will try to relay useful recommendations and guidelines, but it is your responsibility to make sure you are fully informed of the risks associated with climbing.

AAPI Salute to Service

As we kick off Asian-American Heritage Month, please join TAP-DC, NOVAL, FYP-DC, and NAAAP-DC on special outing honoring those who have served our country. On May 5th, we will visit Arlington National Cemetery as the sentinels have granted us permission to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

We are honored to have the opportunity to do this and would like to invite the AAPI community of the Washington area to be a part of this occasion.

The recommended dress attire is "Sunday's Best". Men should wear a collared shirt with appropriate pants/polished shoes. Ties and jackets are optional. Women should wear a formal/informal dress that covers the shoulders with appropriate shoes.
