UPCOMING EVENTS


THE STORY SWAP (Date TBD, Mid-September) 

We're currently in planning for our favorite event of the year, The Story Swap! Each year we put out the call for climbers from Philly to come share a 5 to 10 minute story of their adventures. We assemble a panel of 6 to 8 presenters, wrangle some brewskies, and laugh and cheer on our friends as they share that one great story they love to tell over and over. 

Stories don't have to be climbing related, but should involve some kind of adventure, preferably in the outdoors, and have a scope beyond that of a simple trip report.  Multimedia presentations are encouraged. We're open to lots of formats (still really hoping someone will pitch interpretive dance as a presentation idea)! We always have some great gifts for our presenters, so if you have a story you'd like to share, please get in touch with us via email: phillychapter@americanalpineclub.org and let us know what you're thinking!
