DATE POLL - Spring Gathering

Postby SurfNTurf » Mon Mar 18, 2013 12:50 pm

Has anyone started planning this event yet? The normal organizer hasn't been 'round these parts for a while now, and it's getting to be about that time. I know in the past the Gatherings have also been handled using a team-planning approach, but none of my private inquiries have turned up much of anything. I'm cool with getting the ball rolling, as long as I'm not stepping on anyone's toes.

EDIT: Based on the responses, I added a date poll here and will create another thread for a location poll. I can swing all of the above except May 4-5, but if that's the most popular option so be it. The polls will stay open for a week, and by this time next Tuesday we should have a date and location. \:D/

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

No Spring Gathering planning until you've cleaned the bathroom, young man.

Here's a proposed mini gathering for spring:

I'm sure someone else can come up with another one as well (and I'm sure you would do a fine job or organizing it).

I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

Step 1a. We propose a list of 5-6 possible places.

Step 1b. We propose a list of 2 possible weekends.

Uhm, so like I can take care of step 1b and stuff.

We could create a new poll with the losing options from last years poll...?!?

I like this option. Depending on which weekend we end up choosing, I would like to do this again.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

The benevolent dictator method has worked quite successfully in the past. The first person to assign a time and place wins.

Ready, GO!
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

No, Kris, Spring is for the democracy. Benevolent dictatorships are for Fall.
