    Ring That Bell at the Top of the Climbing Wall! @NSCD @denverpal

    Ascending on neighboring routes, Dugan and Charles both near the top of the wall

    Spring rock climbing with NSCD is underway, and Group 2 made their way on Tuesday to Denver PAL’s indoor climbing wall for their introductory climb, and lessons in harnessing up, tying knots and belaying. NSCD fittingly hung a bell at the top of each route so climbers can ring it loud and proud when they reach the top! We’re good with ringing that bell with confidence!

    In addition to the introductory indoor climb, each group does two outdoor climbs in Clear Creek Canyon as well, though Group 2’s scheduled outdoor climb on Friday has been rescheduled because … Well, it’s snowing again in Colorado in May!… Read the rest “Ring That Bell at the Top of the Climbing Wall! @NSCD @denverpal”

    A Bustling Day in the Gym

    Okay, Tuesdays can get a little wild anyway, what with Seniors coming and filling up our large conference room all morning. You gotta believe us – we love having them!

    But meanwhile, down in the gym …

    We had both Martial arts and Archery happening all at once. The wildest imaginations might hve the martial arts students blocking and catching flying arrows, but that’s not at all the scenario. That’s just imagination …

  • Bullseye with Blind Archery: #LivetheLifeYouWant @NSCD

    Bullseye with Blind Archery: #LivetheLifeYouWant @NSCD

    Petr, Mike, Chaz and C.G. gripping their bows to take aim with guidance from NCSD Instructors
    Zen and the Art of Archery was a popular book in the 1970s among a certain crowd in which martial arts practitioners became adept at hitting the bullseye while blindfolded. What does that mean? Who really knows, other than it was the era of the “Kung Fu” TV series.

    Nonetheless, our partners at NSCD arranged an archery class for some of our students, and it took place in the gym last Tuesday

    Dare we say it? It really hit the mark!.
