Best reason: It's a BASH!

Response to Convince me to go to the Konvention


I have attended every convention since 2000 (Hawaii), though I had been in the club for about nine years before I was able to get to my first one. There is something special and unique at every convention. As the others noted, it's a great way to pick up information about other peaks, meet other climbers (and possible climbing partners!), and enjoy the camaraderie of other (crazy, driven, whatever adjective you prefer) highpointers. I have learned new things at every convention. Besides, the fun of the "back porch liars' club", plus the special added attraction this year of the "roast" of Grand Poobah Don Holmes is not to be missed. And aren't you just a bit curious to meet some of these folks that you read about in the Newsletter? You'll meet them and folks of every background, and in age from several months to over nine decades.

Roger and the Urbanski Boys are putting on a GREAT event (I won't judge as to whether it will be better than the wonderful Wisconsin convention I hosted in 2007). You will be warmly welcomed and your company very much appreciated. I hope we see you there. JES
