Next Friday the 20th of November, the Reel Rock Film Tour will be in KC. Hosted by The North Face and the American Alpine Club. It starts at 7 p.m. so get there (the North Face Store on The Plaza)for a good seat. Best part is admission is free, and there is swag to be had. Now wait, why the hell am I advertising this if there is swag. That just decreases my chances of getting some. I guess sometimes I am a Reel nice guy. Check out the link to the trailer, looks sweeeeet!

The 4th installment of 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell has come and gone, and like previous installments did not disappoint. A large KC contingency showed up to throw down their perseverance on the perfect sandstone of HCR. Dick Dower has a recap of his experience here. This year I opted to volunteer and cheer on the competitors, it was a lot of fun despite not having aching paws the following day.

I have made an executive decision that the fall climbing trip will be happening at none other than Sams Throne. Never gets old there does it. Well if it does I guess we will not be seeing you there. Email blast to follow. Gmail is currently not letting me access my contact list.

Hope everyone had a great summer. Despite being very mild I am psyched for Fall weather, which to me means perfect Arkansas climbing and resuming the KCCC schedule. Some of you might have some difficulty comprehending an actual schedule of events, rather than my my past m.o. of announcing the meeting a week ahead of time. Read it and weep (tears of joy for all of you organized types).
Tuesday the 1st- KCCC meeting at Backwoods Ron Rapper will be giving a slideshow on lastyears ascent of Gannett Peak. Starts at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday the 26th- 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell
Tuesday the 6th- KCCC meeting at Ibex. There maybe a short presentation, but most of the time will be spent climbing and reviewing skills. Starts 7 p.m.
Sat & Sun 10th/11th- Fall trip to Arkansas. Yeehaw!! You got a purdy Cam!
Tuesday the 3rd- KCCC meeting at Dynamic Earth. Jim Grace will be giving a presentation
on setting a record for hitting all 48 contiguous high points in a ridiculously short amount of
time. Starts 8 p.m.
Do you have an event that needs to be listed please let me know. Also most every meeting/event will also consist of food and drink during or afterwards, FYI. Looking forward to a good Fall.

It is summer and for the first time this morning it feels like it. Walking the dogs at 7 am i actually worked up a little sweat. Mornings like this mean it is time to head to higher ground. I still have one month before my planned trip to the mountains, but I would imagine that some of you have already been west. So send me stories of your summer adventures, so this blog has some new content. Pictures are also very welcome.
For all of you intellectuals who are scoffing my "summer" comment. Yes I know the solstice has not yet arrived.
