Good times, mostly it was about seeing lots of people I don't see much of or at all, like you Wayne. Thanks for the slide show!

Thanks as well to John, Marcus and all the others like Pink Chalk for the hard work. Big props to Gary for letting the competitors rip his holds up free of charge and giving up the Portland Rock Gym to the event. He was real happy that you folks were doing such good work in the organizing and running it BTW.

The first year comp, he retired those holds and gave them to a group of climber/soldiers stuck in Iraq who wanted to build a climbing wall. They were damn'ed appreciative and didn't mind a few tool marks at all. Don't know about comp 2 or 3.

Take care all, see you Wednesday at the Lucky Lab in NW PDX for the Kevin Rauch/Ozone guidebook launch benefit! wave

Good times and great oldies. I was able to blast my way down and back on my superbike even though it meant not partaking of the fine beverages. Props to Wayne for the PDX specific slide show, I had no idea the mixed potential in the area. Thanks to the organizers for bringing the stoke. Definately worth the drive for me.

Many many thanks to all that helped make this happen again this year. We raised a little under a grand for the Washington Climbers Coalition smile

This would not have happened if not for the efforts of:

Marcus Donaldson
Gary Rall and the crew @ PRG: Gary is kind enough to let us use his gym for free! HUGE! If you see him or Kenny make sure to thank him and let him know you'd be stoked if he let us do it again next year!
Roger Strong aka the nicest most humble perpetually stoked guy I know. And the only person I know who can climb 11 trad while getting eaten alive by wasps laf
The Climb Max Crew
The US Outdoor Crew
The OMC Crew
Graham and Cilogear
La Sportiva
Mountain Hardwear
Doug Cameron and Full Sail Brewing
Toro Bravo
Clark Lewis
Wayne Wallace for a great slide show
Dave Burdick
Jennifer Kellams
Bill Amos and the other judges
Everyone who took pictures or helped time climbers

and most importantly you the members of the climbing community that kicked some cash in @ the event tup

I know I totally forgot someone... my apologies!

Word up, John!

SPECIAL thanks to YOU and MARCUS (iceman) for spearheading the event. Can't wait for next year!

For you men out there: Bring your hot girlfriend. She can win you lots of sweet gear. (Example: John and Shannon)

Um, yeah, and Bill Coe... every time I turned around you were at the keg! wink

See you on the ice!

Rest assured Shannon is slowly amassing her own pile of gear and every thing she won (this year and last) is her's and not mine

Apparently not enough as those kegs were NOT empty when I took them home. Weak showing this year slackers laf brew

Speaking of beer I have 4 cases of full sail @ my house that will likely go bad well before I drink through them... perhaps a few of you might take a 6 pack of my hand this Wednesday? I need to lose 10 # anyways frown

Bring the goods this Wednesday. Tail-gate party at the Lucky Lab if you know which truck belongs to John. wink (This is probably illegal.)

pissed i couldn't make it john - i got the day-climbing or night-drinking ultimatium and couldn't finance the baby-sitter that woulda gotten the cake too - blah, blah, blah, excuses - oddly i guess its easier for me to make pdx social events during the work-week?

no matter - i'dhve been too broke to contribute to the cause and i have a feeling i woulda flailed at the competetion as i bet my fifi hook would be considered cheating? smile
