Joe,

The meetup.com climbing groups have been bringing lots of new climbers to the outdoors lately, and I would think they would be appreciative of your clinic offers.
If you could send me the finalized flyer (via messaging here on gunks.com) I could post it to the message boards of the groups I belong to.
I would like to commend you and your fellow guides for offering your hard earned professional skills, free of charge, towards keeping climbers safer.

For the guides that do it, kudos for offering the public service. any accident is devastating for the families and loved ones, but especially so for an accident that is so driver error.

How about an idea. During the film festival include a raffle, auction, that could help offset it the guides time, since guides by in large don't make much as it is, but it's more of a passion. It's cool that many are willing to volunteer their time, but if it's truly ongoing, I think they skould be offered some compensation by the climbing community at large.

Joe, if you send me the flier I'll put it up at Brooklyn Boulders and email it to friends who will put it up at the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. I'll pm you my email address.

I could put a mention on my blog as well, which will distribute your message to at least half a dozen dedicated readers.

Joe, I sent you an email. I do the social networking for the GCC.

Personally, I think what you're offering is awesome and very generous. If it can prevent just one serious injury or death, it will be well worth the time of everyone involved.
