Get out your mixing bowls, aprons, and Grandma's secret recipe 'cause we're bringing back The Brownie Bake-Off to Rocktoberfest 2012.

The rules are simple:
1. Bake delicious brownies. Enough to share.
2. Drop them at the festival site Saturday before dinner. This will need to be done before dinner is served @ 6pm.
3. The great volunteers from Paragon sport and some randomly selected participants will serve as judges, "bestowing honors and accolades on those of you possessing the "art of the brownie"."
4. A sweet prize is given during the fiesta for the most awesome creation. Last year it was a real nice grip trainer / elbow therapy thingy.
5. No Funny business. This is a fundraiser and needs to be family friendly.

If you read this, please share with your friends. We had a good # of participants last year, and this event is totally dependant on you all actually making some desserts.

Thanks all,
Matt Turner

Rocktoberfest is the annual Red River Gorge (Kentucky) fundraiser that is thrown to help us continue to purchase and mantain one of the nation's largest climber owned nature preserves.

If you didn't go to the above link, here's a quick summary. Music and free stuff, vendors and movies on Friday night. The dinner and brownines on Sat. night, with crate stacking contest, and more chances at free stuff and an excellent band playing that night. Climbing comps to enter during the day hours. Sunday cheap priced clinics taught by world renown climbers, and a free pancake breakfast. Camping for the 2 nites is included in the admission fees. Be there ! Woodchuck ATC

after the hard stuff, into cruiser hands.
just a tip... don't do the joust/gladiator foam things with your girlfriend/wife... if you do definitely don't cheat (wait until the count of 3 to start) and definitely don't hit her in the face after you agree on no head shots beforehand. Just some friendly advice. NickinCO

Mt. Rainier summit.
I'm so sad I won't be able to come this year and defend my title from last year (okay, well, it was really my wife's title, but you know). Hope it's a big success again! JulianB

Just trying to help out.. I think she didn't talk to me for the remainder of that trip, although she did still offer a belay so maybe it wasn't so bad? NickinCO

Bump to ask everyone to spread the word about the bownie bake-off.

Aside from having a cool grand-prize, it's a small way we can all give back to the community and continue to make Rocktoberfest the best damned climbing event around.

and I think even if your brownie efforts are awful and you substitute cookies, they will be gladly accepted in their dessert department for the dinner that night. Woodchuck ATC
