Puma Posted November 23, 2008 Share Posted November 23, 2008 Dear Climbing Friend, PLEASE TAKE YOUR PLACE IN HISTORY! FRED BECKEY’S Birthday is coming up …..and in anticipation of this celebration, we are creating a gift for him from the world-wide-climbing community…… We are asking for your written contributions for a "Tribute Book" : a collaborative gift from anyone who has known Fred, climbed with Fred, or experienced mountain-life or trail life with Fred …. Your one-to-three pages of storied experiences with Fred - in your own words - your thoughts, encounters, risks, incidents, transportation failures, food-gaffs, weather dangers, trail perils and reflections will all be bound up for him in a book for his reading …. The writings and reflections of you and other climbers from around the globe that have spent time in his company and have become acquainted with him on any level will be a book that we know he will treasure. We anticipate that some of these memories will be funny, sad, historical, sentimental, anecdotal, factual (fiction even??), etc. But we are looking forward to including all of them and presenting them in a bound book to him, from you, from us. PLEASE EMAIL SUBMISSIONS BY JANUARY 11, 2009 DEADLINE TO email@example.com. Be sure to include your FULL NAME and a telephone number. Please also forward this request for stories to all those you feel would want to contribute their experiences to this labor of love. Thank you in advance for the generosity of your memories.
