|Another bump for several reasons ...
The Chockstone site is likely to celebrate 100,000 posts and 3000 registered members in this its sixth year of ongoing service to the climbing community.
We have not had a Chockstone Gathering for a while now.
Since the 6th anniversary of Chockstone is coming up on 6/06/2008, which is the Friday commencement of Queens Birthday long-weekend (except WA), ... we have a little time (five weeks), to organise a Celebrate Chockstone Gathering.
If anyone is interested in putting faces to user-ids, sharing the camaraderie of a rope, swapping warm'n'fuzzy campfire yarns ~ (general BS ? !), helpful techniques, comparing racks (for the obsessed!), etc?; then this upcoming long weekend could prove an enjoyable time to meet, greet, and climb.
Given it is a long weekend, I think people may be prepared to travel a little further to partake in this opportunity, and I suspect many would be going to places like Arapiles anyway?
What do the forum persons (includes lurkers!), reckon re venue, etc?
Post your ideas and lets get it happening!
