I still can't believe that the weekend chosen is the one weekend this spring that I am unable to make it out there. I will be there in spirit, though.

This is shaping up to be the mother of all ST parties and is the perfect way to honor Jim, whose legacy spans the decades from the 60's to the present.

Todd, thanks for doing this. I will certainly send a check and urge everyone else to dig deep to do so. A climber of Jim's stature would be a national hero in Europe, able to live comfortably on his reputation. We can't change how our culture chooses its sports stars, but we who know the history of American climbing can show that we appreciate Jim's contribution by helping him out here.

I need to email John to see if he'll be making it out from LA.

I'm gonna one up the fish quality at the last (for Roy).

I gotta get my chops down again... I think next year I'm going to set up a Sushi By Nature tent at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. Going big time....


So... again... who's Jim climbing with on the Sunday after the event? The sushi chef? ;-)

Shirt design almost finished. I might be adding a nice piece of art from one of our own, so waiting to see if that will happen. If not, it will still be THE shirt to have!

Working towards our goal of $10,000 by April 24th, we are offering a big wall metal set, probably for collecting, but if you want to hammer these into the stone (their actual intended use...)...go for it. The set has 6 items.....one RURP, on Z pin, one baby angle, on fat LA, one standard angle, and one sawed off. 4 of the 6 are signed by Jim. I would like to get $100 , or higher is anyone is willing to chip in more (once again...). Today is Friday;...highest bid on Sunday night 10 PM is in ....(I will try to be prompt with the deadline). Your chance to help out the Bridwells, help us get closer to our goal, and to own a piece (actually pieces ) of climbing history. (I have 3 sets of these....this is set one)....With your help, the help of the climbing industry, we can reach our goal by April 24th. (You will be getting that tax return soon;...time to throw it down for The Bird)....and this would make a great Valentine's gift for your sweetheart.....nothing says " I love you " quite like some big wall iron.....thanks Todd Gordon

Todd-

Iff'n you could get someone to get someone to make some really good quality prints of those slides you could make some sales. Tried to make it out for the 14th thingy, but after 4 hours and only making 50 miles I came home. Forgot it was a holiday weekend. I hate SoCal traffic....

Edit: is there an auction here? I pledge $200 for whatever it is.
