Please join Gramicci and Boulderdash for this lively event! You will find a Gramicci tent in the parking lot selling and showing Gramicci gear, including the latest in NPT- Natural Performance Technology ™. This revolutionary organic NPT™ line offers performance shirts, (great for climbing) that are leaders in areas of moisture absorption, breathability, and dry time speed. The dynamic properties of the hemp blend in the shirts make them antimicrobial, meaning they will not smell after sweating. The shirts also help to maintain a consistent comfortable body temperature.
Unlike other popular choices in performance wear, a true conscious attribute is that these shirts are made of toxin free Hemp and GOTS Certified organic cotton. This means that the cotton and hemp were grown free of pesticides and/or insecticides unlike chemically treated cottons that poison the earth, its water, and the humans that harvest it. Free NPT™men’s Endurance Tee samples and women’s NPT™Corawood Tunic samples will be handed out at noon to the first 25 people to the Gramicci tent. The best performing organic tee shirt on the market, on the best young competitors entering the season.
The event will be complete with a day long BBQ and an end of day raffle. Come one, come all! We hope to see you there.
