From our friends at Trango:
Do you want to be a sponsored climber? Well now is your chance! Trango is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for our Grassroots Athlete Program.
The decision of who will be part of our Grassroots team is going to be based on a complex algorithm that takes into account your climbing ability, where you live, your involvement in the climbing community, how well you write, how much we like your pictures, and a couple of additional criteria that we have not thought of yet.
We are going to be soliciting people in a variety of ways, and we encourage you to have your friends voice their support for your efforts. We will be putting you up on Facebook, talking about you with other climbers, and really just trying to find out if you are good people.
In return for your support, we will shamelessly promote you as a sponsored athlete, provide you with gear, give you stuff to test (after we make sure it is safe), and generally put you on a pedestal until next year, when we reserve the right to trade you in for a newer model.
For details and and an application, please visit www.trango.com/athleteprogram.pdf, and Like us on Facebook to stay in touch.
