Because I don’t have quite enough to do in my “free” time, I decided to form a nonprofit corporation today. Anticipating a few upcoming changes in the local peninsula rock climbing community, which you’ll hear about soon — maybe even next week if I get my butt in gear — this will be a nonprofit entity devoted to climbing education and experiences in Kitsap County. In retrospect, I probably should have called it the Peninsula Climbers Association, to wrap in our friends to the North in Clallam and Jefferson Counties, but oh well. I wasn’t thinking about it at the time. So far, the paperwork is in the mail, and we have an email address — Stay tuned for more news, but in the meantime, if you’re interested in staying in touch about climbing events, activities, and issues please drop me an email or leave me a comment and eventually I’ll put together an email list and google group or something.

We had a lovely night at the Bremerton Vertical World yesterday. It was super crowded… Brad (and his helpers 🙂 were teaching either the hugest intro to climbing class ever, or, an Olympic College class. The newbies were attentive and some had really natural skill, so they were much better than average first-timers to share the gym with. Our climbing night was cut short by a snowstorm nobody expected… not equipped for driving in snow, we had to head home earlier than we’d hoped, but it was still a good night.

My dietary surveillance has sucked, so I’m back to feeling like I need to get in shape or I’m going to hurt myself. And yet, the chocolate mint cookies on the kitchen counter are calling my name…
