Evening Meets (2003)

Bouldering & Bingeing Comp

Wed 15th Jan, 2003

Indoor Meet.

So the post-Festive blues have set in. Christmas and Hogmanay have been & gone and what have you got to show for two weeks of fun, frolick and debauchery? Endless bottles of smelly stuff from various relatives & acquaintances you'd long thought had passed on to the land of low gravity; the rumbling remnants of indigestion that even the strongest liver salts wont touch; and worst of all a credit card bill that suggests a wonderful time was had by all, but of which your mind has nothing but fleeting and disturbed memories of indescribable liqueurs downed from some stranger's stiletto whilst standing on a bar table and gurgling your heart out to a Karaoked version of Slade's Merry Christmas. But worse by far is the sense of disbelief when getting out of the shower you glimpse an horrendous vision of your head and Craig Marsden's body. How, in just two weeks, could turkey and stuffing have converted to 6 stone of blubber!

Well don't fear - the cure is here! Guarenteed to restore mind and body to some semblance of balance, burn off the surplus lard, and give you hope, and maybe a little excited anticipation, for what the coming year holds.

So what is this cure-all, this elixir of life, this panacea ????..?

A Bouldering Comp' - wot a grand idea I hear you all shout with enthusiasm!

What could be better than putting your aging limbs and sagging stomachs through their paces at a friendly, not-too-competitive (take note Rick) climbing outing encouraged by calls of support from your bestest chums - and all followed by a curry and a pint of Robinson's finest at a nearby hostelry.

After the enthusiasm and support for last years bouldering competition - regardless of age (old Rob Allen - 73 - got his crumbling bones up some problems) and size (Craig & Rick came along - damage to wall has now been repaired!), I am organizing another for this year. So if you're interesting in demonstrating your grace, poise & elegance, or even your thuggery, skittery foot work and fear of heights, then make a note of Wednesday 15th January.

The script will be much the same as last year - arrive anytime after 6.00pm, 'compete' (in its loosest sense) till 9ish - then out for a curry at a local curryhouse/pub for good food, banter and prize giving.

The venue is Glossop Wall, where problems across the full range of KMC ability (3b - 4a) will be set to test your metal and embarrass you in front of friends and family - but don't let that put you off, you can rest safe in the knowledge that there's always someone less competent than yourself - Rick will be there!

During the spring and summer months evening meets are held outdoors at local crags, usually on Wednesdays, weather permitting. Keep an eye on the scribbles for the latest information. Indoor climbing wall meets start again in the autumn.

Some lucky people may be able to get out climbing nice and early, but this will vary depending on work hours and the traveling distance. Generally you should find KMC climbers at the crag by 6pm and some might still be there after its gone dark.

If you have any questions about coming along to a meet, or if you want to try and arrange car sharing, etc., then just send us an e-mail. For the latest information check the Scribble pages.
