Dear BTK Executive Committee,
My name is Dooierige Daaintjie Deurkop I am currently working at the DIGSA (Department of Inhouse Golfing South Africa) as a financial advisor in Technopark. I recently completed my degree in BA Tree-climbing at UNISA with a honors in doringbome. I am from Calonda, Angola and came to study in South Africa in 2012.
I would like to join the BTK for the use of the climbing wall. I love climbing and would like to be part of the local climbing community doing climbing things and other climbing related stuff. I only do climbing on weekends and of course general climbing exercises daily. I spend my holidays on climbing tours or other climbing camps as an instructor. Yes, I am also a certified climbing instructor at the Climbing Association for Advanced Climbers.
You can contact me at:
08600 (Climbnow) or firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon.
Kind regards Daaintjie
