Hey,
Can anyone enter the Bouldering Comp on the 28th or is it by invitation only for those who attended the first 2?

I will be in town and would be keen to lose my comp virginity while I'm there!!

Anyone can enter this round. Just rock up on the day, pay your $15 and boulder you heart out....]

I think its only the finals where u must have competed in one of the previous rounds to compete.

Sweet thanks Phil.

Can anyone tell me what the format is? Is it a jam style where you cruise around and try to tick as many problems as possible getting points for difficulty and number of tries?

Thanks!

Hi Takeit4granite,

Format of comp.
-Runs from 11am to 3 pm
-Numerous problems scoring from 1 to 10. Problems denoted by colour of holds rather than the Northern American way of marking with tape.
-Top 6 problems count (multiply by 10 to get final score)
-Number of tries are not counted...

Cheers Martin

Hi Brian, there is a good chance I will be there. Just look for the old man falling off everything.

O.K.Bumblydad, if you are geriatric then I've got one foot in the grave.

Personally, i reckon its great that you guys are climbing regardless of age. Marty and Malcolms results in the comps just go to show that the old fogies :) can still cut it with the younguns... .

Cheers, Phil.

I was going to say that Tibor but I thought it was one knee and a couple of fingers, have you got those T-shirts?

Thanks for the replies.
We arrived in Melbourne yesterday. AHHH the land of drive through bottle shops, TimTams and 4 & 20 pies!!

Once the jetlag wears off I would be keen to hook up with some folks at one of the gyms in town.

I am staying in Menzies Creek, but can find my way around to where ever.

Thanks!

Brian if you need a lift to the bouldering comp send me an e-mail. I live in Kallista which is 10 min away from Menzies Creek. I can also give you a tour of the finest drive-through bottle shops in the eastern suburbs !!

Jevon.

Thanks for the welcome!

It is great to be here. Lots has changed since I was last here 4 years ago! The freeway rules, it takes half the time to get anywhere!

I am planning to go to the gym in Nunawading (Sp?) today but will try to make it to Vic Ranges for Tuesday.

See you there!

Hey Jevon,

Are you still planning on going to the comp on Sunday?
I am keen to take you up the offer for a ride!

I sent you an e-mail with the number where I am staying, if you can give me a call that would be great!!

Thanks
Brian
