For a hundred twenty five bucks a head, you can meet the stars of the reality show.

I'm going to attend for two reasons;

1) As a vet I strongly support their mission & cause, despite their overwhelming confidence in the face of local advice

2) I'd like to hear how they re-tell what happened to a captive audience. I'm cautiously optimistic they will be accurate.

I hope for your sake your right, the pre game show was pretty dramatic.

FYI If you live in the area and can pick up Friday's Conway Daily Sun, there is a letter to the editor from Joe Lentiini regarding this episode & the rescue. He basically is saying that he is "insulted" by the MRS rescue team being referred to as someone who "delivered the equipment they needed to descend". The letter is not yet on the Sun's web site, tho it should be soon. If you can get a copy, it's worth reading...

This letter to the editor was posted in the Conway Daily Sun last week regarding the Ascents Of Honor incident in Huntington Ravine. I don't know why this wasn't posted on the Conway Sun web site, but here it is:

This letter to the editor was posted in the Conway Daily Sun last week regarding the Ascents Of Honor incident in Huntington Ravine. I don't know why this wasn't posted on the Conway Sun web site, but here it is:

The letter and the text:

Quote
The first Snow Ranger and HMC caretaker parked the snowmobile near the first aid cache at the base of Huntington. At 6:20pm, approximately 200 yards uphill from the cache, they encountered the injured climbers slowly working their way down the trail. They briefly questioned the group about what had happened and if they had any information about the rest of the team. Knowing there were more rescuers who would be arriving soon, they did not want first aid at this time. At the request of the lead guide, the hasty team continued up into Huntington where they could see headlamps slowly descending the gully. They climbed up the fan, careful to avoid the avalanche runout path from Odell, Pinnacle, or Central Gully, until they were able to make contact with the remaining climbers and determined that they were doing OK.

Hey Al,
Do you have the article/letter that Joe specifically refers to and was responding to?
I haven't been able to find it online.

No, Al he’s referring to the press release last Sunday in the Conway Daily Sun advertising the fundraiser for MWOBS via Wounded Warriors where the unknown author stated “MRS delivered the gear we needed to descend”. That is what invoked Joe’s response, rightfully so IMO. I’m looking forward to attending the event with an open mind to see how they re-tell the story...

Yeah, the one Joe refers to directly, Feb. 27 on page 9. Would love to see the wording.

I think if you know somebody who subscribes to the electronic version they can pull that issue out of the archives.
