Boulders Downtown Launch Party

Sorry for the late notice, but we're throwing a PARTY! Last November, Boulders turned 21 years old and we didn't get around to celebrating. Now that we're legally old enough to drink, would you be willing to join us to hoist a few?

While we're celebrating our 21st birthday, we're also going to toast the start of construction of our a SECOND gym, Boulders Downtown. Yep, we're building a world-class Bouldering facility in the heart of Madison, right off the Capitol Square!

We are inviting Members, Friends and Family to check out the space on May 31st from 6pm to 8pm. There will be food and libations of course, as well as the heart and soul of our community at this event: Our members, meaning YOU!

We are hosting our party at Industrious Madison, a beautiful space on the 5th floor of the recently renovated building at 25 West Main, on the Square. (Which is - conveniently - in the same building as our new gym!) Can't wait to see you all there, and share our new space with you.

We can't thank you enough for being a part of our community for all of these years. Please join us to toast the next 21 years at Boulders!

Sincerely, All Of Us At Boulders.
