      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!

A Celebration of Two Lives Well Lived



Mountain Madness is hosting an event next Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007 at REI's flagship store in Seattle, WA to celebrate the adventurous lives of Christine Boskoff and Charlie Fowler. The event will also raise funds for the continued recovery effort of Chris. The search effort has been tentatively called off due to weather, but will continue once conditions improve. Olympia-based climbing guide Dan Mazur, who was part of the party that gave up their own ascent to Mount Everest to help a stranded Australian climber, will speak at the event. REI is donating the facilities, and there will be product giveaways donated by National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and area companies to help raise additional funds for the search and recovery effort. Mountain Madness is donating a trip and courses. The general public is invited...

I appreciate your consideration. I believe that the January 4th fundraising event that Mountain Madness is hosting at Seattle REI for the Boskoff-Fowler Search and Rescue Fund is important.


For that reason, I have added an event posting to the Events forum.


As Around-n-Over, we are helping Mountain Madness in this fundraising effort since 12-30-2006, hence all donations since then are tax-deductible. All funds raised will be used specifically to defray costs related to the search and rescue effort. Any surplus funds will be used to honor the legacy of Christine Boskoff and Charlie Fowler at the discretion of the Mountain Madness Board of Directors.


Please consider contributing to this fund and attending the January 4th event.


Thank you.
