The Furry Friends of Storm the Wall 2019

The first day of Storm the Wall has come to an end! Community teams led the way and kicked off the event with true panache. But after a long day of running, biking, swimming, and climbing, sometimes we need some cuddles from our best friend. The furry, smiley, tail-wagging kind. So scroll down and see Storm’s Furry Friends giving participants all the love and support anyone could ask for.

Introducing…..

Finley (@finleythetoller) and Leo the Golden!

 

These good boys were spotted giving their biggest smiles for their team Sub it up The Wall! They are considered the 6th and 7th members of the team – and we can see why! These guys know the best spots for spectating all the action happening on the wall, specifically, right outside of the AMS Nest.

Next up… Kula and Rosie!

 

These fluffy buddies were perfect for a post-race hug! However, these pups were dedicated to giving their team, Colton’s best friends, all of their love, encouragement, and attention.

Continuing on….
Lulu (@lulu.the.berniedoodle)!

This love-ball is what you’d call a berniedoodle (in case you need to google lots of puppy photos later). Her favorite thing to do is come to Storm and cheer on her best bud Hugh and his team Boat Movers!

Last but not least, Molly and friend!

Meet the free-lance agents of Storm the Wall 2019! These doggos didn’t have a specific team to cheer for but they wanted to watch all the action nonetheless. As you can see, Molly had a particularly fun time watching the teams get over the wall.

 

There is a larger, and more important lesson we can take from our furry friends, and that is the importance of giving support! This week, teams and iron persons will be doing their best to achieve their personal goals and make the most out of this amazing event. As UBC students and community members, let’s also do our best to cheer them on! So swing on by the Nest building between 10:20-4:30pm tomorrow and show some spirit.

Storm The Wall: Clinics 101

Aaaah, it’s finally that time of year again. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and… is that a 12-foot wall set up in front of the Nest? That can only mean one thing: it’s time to celebrate the end of another year by gathering some friends (or tackling it solo!) and Storming that WALL.


Here’s a little checklist in case you’ve missed UBC Recreation’s Facebook event posts:

  1. REGISTER your team/yourself before March 15th (at 5pm) over at https://recreation.ubc.ca/stormthewall/register/
  2. Choose a Storm Clinic time that works for you, and ideally 3 of your teammates – this is a crucial step! Keep reading to find out why!
  3. Get pumped to participate in one of UBC’s most beloved events. This is one for the bucket list, whether this is your first Storm or your fifth.

Clinics 101

 

So, what’s up with this whole Clinic thing? Well, this is a time for you to learn how to maximize your time at Storm by learning how to do it SAFELY and FUN-LY (not a word, but you know what I mean), as well as ask any questions you may have.

 

TEAMS:

If you and your pals are racing together, you must send at least ONE person to attend the clinic. You will need to find a date and time that works for as many of you as possible, and select this time slot as you register. This person can be in charge of passing the important info along to the rest of the team, but if possible, we recommend going as a full team. WHY? Well, if you have at least three of your members with you, you can practice scaling that wall! Nothin’ like a quick Spiderman sesh between classes.

 

IRONPERSONS & ULTRA IRONPERSONS:

You have to attend a clinic in order to race, and because it’ll be either just you – or you plus your wallperson – you can practice on the wall once the teams are finished. You can go to any clinic you want, there’s no need to register for a specific one. Just make sure you DO attend a clinic, because it’s mandatory in order to be eligible to race! We know you’re ultra amazing already, but it’s always good to practice.

 

WHAT TO BRING:

Your clinic details (like the location and time) can be found during your registration, and all you need is your STUDENT ID and some wall-climbing clothes! Take it from me, you tend to get a little mulch-y when you’re practicing, so leave those new cream pants at home and opt for something you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.

Let’s storm some walls, UBC. Can’t wait to see you at clinics!

For more information, check out the Facebook event page – and don’t forget to register by March 15th!
