  1. The Portland Alpine Festival is here Nov 3 thru 8!

    [img:right]http://portlandalpinefest.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/GrahamZimmerman.jpg[/img][font:Verdana]Clinics are selling out FAST Due to the Oregonian articles today. Graham Zimmerman's clinics and seminars in High Angle Rescue, Mixed Climbing and Climbing without Beta look great!:[/font] http://portlandalpinefest.org/athletes/graham-zimmerman/
  2. [font:Verdana]The Portland Alpine Festival starts Monday and goes through Saturday November 8th with 5 athletes and over 25 events all week! We’re also starting to get some fantastic promotions through Facebook and various climbing magazines and also some great press from the Oregonian. Here’s an article from Terry Richard all about our keynote speaker John Roskelley: http://www.oregonlive.com/travel/index.ssf/2014/10/john_roskelley_brings_climbing.html And here are two more articles about the festival: http://www.oregonlive.com/travel/index.ssf/2014/10/mazamas_stage_portland_alpine.html http://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2014/10/portland_alpine_festival_will.html The biggest event of the week is The Summit, on Saturday Nov. 8. All the athletes will be there, signing posters and books (Roskelley is bringing original copies of Nanda Devi to sign!) This night will be the perfect finale to an amazing week of fun – there will be great food, drinks, a silent auction (Tons of gear, books, photos, rental houses, gift cards & more), a live auction, awards, a Vendor Fair – new gear, schwag, lots of your friends – and the highlight of the night, a presentation by climbing legend and Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement Awardee John Roskelley. We want everyone in the NW that loves to play in the mountains to come to the festival and especially the Summit! Our goal is to make the Portland Alpine Festival the greatest event, workshop and competition in the Pacific Northwest for climbers, hikers, skiers and everyone who loves to play in the mountains. So, share this note with your friends, take a look at the festival schedule again to make sure you don’t miss out on anything (http://portlandalpinefest.org/festival-schedule), and we’ll see you next week!

    Thanks to John for the great TR (as usual) and for taking the time to respond, I think very well, to Kirk & Joe's comments. Kirk or Joe - if you have an issue with Mazamas (or if ANYONE has an issue with Mazamas) I highly encourage you to call me and talk with me about it 503-227-2345. If you can't do that, then email me at lee@mazamas.org [i can also tell you exactly who moved your packs around Monkey Face that day if you'd like to thank them in person.] I climb every tuesday & thursday morning at PRG - and so will be available to talk after 11am tomorrow. Seriously, give me a call & tell me what you really think. Thanks, Lee Davis Mazamas Executive Director
