TRL IV Official T-Shirt
I am excited to have finished the artwork for this year's shirt and thrilled to once again offer TRL event shirts this year.
Same as last year, I am only printing out a small amount of shirts (150) to make them exclusive and something really special.
Also this year I have partnered with America Apparel to bring you a top quality shirt to complement my artwork. What does that mean? These shirts are fitted shirts for comfort and style; market value of these type of shirts easily retail for $30. So it's important very important that you look at the American Apparel size chart below to determine what size to order.
TRL IV T-SHIRT SIZE CHART
Cost - $10 for VIP signups / $15 for non VIP signups.
First come first serve, so make sure you gets yours early.
Bring your favorite food/snacks/drinks to the gym. There will not be any dinner or pizzas from me. No eating in the rock gym area, just the areas they ask us to eat.
Also remember to be considerate, if you make a mess, please pick it up. As well as if you see trash, please help out and throw it away.
Bring your sleeping bag, pillow, blankets and anything else you need to sleep for the night. Important note, we will have the women sleep on one side of the gym and the guys sleeping on the other side.
Texas Rock Gym will have rock climbing shoes but they do not have many of each size so bring good gym shoes to climb with.
: What time should I have my parents or friends pick me up?
: 7AM SO Coordinate!!! Remember that 7AM is early, so if you're having parents pick you up let them know where the gym is at and what time to pick you up. If you're riding with a group of people, be sure that the driver is able to drive and is awake.
: Are we singing or having a devo that night?
: YES! Around 2:00AMish we'll be having a devotional followed by a song service.
I'll be bringing the song books and we will be able to spend some time singing and praising our Lord.
: Will there be other things to do other than rock climb?
: Oh Yeah!
- Our 2nd year we did Sumo, Our 3rd year we jumped all over the velcro wall, this year...you won't beleive what I'm bringing in! TRL IV will have HUMAN FOOSBALL! See above for images!
- Our yearly TRL Devotional.
- Most of the time somebody has their Xbox or Wii system for many to enjoy.
- Feel free to bring games that you think several others might want to play; I even heard of a Christian Texas Hold'em game going down that night.
: Do I need to be fit to climb?
: Training: The first hour Texas Rock Gym will train all us in attendance. You must bring ID and sign a waver form before you do any climbing. All waiver can be found on their website http://www.texasrockgym.com The waver forms are very similar to the high ropes course we all signed at dry creek.
Rock climbing is a strenuous activity and participants should be in good health, You should avoid climbing if you have any health concerns. All forms of rock climbing involve substantial risk of injury and all participants must assume full responsibility for any and all such risks. All new climbers and belayers must complete and sign a LIABILITY WAIVER prior to participation in any climbing activities at the Texas Rock Gym. Participants under 18 yrs of age must have a LIABILITY WAIVER signed by their parent or legal guardian.
Something to also consider is your safety. If you are driving by yourself or with a party in the morning, please make sure you are able to drive. The last thing we want is for you to be sleeping behind the wheel. Please have that in mind when coming to this event.
: I already know I won't be able to go, can I still help spread the word?
: YES! I know some of you might not be able to come but please help by talking to your youth group. You can also download a promo poster and pass it out. All the help is much appreciated.
: Can I copy and paste this post in an email so I can share this information with my friends and family?
: YES!! If you think there coming, they need this info.
Well I think this covers just about everything. If you think something else, let me know and I'll update this page. Once again, please let me know by June 27th of any other friends or family who will be joining us so I can add there name to my list. Also, DON'T FORGET YOUR WAIVER FORMS
