Things coming up

Claire just got back from Glasgow airport, picking up a large posse of American slackliners, arriving for the UK Slacklining masters in Fort William this Saturday. Claire is organising the event. It's looking pretty cool right now. Apart from the masterclasses and watching the pros (coming from as far off as the US and Poland!) in action doing flips etc on the line, there should be a good amateur comp too. If you are coming you should enter the amateur comp. There is a quite a good chance of winning a few hundred quid!! Tim Emmett will be on MC and a general party atmoshpere. See you there maybe...
After the slacklining comp I'm doing a spot of MCing myself at the modern face of Everest night in the Nevis Centre. It should be a very thought provoking evening - up for discussion is the ethics of life and death of mountaineers on Everest. Before that I'm in Dunfermline giving a talk on Thursday evening about trad and risk.
Quite a week...
Next on the events agenda for climbers after the Fort William festival is SHAFF in Sheffield. This is a pretty huge event now with a quite a list of impressive film premieres I wish I could be there to see. I have some climbing plans though...
