      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!

Mt Hood Search and Rescue Fundraiser

Recommended Posts

After the latest news I think I will just send a check to PMR directly instead of going to the LL. I have trouble going to a "benefit" hosted by the ones who are actually partially responsible for PMR to go on more rescues then before and place them in more potential danger.......Maybe the benefit theme can be, "raise money for PMR's new MLU Fund, needed for increased rescues on Mt. Hood due to the passing of HB 2509." You could even get Matty and Co. up on stage to thank all of those for supporting PMR and encourage those in attendance to give even more with PMR needing it to help with all of the expected new calls for rescue when someone pulls their MLU.

Thats too bad...I was looking forward to KICKING YOUR ASS! Just kidding!

 

That is really too bad. No love for the folks that turned a bad thing into a good thing?

One, there is no way you would kick my ass. I've seen pictures of you. Two, I can support PMR with check in the mail or at a slide show. Don't need to support the glorification of recreational darwinism.

You are probably right! I was joking anyway. I hate fighting. :tup:

Perhaps a strong presence by the climbing and SAR community at this event with our thoughts that this bill is a bad idea would help the cause.

We all wrote letters, some of us attended meetings, now we should make it to this event -- supports two causes with one beer drinking binge!!!

Well spoken

 

There you go Ryan. Now you got no reason not to come and share a beer with me. C..mon! You can do it.

Don't forget, this may represent a chance for CLIMBERS to voice their opinions to the media directly; it's a small chance, I know, but maybe our message won't be distorted.

I hope I get a chance to put some cc.com names to faces tonight. We'll be there a little after 7. Just look for the three kids in matching Barkdog (Mt. Bachelor Avalanche Rescue K-9) T-shirts and I'll be close by.

Very fun event. Kudos to the group putting it on. I spoke with Matty, Christina and Dan. Very friendly, nice people who really wanted to help those who helped them. Lots of people, good beer and some great items to bid on. Someone outbid me on the start climbing gear package, but we went home with a case of wine and a tour for 8 at Duck Pond Winery. Can't complain about that!

Glad they did so well. This does, however, explain why I was the ONLY person (give or take 3) out climbing.

Here are pics from the event. There is at least one cc.comer in photos on the second page.

 

You got the back of my head in two shots. Hee hee. I saw you taking pictures of the dogs when my wife and i arrived. I did not know it until I saw your pictures. Great shots. Good times.

I didn't take the pictures, Kevbone. I just found a link on Matt Ceffinos blog. My hubby was the one with the camera that night.

I did not try the Velvet porter, but some other beer that mr. rmncwrtr said I would like better. That was very yummy. It was a very good time!

Over $20,000! Excellent! :grin: I went home with a doggy backpack for the dog and some Velvet beer in my belly for me. Guess I got there too late since I didn't see Velvet when I got there.
