Coronavirus/COVID-19

The committee has been monitoring the rapidly changing situation with the Coronavirus/COVID-19 epidemic.  All of us in MKMC are missing the hills and mountains we love.  We are going to be taking some cautious steps starting off meets; initially day trips.  A few of us are climbing at Big Rock on an ad hoc basis.  If you want to climb do use club systems to find a partner.  Individuals have to follow Big Rock COVID-19 procedures, so we can not organise our normal social climbs, yet.  We can talk to another climbing pair while we are there, keeping our distance of course.
