Last Thursday night Gociety hosted an Avalanche Awareness class and shindig at Battery621 in Denver, and it went off in a huge way! The final count was 140 Gociety members in attendance – not bad for our first big event, and we are still stoked to have seen so much support from the Colorado community.
We held the event at Battery621, where our main office is located. Battery is a co-share office space, filled with mostly outdoor oriented companies like Icelantic, Spyder and Jiberish, making it a it killer location for big, outdoor sports oriented events. Icelantic donated a pair of skis to give away, and combined with beer supplied by Upslope Brewing Co., it was truly a fun evening for everyone.
Of course, we couldn’t have done it without the guides from ApexEx, who kept the crowds attention throughout the presentation. Avalanche safety information isn’t always sexy or glamorous, but the guides provided a unique class and kept the crowd engaged throughout.
Check out some pictures from the event below, and we hope to see everyone again at the next Gociety shindig!
