Ice Fest Anyone?

Since the conditions for the ice opener were less than dismal, would anyone be interested in having an ice fest day in late January/early February? There was great deal of turn out and I thought it might be good to try another day. It seems our community of southern Alberta climbers is increasing and it would be good to try and connect with others that we don't know. Please post any comments or interest to give an idea of whether to pursue this or not.

On a side note, Dave Fuller, Blair Piggot, and I went out to bridalveil on Jan 3. Things have definitely improved; however, be aware that there are hollow pockets around 5-6 cms deep that proved to be a little frustrating with an ice screw that would not come out. Blair and I had the pleasure of watching Dave crank through a tough lead on pearl necklace.

A few of us from the flathead would like to come up if you do another ice middler.

I'll donate some books as prizes. I don't know if I'll be up to hauling the BBQ up though! I think it would be great if someone wants to set a date and get some information out.
