      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!

Boskoff-Fowler SAR Fund - fundraising event

Recommended Posts



Mountain Madness is hosting a fundraising event on January 4th between 5:30-7:30 pm at Seattle REI for the Boskoff-Fowler Search and Rescue Fund. D a n Mazur, NOLS and area companies are involved to make this event successful.


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.

They will be missed. Christine was an amazing person that I'm fortunate to have known. Charlie was the quiet mountain man that I met a few times and left an impact with me.

Both left us too early and I'll carry fond memories for the rest of my life.




Mountain Madness will be hosting an open to the public event to celebrate the life of Christine Boskoff and raise funds to help cover the costs incurred for the search and recovery efforts to find her in China. Below is a rough outline of the event schedule. I will be speaking at this event. I hope you may be able to join us and taking a brief moment to celebrate Christine’s life and accomplishments.
