Help Preserve Southeastern Climbing with an Online Vote!

The American Alpine Institute just received this notice from our friends at the Access Fund and at the Southeastern Climbers Coalition.

Help save more classic climbing!
The Southeastern Climbers Coalition asks for YOUR help to secure access to 2 excellent crags currently closed to climbing. We have entered the Pepsi Refresh Project grant competition at the $250,000 level. The winners are determined by public e-voting.  If we win, and that is entirely up to YOU, the SCC will use the money to secure access to climbing areas in Alabama and Tennessee.  The specific locations cannot be disclosed at this time because access hasn’t yet been secured, but trust us, they’re amazing properties to preserve and enjoy forevermore! 
E-voting begins November 1, 2010 and a direct voting link will be provided then.  You may vote for the SCC's Land Acquisition Proposalonce a day, every single day, from November 1 to midnight November 30, 2010.  Every vote is valuable and counts towards the cause!  The proposal with the most votes WINS! 
If you would like a daily voting reminder via email, please send an email to sccreminders@gmail.com
Please help spread the word!  More details and a link to the proposal for voting will be provided on November 1.  So mark your calendars, stay tuned on www.seclimbers.org, follow us on Twitter www.twitter/SEClimbers, friend the Southeastern Climbers Coalition on Facebook, and check out November’s issue of Deadpoint Magazine for the Triple Crown’s 2 page promo which includes a teaser about this grant competition!
The SCC is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving climbing areas for future generations to enjoy. To learn more about us, visit our website at www.seclimbers.org
