The Amber read-me.
Welcome to the Amber Network, this page contains just a little info about how the website works and how you can best make use of its features.
About the Network.
First up, this is a NON-commercial site, there are no membership fees and the events posted by us are run on a cost price basis.
The network was created by Daniel (that's me) in January 2009 and has grown steadily since then. We started out as a group of (mostly) ex-pats (non-Dutch) who love to climb but also like to socialise with from time to time..
Nowadays there is a complete mix of nationalities, far too many for me to mention here, as a result the language of the website is predominately English.
If you wish to advertise or in any way promote commercial events then please contact Daniel BEFORE posting to discuss the possibilities. If you post commercial events without prior-consent these events will most likely be deleted and your membership may be cancelled.
The heart of the matter.
The heart of our network are the events, the local indoor events usually take place a couple times a week at the different walls in Amsterdam.
We also organise regular trips outdoors, Belgium and France are common locations though we also organise trips to Spain, Germany, Switzerland and the UK.
To attend an event, all you need to do is RSVP YES. The event organiser will then know to look out for you. If you have never been to an event or you do not know the people going it may be worth sending the organiser a message so as to introduce yourself and to make sure you know where to be at the start time.
Don't be shy - even if you know no one you will soon get to know people and we were all newbie’s at some time or other.
N.B. Having a decent profile picture goes some way to making the first meet up a little less traumatic :-)
Everyone is welcome to organise events as they please. Try and add a nice picture as this will encourage people to come. Once organised do try and be aware of who is coming to your event and make sure they know where to be and when.
The Trip-logs. aka. The Blog section.
Here you are all invited to post trip descriptions and travel stories. This is a great resource if you are planning on visiting a location - you can gain vital local knowledge.
Till now a little used resource, here you can post discussions or questions about climbing or on almost any subject you like. Please do try and keep the discussions to the correct forum though.
That’s about all for now, I hope you enjoy the site and make the most out of it. The front page content is filled via other climbing sites so the content changes regularly.
If you have any questions or suggestions just send them to me, I will be happy to try and answer them. (Amsterdamclimbers@gmail.com)
