      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!

FRED BECKEY "TRIBUTE BOOK"; Submissions Request

Recommended Posts

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 mbondpauli@hotmail.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.

Megan Bond and Alex Bertulis

Thanks to the organizer(s) and all who attended. It was good to meet some of the early Cascade pioneers. Lowell did a great job uncovering and presenting priceless videos of Beckey as a youngster.

 

PMS - Ageless Trail Blazer Phil Leatherman is your first don't know on the top row. The guy is in his mid to late 60s and still moving just as fast as anyone. His photos appear throughout the CAG series.

Thanks Tom, and Mike. I think you are right Rob about Tom Stewart. It has been suggested that the fellow in the light colored shirt (first row, far left) is Steve Johnson.

Would anybody like to try improving it?

 

Go for it! You can do it!

 

If nobody else does it, I might. But it could take a long time, because I have lots of other projects to work on. There must be lots of people out there who could lend a hand in this. Anybody can contribute to wikipedia, as far as I know. Fred deserves a more complete writeup and a better photo.
