Planet Granite San Francisco is hosting our Annual Fundraiser on April 27. Alex Honnold, Greg Barnes and I will be doing a presentation on what the ASCA has been up to. Alex will present his latest adventures. I'll tell the wild story of how the ASCA started and Ill throw is some BASE jumping cuz everyone seems to dig it. We will also have bolts on display, a silent auction, live Super auction, food, drink... its gonna be great!

Mark your calendars and please respond if you can attend

- THE IMPORTANT PART: PLANET GRANITE IS MATCHING ALL DONATIONS AT THE EVENT AND BEFORE APRIL 30.
This is where you come in even if you can't make the event. This is our big annual fundraiser. We are a bare bones non-profit and this is going to be a very big part of how we fund bolt replacement in 2011. Go to this page to donate http://www.planetgranite.com/asca

We need auction items. Here is a list of current auction items. If you have anything to add, it would be awesome!

In addition to the April 27 auction at the event, there is an ASCA eBay Climbing And Outdoor Gear Auction ends April 26-28

If you want to donate to the ASCA, please do so before April 30 so that it gets matched.

Along with this fundraiser, I will be holding a big auction on eBay. Ill be selling some of my old Aliens, pitons, climbing gear, outerwear along with anything else the climbing donates to be auctions.

 Shout out to Planet Granite SF! - They have helped us raise over $20,000 in the past and are a BIG reason the ASCA has been able to replace thousands of bolts in the last year. The ASCA has now replaced 8000+ bolts.

Awesome! I go to PG, and really want to learn more about bolting! My goal is to put up frequent bolts on Thunderbolt's summit block. Sierra could have a cool summit block sport-climb. : ) Than I will deal with Doodad..

That address is Chris' parents place. The official address for the ASCA is PO Box 1814, Bishop, CA 93515-1814, but the actual address right now is: ASCA c/o Greg Barnes, 603 Maestro Ct, San Jose, CA 95134-2606. We don't want to change the address since I move apartments fairly often (might have to move again in September), so for now my friends in Bishop send over the mail - but there is a delay, often several weeks.

CMac and PGSF: I'd like to go, but it looks like attendees must rsvp via Facebook which I don't want to join. Should I just show up waay early?

Yes, you don't need to RSVP on Facebook. That just helps us know how much room we need.
