January 27 – Volunteers needed

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Please note, this is a private party, there are four ways you can attend:
– Have a membership to The Front Climbing Club
– Obtain a ticket from a sponsoring company
– Talk to Deric about volunteering
– Be a competitor at the James Brown SuperBad comp

Hello Everybody!

I just wanted to spread the word about a fundraising party that’s being held for Matt at The Front Climbing Club on Saturday, January 27th. The party is being sponsored by a few exhibitors of Winter O.R. as well as some local companies who’ve been kind enough to help out. Since it’s a corporate sponsored event, the sponsors will have tickets at OR and will be giving them out as they see fit. Members of the Front are free to attend as well as competitors from their comp earlier that day.Another way to attend and help the cause is to help out with the party. We need personal to donate a bit of time during the event, mostly just keeping an eye on the place and making sure things go smoothly.

What we’re looking for are:

Roughly 5 people to help with arranging the gym from 7-9p.m on the 27th.

Around 5-10 people to help out in shifts or as superior commonsense kicks in during the event from 9p.m – roughly 1a.m…. basically just emptying trash, asking for donations, trying to keep the place fairly clean and keeping people from doing anything silly.

Then 5 people to help re-arrange the gym the next day, Jan 28th from 10a.m-12

The party will be a blast! Free drinks(alcohol and non-alcoholic), light snacks a D.J. and no cover! We’re only asking for donations so hopefully we can round up some more money to help Matt adjust to life outside the hospital.

Please email if you’re free to help!

Thanks in advance to: Petzl, Black Diamond, The Front, Lortsher & Vlasic Catering and Revolution Climbing for their contributions!

Happy New Year!

January 27 – James Brown SuperBad Memorial Comp

Sunday, January 7th, 2007


Make your plans now.

Check-in at 1p, event starts at 2p.Citizen’s comps at The Front are for all ages and abilities. These are fun community events with an emphasis on camaraderie rather than competition. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did! Learn more about Citizen’s Comp’s at The Front here.

At the last comp we tested our new online scoring system. This comp we’ll open the online scoring for everyone. The more that participate, the faster we can get to the swag give-away. Plus, you can check your placement during the comp, or find the easy problems. Here’s how it works. When you check-in, we’ll give you your three character scoring code. With this code, you can enter any of your scores during the comp – do it as you’re waiting to do your next problem, do it for all problems you complete. It automatically computes your top scores.

– eliminate that ‘after the comp, wait’n for the raffle’ time
– increase scoring accuracy – you can check your own final score
– find those easy problems that everyone is doing
– your friends at home can check how you’re doing from the comfort of the internet

Early registration is now open. Please! Pre-register early. This helps us plan for the event, and it will really speed your way through the check-in process on the day of the event.
