Thanks Charlie, I thought there might be some issue using the RRGCC logo. Still happy to donate though.

and also, why would you want to promote your mediocrity with a 5.11 sticker.

the sticker should just say "RED"

for those of us who are fans of the color, as well as the place.

by all means - if someone wants to print 5.11 stickers (w/o the rrgcc.org or other logo/trademark-ish things) and thinks they will sell - feel free to do so. just because some of the people that post on here won't buy them doesn't mean there's no market at all. you can either sell them yourself and donate the proceeds to the RRGCC or give them to the RRGCC and we'll sell them at events along with other donated items.

perhaps a better idea would be to produce one that says RRG in big letters and Red River Gorge underneath in small letters. i think this may be better bec
1. it avoids the problems of using RRGCC logo material - which must be approved by the board
2. it appeals to a wider audience of climbers, hikers, rappellers, ATV users etc. so hopefully will be even easier to sell.

or a PMRP sticker could be cool too w/the payoff date underneath.

but regardless of what goes on the sticker(s) - this is a great idea and i'm glad that people are willing to step up and implement it!

Or should it say The Gorge?

PMRP is an awesome choice...looks close to RMNP, which is where all the REAL climbers hang out.

Have you ever run a marathon? That shit hurts for days. You deserve a crappy little sticker. When you can finish ahead whoever displays that sticker, then you can quibble about time. Until then you need to find something else to whine about.

Bingo. I also won't let some elitist prick diminish my accomplishments for me, even if he/she is faster/stronger/whatever in any given activity.

tradwanker and powen..you two take this all too seriously. I, like you two, have run marathons....9 to be exact. however, unlike you, I don't consider my accomplishments anything to write home about.

running a marathon, is really not that big of a deal. just alot of persistence and many summer miles. now, finishing in the top of your age group, qualifying for boston, running sub 3 hours, these are definers....I have done none of those, but I would never go around like completing a marathon is some big deal.

shoot, have you seen some of the folks who complete these marathons? you'd think they couldn't get off the couch, but there they are, finishing.

it doesn't make any one an elitist, just a realist.

completing a marthon is like climbing 5.12...attainable for anyone who really tries.

Piggie, I think you misunderstood my point. I don't have any stickers or do I puff about anything I do. (If you have ever seen my gumby-ass climb, you would understand why!) I was just saying if you have never done something, don't judge someone who has.

With that being said, I was amazed at some of the people in the mix.

oh, don't get me wrong. I love the stickers. I asked my wife to let me have Obama, Mccain, and Ron Paul yard signs during the election.

the majority of us aren't athletes. never will be. the majority of climbers either sucked at competitive sports, and won't admit it, or they were social outcasts in high school, and are looking to redeem themselves now. they have no bragging room over runners, the quintessential loners.
