Sorry to say I have a wedding to go to on sat. I am very interested in being part and will for sure be at the next one. Mark, can you pitch the Blueberry pancake Idea? I will be at rumney sunday I hope to bump into you guys. I will for sure pass the word for sat.
Mike

It won't take much pitching for people to go for Blueberry pancakes! Will do. I'll let you know what goes on. We will probably have another one soon once we get reorganized and have more information.

Thanks Mark for the call,  I'll definitely be there. 
Just a quick response to handjammers comments on the parking situation at Rumney;  How many climbers can the place handle, enough is enough.  The last thing we need is to add more parking so that even more pressure will be put on the area.  If the parking lot is full, there's plenty of other great climbing areas in the state.
See you Saturday

Thanks for getting that meeting together.  It was great to meet all you guys.  I'm willing to help out with whatever needs getting done.  keep us all up to date with the whats going on with the forest service. 
Also I agree that parking lot expansion would not be a good idea, its great that so many people are getting outside but there should be a line drawn and enforced at some point.  Its great to meet so many new people, but at some point the crowds begin to detract from the atmosphere and put too much pressure on the land.  I do include myself as part of the weekend crowding, but I would also be willing to go somewhere else if the parking was full.  How many people is too many?  Who decides this?  Is this really a problem?  Has it gooten worse over the last several years?  Maybe the Forest Service could record the number of weekend cars and do a study?
Whatever the answers, it sgood to know that there are people out there that care enough about the area to at least think/talk about these things.

By the way, how great is the calm post!  I love that we have a local place to hang/eat/meet and suggest that we support them as best we can.

I agree with Mike.  It was great to meet all of you.  Thanks go out to the Clam Post Cafe for hosting the meeting.

Since the meeting, I also agree on not trying to expand the parking.  As it now stands, it would be very hard to "police" the parking problem, but it could be done.  It would seem that the NF should take the lead.  I mentioned at the meeting that the NF service has been placing free passes on vehicles that do not display a day pass or parking permit from WMNF.  To me, this is not a good idea ... don't pay and get a free ticket for another day?  Does anyone know the capacity of the two parking lots?

I am also excited to start help around the crag ... doing whatever needs to be done.

I am also sorry that I missed the meeting, but I am interested in becoming an RCA member.  I was speaking with Mark this weekend about the importance of joining the RCA and I would like to spread the word, but could someone post a step by step process for joining?  Who do we contact and all.  Thanks guys!

I have been advised that the steps are as follows:

1.  Open can of cheap beer, preferably warm and skunky.
2.  Put on a pair of multi-colored spandex pants, bonus points if flourescent.
3.  Shave all but three chest hairs.
4.  Remove check book from mom's purse.
5.  Write check payable to Rumney Climbers Association for $10
6.  Place check in an envelope, lick and seal envelope.
7.  Address envelope to PO Box 375  Plymouth NH 03264
8.  Place stamp (see your local galaxy post office for current rates) on envelope.
9.  Place envelope in mailbox.
10.  Wait
11.  Drink more beer and dance around an open flame.
12.  Wait some more.
13.  Still waiting...
14.  Take off moldy spandex pants.
15.  Membership card arrives.
16.  Place membership card on shirt.  For bonus points pin your membership card directly to your chest.
17.  Arrive at Rumney and flash 5.4 like no one's business!

If you follow no other steps besides 5-9 you should be ok.  But I would highly encourage you to try step #3, ladies dig an almost clean shaven chest.

Cheers!
