The South African National Climbing Federation would like to formally welcome RAM Mountaineering Limited as a major sponsor in 2011.
RAM has been supplying South Africans with leading brands such as Beal, Saltic and Black Diamond for many years. RAM will be supporting the SANCF in its ongoing efforts to further establish competition climbing as a recognised sport in schools and to develop competition climbing in previously disadvantaged schools. This can only be of great benefit to the growth and development of climbing in South Africa as a whole.
RAM will play a large role in sponsoring National lead and top rope climbing competitions with the primary focus being on the youth age category (U19 and below). This agreement is a continuation of the previous years with RAM, amongst other things, offering schools special discounts, as well as supplying prizes to the 2010 Schools National Climbing Competition.
Furthermore, all SANCF members with valid SANCF membership cards can enjoy a 10% discount on RAM brands at the following stores:
Drifters – Gauteng and Cape Town
Seven Summits – Cape Town
Bush & Bundu – Pietermaritzburg
Mountain Pursuits – Bloemfontein
Rock & Rope – Mpumalanga
Outdoor Freedom – Pretoria
In the same vein, RAM has also arranged that SANCF members receive one free visit and preferred rates on subsequent visits at The Barn and Wonderwall.
SANCF is very pleased to have RAM as a partner and looks forward to strengthening its relationship with this reputable company for the overall benefit of competition climbing in South Africa. With a number of our climbers already competing overseas this year, the future looks bright.
