"Dayum, Cleetus, you got the best Rendezvous they is."

That's what we hear every year in May at the New River Gorge, and this year, we'd like to hear you say it, too. Check (http://www.newriverrendezvous.com) for all the info. We have not raised the price of admission this year! It's still $25 for food, drink, clinics, camping and much more (comp registration is extra). Space is limited and once again, pre-registration is required. Word on the street is that hundreds of spaces are already gone, so don't wait until it's too late.

New River hospitality, trad, sport, bouldering and TR competitions, thousands of world-class routes and boulders, a beautiful venue, a rockin' par-tay and the greatest volunteers on Earth, who, BTW, get free admission and schwag (HINT). What more could you want?

The dates are May 15-17. Who's in? Smile

They're asking only for volunteers from previous years. It's on the webpage somewhere. You can find it.

Hopefully, I'm in. I moved away last year and missed it, so I went ahead and registered for it this year in the hopes that it will force me to buy a plane ticket and take off work. My old rendezvous shirts are getting a little stinky; it's time to get a new one...

Thanks.

I'll probably be out there for a couple days prior anyway. My exams end on the 13th, at the latest so I'm going there or the Red for a couple days before I go home to work.

Already registered a few weeks ago. Last year was my first year and it was a blast. I'm still trying to convince all my friends to go, but none of them can seem to commit to it yet, but hopefully I'll also meet up with the group I met and climbed with last year.

Really want to go this year. My younger DD is 6yo now, so she will be able to participate in kid's activities, hopefully.

Jay, a question:If I am going with kids, do I have to register/pay for them separately, or are they covered by my registration?

I'm a dork, I couldn't figure out what it means when the Website says "Event T Shirt Kids ages 5 are free and do not have to register". (Taken verbatum from the registration form)

Under-5 are free, but older still need to register? All are free and the ones over 5yo get a T-shirt? I need a translation please.

I'm in! w00t! Already registered, waiting with bated breath for April 1st to register for a clinic.

I don't know if I'll be able to convince my friend to head down with me, so I'll probobly be looking for partners. Lena, if you're bringing the kids does that mean you'll be down with Kostik?

I have a question on the crack climbing clinics. Has anyone attended them? I've been trying to get better at jamming every time I go out but still get worked on certain sizes. The description says be able to TR 5.7 but I'm climbing 9s and some different style tens on trad lead. Is this clinic going to benefit me? Thanks.

Also, what's the deal with dogs? I'm going to the NRG as soon as school lets out and my dog is coming with. I plan on staying through the vous until the next weekend so I can't really leave him somewhere.

I took this clinic last year and we got on New Yosemite at Junkyard Wall , if you can get this route, you'll get more 5.9 crack practice than you can handel, on TR of course. Just get your instructor to leave quickly so you can claim this route. Good Luck

I've been on New Yosemite, but it's been a while. It was when I was first being shown how to hand jam. Maybe I need to go back before the vous.

Sorry, I haven't been around much. I'll try to answer some questions and redirect the others.

1. Volunteers: we still need some, and it is NOT limited to previous volunteers. Email rendezvousvolunteer(at)yahoo.com, if you're interested in helping out. Word is that we may not need any more 12-hour volunteers (or we may -- I don't know!), but if not, we probably still need some folks to do a few hours here and there. If you're one of those, you won't get schwag, but you will be on the VIP list and you won't have to pay the $25 to register.

2. Children at the Vous: email Maura(at)waterstoneoutdoors.com. She's the final word on all this. I think, but am not certain, that kids 6 and up have to pay.

3. Overqualified for the crack clinic? I have no idea. Email Maura.

4. Dogs? No problem, but they have to be leashed. Even if NRAC is flexible on that, the Park folk won't be.

I'm in.

If anyone is interested (re: kids): Maura says that kids under 12yo are free, and you don't have to indicate anywhere on the registration form that you are bringing kids with you.

There is a kids climbing clinic this year! Sounds cool!

Yes, indeedy. Odub is taking the kids climbing on Saturday! That dude is aces.

FYI, I'm helping with the volunteer coordinating now, 'cause my wife is slammed. AND, WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS! We don't need any more 12-hour folks, but we do need others to fill in isolates slots here and there. PM me here at RC.com or email me (rendezvousvolunteer(at)yahoo.com). You won't get schwag, but you will get in for free. If you've already registered and paid, we'll refund you cash when you get there!

Heeeellllllp! Unimpressed
