    Let’s be honest, working from home has been great. Who needs real pants when no one sees your legs on Zoom? But as society opens back up, we all have a new chance to take charge of how the world perceives us.

    Join Alex Fownes; owner of Signature Styling Services as she teaches us how to dress in a way that reflects our individual personalities and how to integrate easy and effective styling practices into everyday life. Learn how to re-enter a post-Covid world with confidence and flair.

    During the event, all participants will work directly with Alex to complete an individualized Personality Questionnaire and discover their personal style based on their quirks and traits. Additionally, they will learn the basic do’s and don’ts of closet organization to bring joy back into the process of getting dressed.

    This event is perfect for the amateur or experienced fashionista, or the person who doesn't know a thing about personal style. Absolutely no prior experience or knowledge is needed to attend. Simply bring a piece of paper and a pencil to mark down answers to the Personality Quiz, although no one’s going to judge if you bring wine to sip on as well. The dedicated Zoom link will be sent out for all attendees one day before the event.
    Join us for an evening of laughs and hilarious discussions around everything style!

    *An email with the Zoom meeting details will be sent one day before the event.

    Join PYP for a relaxed night of networking and feel free to bring your own brews! Nervous that you do not know what to talk about? No worries, PYP will be providing each participant a list of "ice breaker" question to get the conversation started and to keep it going. Instead of your typical 1 on 1 speed networking online, we are going to take a difference approach and do breakout rooms of 3-4 people that changes throughout the evening. There will be multiple changes in-between breakout sessions to answer trivia questions and win gift cards to local breweries!

    *An email with the Zoom meeting details will be sent one day before the event.

    Join PYP as we kick off our Sunday Funday Series! The first stop is Mindful Brewing Company in Castle Shannon. Mindful Brewing was opened out of a desire to capture the craft beer boom that was being imported to Pittsburgh and to do it with a local twist. The idea behind the "mindful" name is to be mindful about the ingredients behind the products, whether that means using local ingredients or focusing on sustainability.

    During the event our members will receive $1 off all drafts. Check out the draft menu! There will also be food specials for all attendees.

    The Sunday Funday Series looks to showcase Pittsburgh's outstanding, locally owned watering holes. Each month we will visit a location in the Greater Pittsburgh Region where our members will be treated to drink and food specials! There might even be a surprise gift at each event! Make sure you attend all the events in order to collect them all!

    Join PYP for a fun filled Saturday where we will take to the trees and complete the region’s high ropes course at a discounted price. This is so much more than just zip lines; it’s a 2-3-hour aerial journey through the forest canopy. Go Ape high-ropes course includes suspended obstacles, swings and breathtaking zip lines. Engage every sense in a fully immersive and visually stunning forest setting.

    We have a group for 30 individuals beginning at 10:00 a.m. The first 15 will begin at 10:00 and the second 15 will begin at 10:30. Every guest may plan to spend 2-3 hours tackling the Go Ape adventure! Reservations are due BY FRIDAY, JULY 30TH.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Please be mindful of your registration and our wait list. If for any reason you are no longer able to attend, please email me outreach@pyp.org with your cancellation in order to free space for interested attendees and to provide the most accurate count for the venue. There are NO refunds in the event of a cancellation.

    Important information:

    WAIVERS : All guests MUST sign a waiver before their adventure. Please follow the link(s) above to complete your electronic waiver.;https://go.theflybook.com/Manage/SN1HIB#/lite

    KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

    Make sure to arrive at Go Ape at least 15 mins early to check-in. Consider extra time for traffic and parking. Your adventure starts at the time you've booked.

    Height/Weight/Age: The harnesses are one size fits all. To attend you must be 18 years old, at least 4’7”, and less than 285 pounds.

    WHAT TO WEAR AND BRING

    Wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty. You may want to bring a change of clothing for the ride home.

    Closed toe, closed heel, fully enclosed shoes are required. We recommend ankle-supporting boots, but sneakers are fine too. For your safety, do NOT wear sandals, slip-ons, or any shoe where your foot or toes are partially exposed. You must bring your own gloves to wear on the course. These must cover your fingertips.
    Dress for the weather! Layers, hats, gloves, and rain gear are recommended depending on the weather forecast.

    Gloves are recommended but not required. You can purchase gloves at Go Ape when you arrive.

    For your safety… long hair should be tied back, waists and thighs should be covered, and body jewelry should be removed or taped over.
    You may take cameras, phones, and any other device on the course as long as they are secured to you and tucked away to prevent them from getting caught or falling to the ground.

    We DON'T recommend bringing a bag with you into the trees because they are bulky, but if you must bring a bag, it should fit closely to your body and must not interfere with the harness or related Go Ape gear. A small backpack with tight fitting straps usually works fine. Fanny packs aren't great because they sit right where your harness will be.
    Please leave extra bags and belongings locked in your car during your adventure. We can hold onto keys for you at the cabin. Go Ape is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

    Parking: Is available at the address above and it is free!

    COVID-19: BE PREPARED
    Gloves: All guests and staff are REQUIRED to wear full finger gloves. You may bring your own. Latex gloves are not recommended. We encourage you to wear something more durable. We also have gloves available for purchase on site.

    Face Coverings: All guests and staff are REQUIRED to wear a face covering for their nose and mouth during check-in, briefing and any time social distancing cannot be maintained. The face covering should not restrict vision. You may bring your own. We also have face coverings available at site.

    If Sick, Please Reschedule: If you have been sick in the last two weeks, please stay at home for your health and the safety of others. Our staff would be happy to reschedule your adventure with no re-booking fee. If you are at a higher risk, please follow the advice available at the CDC web site. Our staff will be screened at the beginning of each shift, including taking their temperature prior to allowing them to interact with guests or other staff.

    Soap or Hand Sanitizer: Go Ape will have hand sanitizer available throughout the course and at our cabin. Please pack extra soap or hand sanitizer, in case park restrooms are running short.

    Social Distancing: We've restricted our session sizes. In addition, you should expect our staff to space guests out during check-in and briefing, to minimize close contact as defined by the CDC. While on the course, guests that are from a different group must maintain at least one crossing (more than 6') from other groups.

    Cashless Payments: We've gone cashless so if you plan to purchase gloves, a t-shirt or another memento, please make sure you have a credit card with you.

    Processes: For more details on the Go Ape approach, please visit the COVID-19 page on our web site.
