hey there say, todd.... wow, sounds just great ...
not too hot, and not too cold...

:)

have a sweet memory time, you all...

and hope the dessert deserts show up, :))

if i was closer, i'd bring some... :)
home-made, but sweet enough, and not full of the
modern-day yuck-ingrediants, :))

hmmm, but then, perhaps they'd not be any fun to look forward to,
then, :))


happy god bless to all!

Hey Todd,

Heard rumors that Jim Angione and Todd Battey may appear as well.

What a shindig.

Susan/Todd,

Will you need more tables? I have a 3'X 8' piece of heavy duty plywood we use at our family gatherings.

MisterE, Glenn Denny showed a great picture of you as a wee tyke at Camp 4 at the Oakdale gathering. Cheers, Lynne

The Mrs. and I are getting in Saturday morning and hoping to get some climbing in before the shindig. Any climbers planning on meeting anywhere in the park to climb Saturday morning/day?

Think we'll hit a spot with TRs next to road to get a bunch in before the afternoon party. Lizard's Hangout or something like that.

What were you thinking?

Didn't have anything particular in mind Roots, just seeing what others are doing, perhaps meet and climb with some of the ST crew if possible. My lady can't really lead belay yet, so looking for some easy top rope setups for now. Thanks for the heads up.

Roots and dirt claud, keep us posted it would be fun to cruise by and maybe even tie on for one climb before "work". Cheers, Lynne

My friend Anne Yeagle is going to attend as well.

Really excited to climb at Joshua Tree, see many friends, and most importantly, honor Blitzo.

Ok, we are getting close to the event.

A few points:

This is a MEMORIAL and a party. The MEMORIAL portion will be taking place in the late afternoon/early evening, approximately from 3pm to 7pm. This is the catered part of the evening, and is geared more around friends, family, and people on the RSVP list.

The food and drink was ordered a while ago and was for a fairly firm number of people, thus the RSVP list. With the ever swelling guest list and random "I'll be there" guys, those resources are going to be stretched thin. So, if you are not real big on the memorial part, did not know Blitzo, or just want to party, please show up around 7pm. It might also be a good idea to bring some communal beer to share.

If you are looking for something to bring to help out, bring dessert type things, finger foods, bags of chips, more beer, and then more beer. There will be a few giant ice chests where you can drop off the beers for everyone to enjoy. Everyone, and especially Blitzo, liked good beer. Share your favorite.

This weekend is also the FREE get into the National Park weekend. Campgrounds will be very busy. Know where you are going to bivy or at least have some sort of plan. Camping at Todds is a long tradition, but ideally you will have other arrangements.

This event is taking place in a neighborhood. Be neighborly. Be courteous. Don't get your car stuck in some dudes cactus garden at 2am. Be low key.

If you don't know how to get to Todds, email someone for directions.

Continue to watch this thread for updates.

Thanks Russ, Susan, Todd and everyone else involved for pulling this all together. Mo and I will be showing up to help on Saturday. I will be happy to bring some non-alcs for those who like beer (in the spirit of Blitzo) but don't want the buzz, and some dessert to share. Looks like there will be need of extra with that list as big as it is!
