I missed the Bridwell fest and was really bummed, can't miss this one, looks like it will be a great time and hope to climb and hang out with some climbing legends if possible, :), Thanks for all the hard work putting this on.

Looks like I'm not not going to make it. It's a big logistics thing with my Kindergartner. That, and if I go down to Josh to pay tribute to Blitzo, I gotta climb. And that's not feasible.

Meh, I'm bummed. Sooze, take me off the maybe list...

But Dirt Claud is a cool guy if you all get to meet him, good dude!

Cheers all. And God bless ya, Blitzo!

Blitzo Memorial Schedule

I know that a lot of you are traveling from great distance to join in the Celebration of Billy's life and his Memorial. With that in mind, please reference the schedule below and plan your travels & day accordingly. Also as a note, the time change is the weekend prior - so nightfall is upon us early around 4:45pm.

3pm ----- Food, Beverages & Mingling Begins
5pm ----- Bluegrass Music preformed by Erick Kramer Web
6pm ----- Memorial Service with story telling, memories and thoughts of our friend Blitzo
7:30pm -- Trio Jam Music preformed by Kelly Corbin, Andy Gorrill & Dennis McDade
9pm ----- Cactus Pricks plays with Big Al Bartlett, Dan Zacks, Donnie Reid & Mike (Mike's Bikes)

I know a lot of you truly cared for Blitzo and his passing is a great loss to our community. We encourage those attending the Memorial to arrive early, grab a plate of Food & Cold Beer and available for the 6pm service. Please don't be shy with your stories, we want to hear your thoughts and memories and share them with the group. I'm certain the memories will be choked with good humor and hopefully will bring more smiles than tears. The service will be casual, come up and speak on the Mic to the group then pass off to another loving friend.

Party to follow with more beer and tons of great local music. Thanks everyone for helping to put this Memorial together. The gathering of friends is something Blitzo always appreciated, let's do him proud.

hey there say, all...

i have a painting of blitzo, that i want to send... russ and sooze can present it to whoever the gift would best go to ...

but, i can't mail it... :( i've got five bucks left and i am trying to ask a two folks, nearby where i live... but,
if they can't help, i need a backup ready...
or i can't get this there in time to you all...

if anyone wants to volunteer to pay postage, please let me know... it is acrylic, as i had not time for the oil kind...


i can post it tomorrow, as i am still touching it up...
it is a faster work and not full of layers, but is still nice...

i'd have to have a paypal in for monday, or it'd not clear in time to mail it and as it is, i may have to do TWO day mail, which might be a bit more...



*these usually mail anywhere from 12-14... and about 18 for two day mail... sorry, i did not plan this right, money-wise, this time... or paint wise, but i had company...


just email me, if you want to help get this there... :)

Neebs, we'll cover it. I can't find your PayPal address in my PayPal history and believe you changed emails lately. Send me your new email addy and we'll get you taken care of via PayPal. As for mailing, Parcel Post or Priority Mail will be more than fast enough no need to second day air.... the Memorial isn't until the 9th.

More gifts for our Blitzo, you've already done soo much for him. You made him and his friends feel special. Thank you.

hey there say, sooze...

just sent you an email... okay, will try for the one that is best... regular, if the paypal goes through fast, but it usually takes 3 days...

and regular mail tells me, up to 7 days for it to get there...

check my email, however, this is acrylic and i CAN send it without a frame,
so THAT will make it go cheaper, too, if i need to send it faster... :)


i put an over amount, for you to send and i can send back some, if it only takes the 14.00 :)


HERE is the painting...


actually, in real view, it is a tad darker in the face and ground area...

you and russ WILL know, from gut-feeling where this will best go, and to whomever... :)


edit:
yeah, the face LIT up better, with the flash...

whoever it is for, can always put a small LIGHT above the frame, etc...


edit again:

YES, to whoever will be the recipients--FOR SURE you WILL NEED SOME kind of a SMALL LONG AREA light, to shine on the painting, either from above? or from an angle...if the painting is near a corner area, A nearby angle light seems to SHINE on it, will work good...


but--i couldn't risk ruining it, :O

Locker,

I can't wait to see you. I know it won't be the same without Billy. But I am thanking my lucky stars that I got to meet you, Fish Finder, Chelsea, Neebee, Will and so many others because of Billy.

We will be flooded....

But we will all be together :)
