GORDON FAMILY FUNDRAISER BUMP
BIG PARTY AT THE GORDON RANCH APRIL 21/ 2012
Once again, we are trying to raise some money to fix the roof at THE RANCH.
EVERYONE IS INVITED! Including Stonemasters, Uplanders, wanna-bes, Sheep Buggerers, those mysterious folk from San Diego, RADs, Banditos, Valley boys, Euros, Asians, Latinos, Mazamas, Vulgarians, Buff Alpine clubbers, Sierra Clubbers, American Alpine Clubbers and even Canadians and Newfoundlanders, not to mention people from Florida.
In the continuing philanthropic tradition we will be having a giant party at The Gordon residence on April 21, 2012. This year the goal will be to do major repairs on the roof of the main house at The Gordon Ranch. The brutal Joshua Tree weather and the many visitors have taken a toll on the house. They have one messed up roof with multiple leaks. The roofing crew of motivated locals is already set. We just need money for roofing materials the party and more.
Most of us know Todd Gordon, AKA "The Mayor of Josh," as one of the most giving humans in the So. Cal climbing community for the last 30 or so years. Chances are you have stayed at one of Todd's houses more than once while visiting Joshua Tree for it's world famous climbing....or you've climbed one of Todd's many, many classic and not so classic routes.... or maybe he even taught you to climb. I myself have been his guest more times than I can remember. We've showered, pooped, watched TV, camped, used the kitchen etc. there while visiting Todd, his family and our beloved Monument (JTNP).
This party is going to have a rocking band called "Warsaw." We are also honored to have world traveler Tony Yeary giving a slideshow with pics from the awesome mountains of Peru to our own awesome Sierra Nevada.
We are looking for volunteers to help with food, setup and cleanup.
