      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

ps... it's FREE in Oly..

 

The Climbing Club has to pay the university for facilities, equipment, staff to watch over us, staff to collect tickets, etc. It's pretty lame. I assume your college is a little more helpful.

For that matter, I had to:

 

fill out the Reservation form

fill out the UUF form, get it signed by a big dood, and then turn it in to someone else

fill out the Fundraising form

fill out the SAUF form

fill out the Ticket Sales form, get it signed by a big dood, and then turn it in to someone else

toss in two or three meetings with bureaucrats, a 50% advance deposit on our expenses

 

and multiply that by 2 for the two shows we're having, and all of a sudden, the workload from these two shows is basically a part-time job.

 

There is often incompetence along the way.

"Here is my reservation form. Do I have the room reserved?"

"It's not reserved by anyone else right now, but earlier today, someone else could have reserved it for that time. We'll get back to you in two weeks."

 

There are a few nice folks who are helpful; you know who you are.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, with some luck, tomorrow I'll be receiving a $1000+ travel reimbursement from the U... for travel in July. I don't even want to go into the incompetence on that one.

 

Sometimes I feel that the Climbing Club is succeeding in spite of the university, not because of the university.

Well, I see nothing has changed since I left U-Dub 8 years ago. All those people you had to deal with are probably rejects from The Daily staff.

Actually, I had the pleasure of meeting Timmy at a little dinner party last night. After he ran through a preview of his multi-media slide show. I gotta say, he's one funny motherfucker, and this ain't your typical (snoozzzzz) slideshow. Nice work Gary thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

It sort of too bad that Gary put in a lot of work into it, but free is free. And there is the extra benefit of being able to drink beer while watching the show.
