      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!

Is Sponsorship a Sin?

Recommended Posts

After watching Scott's presentation of this topic, its really funny to read through the thread and see how many people did not understand Scott's point, which resulted in posts that are way of basis.

 

To address one point brought up earlier, I feel that TR's from this website are just at the level of sitting around a campfire and telling stories. I enjoy reading TR's to look at pictures and hear people's stories. Self-promotion statrs when it leaves this community of climbers/skiers and goes to a larger press (NWMJ, AAJ, Alpinist, Climbing, newsfeeds, etc). Whether or not they are worthy, well thats up for the Semple test do decide!

I found it humourous that someone described a thread here as "...a very serious conversation..."

 

Until recently, this particular question was left to the privacy of the brew pub...but then about a month ago Scott Semple wrote a blog entitled, "Is Sponsorship a Sin?" This question started a very serious conversation in the climbing community, both on his blog and in forums like cascadeclimbers.com.
