The fundraising link goes to the John Long Donations Fund in the name of Krista Goodsitt.

If there is a gathering in JT and John is there telling stories, someone record it please! :-)

If there's a raffle or auction I'll donate a set of my Gstrings, well...errr....uh, not one of MY Gstrings, but a set of my company's Gstring Climbing Grips.

Riley can run shotgun on the loonies with the Fish. The Fundraiser that I'm proposing here is separate from the chipin link. Hopefully John will be mobile enough by the Spring to attend and be apart of this Event. This would be something to not only help and give back to Largo but to also bring together the community that he's Mentored for so many years.


Edit, Tami, your work is Amazing! ! ! That would be awesome, details to follow as they get worked out. D

Dean I'll donate a painting to the cause. If you are unfamiliar with my work, ask Largo :-)
It could be auctioned for the cause.
PM me please if this is something you'd like to do.

I'm surprised how often people don't realize that getting injured or sick is very expensive even with insurance. Any insurance is better than none, but most insurance is pretty weak.

Looking forward to hearing the date and hoping it is workable for us.

edit: And agreed Locker about no insurance. I went a long time without any and lucked out. Many do not. :/

I'd be glad to help however I can, and attend any fundraiser, if I can. Just let me know.

Can you make it happen before the Sushifest?(Otherwise I have to choose one over the other...and it is all about me, isn't it?)

I haven't been able to keep up on the thread about his injury. Just read the beginning part and hadn't yet been mentioned the extent. What a bummer for him. I don't think anyone goes to a climbing gym thinking "I could be seriously injured." I mean, I know we know the potential is there, but it seems such a freak occurrence. Sorry to know he has been hurt so badly.

We are all one injury and or illness from bankrupt, and homeless.

Bullwinkle and I know as well as others how hard it is to come back from severe ankle breaks. Im 14 years out from a shattered right ankle and well every day is a painful reminder at how that one day changed my life.

Best of luck JL

You will survive! watch out for those pain meds they are brutal on the body and the mind.
looking sketchy there...

Of course I'm in for helping out with a Fundraiser (in addition to the Chip-In -- which I am assuming is on the up and up).

Considering the contributions John has made to this sport, I think it should not be a question of if we should have a fundraiser but when and where.

Highest bidder gets a signed and numbered 11x14. John gets the dough.

Bullwinkle, just let me know who, where and how.

Boy, I'd love to throw down some $ but I need $ for my own medical expenses right now. Sorry to hear there is surgery in the plural planned for Mr. Long. That sucks! I at least have been able to avoid that sad fate in my current convalescence. I hope others aren't as lame [pun intended] as I am and can donate to our favorite and decidedly non-pusillanimous bastion of climbing rugosity.

Locker, yes Todd's if he's into it. You don't have to donate to enjoy the Fundrasier, it's about community and showing up too.

Uh, showing up would be $ for me. Quite a bit, in fact. I wish John L the best and that there is a large support from the community local and otherwise.
