We are having (once again) another New year's Eve kid friendly party. All are welcome (Adults, kids, climbers, friends, strangers, visiors, Canadians, young and old). We will be having the EAST COAST BALL DROPPING 9 PM "happy new years" celebration...so the kids don't have to stay up to midnite.
There will be snacks, friends, new years stuff, balloons, a campfire, people, kids, etc. We have done this a couple years now;..and it's way fun. I'm sure some people will stay up until midnite..;..I'll try.

People can arrive at about 6 PM...stay as long as you wish. If you wish to camp or sleep in your car;..that's cool. No fees, no rangers, lot's of room...sleep in the desert or set up a tent;..no problem. THis is not a booze fest or smoke out;..it's a kid-centered party...but I'm sure , as in the past, local and visiting climbers will attend......
The weather is fantastic now;....warm and beautiful.

Still too late for this geezer, 9 PM is bedtime, I'm serious!

Happy New Years to the Gordon clan and the rest of the TacoStand!

We found a need locally for something to do with our three kids..and the kids of our friends......so basically.....most of our friends who live here and have kids...they come over..they kids love it;..they run around, hang by the campfire, play video games, pop ballons, eat a bunch of snacks....some sleep over, .....it's really fun...and there was a need in our community for such an event. We are expecting 30 or 40 people........something like that. It's a fun evening for all, no doubt....and the kids have other kids to hang out with......Tucker Tech will probably be there;....extra bonus....

Canadians don't pee on carpets, we are much too polite for that. Thanks for the invite but our bedtime is earlier than your kids, how about some pre New Years climbing?

Thanks, A great shot of me trying not to pee myself on your last climb!

Sounds like a lot of fun. We are out of town this year so we can't make it. My kids are ten and nine, they are always looking for other kids to play with when we go go JTree. They really aren't that interested in climbing, they just like to explore and be kids. If you do this next year, we will make an effort to be there.
