Reading back over the early parts of the thread - what happened to the day trip in Central Vic? that sounded alright (Lama?). No takers?

Burnley bouldering? wouldn't get out of bed for that - no offense Steph ... I'm sure you like fine in a catsuit ;)

The day at Mt Teneriffe turned out to be a fizzer due to the hot weather on the day and M9 was one of only a brave few that went... Too hot for me!

Australia Day Long weekend at Buffalo is out for me as I will be in SA watching the Tour Down Under! It recently received ProTour status (first race outside Europe to get this status!) so will have quite a few of the worlds best road cyclists competing!

It sounds like Buffalo is going to be perfect - it certainly won't be crowded - everyone will all be off doing other stuff, so heaps of routes for those who turn up...

With the turnout from the popular annual VCC gathering and others being up there on the long weekend it will be anything but quiet!

the other option if catani campground is full is to book in to one of the campgrounds down the hill in porepunkah. there is a nice river.

There is an interesting (unusual but good style), read here about the 3rd Chockstone Gathering in a rhinckle trip report.

Bump.
Resurrection of another old thread with a more appropriate title to float the idea of a celebration.

>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!




Subsequently we have already had some initial feedback (copy'n'paste from another thread below).

If crew are headed this way anyway to climb in the great conditions we have at the moment (friction)
Then it makes sense to have a get together to meet all the chockstone crew, we could have a banner,
Booby rigged of course, to prevent relocation, and a BBQ & drinks, sounds good, can hardly wait.

No, it has not been held at Araps before.
