Some of you may know Roy has been struggling with a long term, debilitating medical condition affecting his arms.
(this has been an ongoing issue since 1997 involving the muscles and tendons)

No definitive diagnosis has been rendered and no effective therapies have been found, despite the fact that he has spent a lot of money with numerous doctors trying to cure it. Roy has been unable to work since June 2007 as a result.

Let's get together and help Roy out!

Man, Rick, you need to take that show on
the road. Like, bring it back to Colorado, so the rest of the Eldo Prancers
could see it too!
I can't be there to see it, but I'll certainly send
some to Tar, one of the great posters and climbers (and of
course a real gentleman, for sure) at the Taco Stand!
Here Here for Roy!!!!

How CAN we get this on the road? I am arranging a few other shows in the Portland area and would like to see how we could arrange this too.

I'm a crap shoot on making it to Josh, but I got some classic Persona swag that I'd donate to the cause for the auction....

How many tacoians even know what Persona was?

Pronunciation: \pər-ˈsō-nə, -ˌnä\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural per·so·nae \-(ˌ)nē, -ˌnī\ or personas
Etymology: Latin
Date: 1909
1: Way swanky sh#t designed and sewn by Tarbuster from 1992ish-1997ish.

Great plan for a good cause.

Steve W & Ihateplastic:

Interesting idea of putting the slide show/benefit on the road.
It currently exists as a stand-alone event.

The show itself is essentially Dean Fidelman's collected resource of images for the Stonemasters book; this includes many of his own photos and many photos from the original Stonemasters.

Dean AKA Bullwinkle will need to chime in on this one;
I'm not sure what his overall promotional platform was meant to encompass...

All your thoughts are much appreciated.

I've got a Calendar and a Book to make, after that, sure I'll take the show on the road. . .it would be amazing to do a show with John L reading from the Book and the photo's on the Big Screen. . . DF

this is to help my friend Roy out. . .

You are quite generous with your time and resources Dean.
This means a lot to me.
Thank You.

A long way from where I started

Early April sounds like a good time for the next JT trip, so I'll try to make it.

Always enjoy Roy's posts -- both the words and the pictures.

I'm in Roy, you gonna attend...that'll bring in the girls fer sher.
The word on this NEEDS to get out and we should all attend to help with the Boy's situation, if we all only knew of Roy's contributions to the climbing's a no brainer.
Hope to see you and the beautiful Lisa there as well.
looking sketchy there...
