Put the TeePees away guys as it is with regret we have had to cancel next months Big Shake Out Event due to problems with the venue.
It seems you have all taken the event to heart and what was planned to be a relatively low key event has snow balled into something much larger. Unfortunately the site we had planned to use for the event cannot cater for this level of interest and with such short notice we have been unable to find a suitable alternative and obtain the relevant permissions. All of us at Alpkit were looking forward to meeting everyone at the Shake Out and the vibe we were getting from you was great.
Many thanks to Pyranha, Venture, Genesis, Evolv, Gibbon and Up to Summit who had all agreed to support the event, everyone who had volunteered their services and everyone who had spread the word. We will keep this mailing list open, but if you would rather remove yourself just click the link at the foot of the email. For everyone else we’ll take your enthusiasm and look to try and re-organise the event later this year. Failing that, the Shake Out will be back, bigger and better in 2010.
