Nick Kaz memorial thread #2

My sentiments too. It was a fitting send off for a great guy. I've never seen so many people at a funeral. We went out for a boulder at the Cape on the Central Coast on the way back to Sydney. At the end of the day, a beer was cracked and after a mouthful each, was poured on the rock with a resounding 'Cheers' to Nick.

I'll second those thanks, and thanks also to all the local people up there who obviously mucked in with catering and organisation to take the load off the Kaczorowski family.

This made the front cover of The Glebe, our local paper today. Story and pics were a nice tribute to Nick with some great quotes from friends and family. The only annoying thing was the recycling of the wrong info about the route name and the cause of the accident. They quoted it as Bucket Bunny Buttress and the reason because "a carrot bolt dislodged from the cliff face". It is a minor wrong detail but goes to show that the wrong story will continue to be spread once it was told to the first journo....

I just wanted to add my heartfelt thanks for sharing the day with us! We were also blown away by the shear number of people as well as all the effort and organisation that went into it! I don't think we got to talk to you Andrew (apologies), but I'm glad we did get to chat with your Mum and Kate, and to share some memories with others.

I have to add that I thought the photo slide show was fantastic!! And would like to suggest that now that the media attention has waned, that you might add a photo of Nick (I really liked the one where he was wearing the McSh*t shirt) to this site? Or maybe PM me a copy?

Can't wait to park myself on the bench... do let us know where it goes! :)

Thanks again!

Shame you didn't get the ultimate party animal (Tony Williams) to party with you guys!!!!!!! That would have made Nick really proud!!!!

Probably heading to Boronia one of the days on the weekend to really do some work on my project. Are you climbing at all? "I really want to climb well this year ...." - or have you forgotten after a few scotch on rocks??????

Smell you soon, Mr Capable ;p

Would like to have satyed on and partied but I gave it a good go while I was there. I nearly had liver failure with those 3 bottles of water that I drank before the eskies arrived!
It was a sad but very good send off for Nick. Thanks to Nick's family letting us attend and thanks to all the climbers that turned up.
In Mt Vic we have a day every year where we get together at the pub and remember one of the blokes that used to drink there, have a few beers, laugh and raise some money for charity.
How about us climbers get together every year and have a Nick Kaz climbing/memorial day (with a bit of drinking and partying thrown in) to remember the big fella? Maybe any cash raised coiuld go to the safe cliffs rebolting fund.
Safe climbing. Tony Williams.

Perhaps a new thread about this matter would've been a good idea.

To answer your question however, yes it has unfortunately happened before.

This is Andrew, I was belaying Nick when the bolt pulled and the rope cut. I just wanted to post to let people know that I've been in contact with the admin of the AAR and have corrected a few things with their report. A new version should be up soon. I'll also be reading the forum if any other questions come up that I can answer.

I'm really grateful to all the climbers' support when I talked to you at the memorial and those who emailed me offering help. I've always said that climbers are a collection of some of the best people in all the world and this has been pretty well demonstrated over the last couple of weeks. Even among such a good group of people, Nick stood out immediately to me as someone special.

Please be careful out there.

There's a gathering of a few of Nic Kazs friends at his Woodville house on the afternoon/evening of 4th April. A chance to have a few drinks and yarns as he would normally be doing on his birthday.

The memorial seat may be reefed out of its footing the same way the plaque to
canyoner Ian Knapp was recently removed and taken from Claustral canyon.

WTF? I doubt it. A seat has a practical purpose, especially when it will be located next to a carpark, toilet and picnic tables. I don't agree with plaques pasted randomly around the place, but having something useful and in memory is a much nicer concept.
