Baggers Banquet 2011
The winners of the 2011 Club Fat Ass - Bagger Challenge. Bill Mauer (Overall Champion with the most Peaks - 50), myself (Most Peaks Climbed for the females - 33) and Ken Legge received the Twisted Quaich (for contributing to new route finding this year).
David and Julia hosted the party again this year and did a superb job of making it a great evening. David with the tray of Quaichs.
The cake - a nice steep Peak!
A good time was had by all! Neil and I stayed the night at the Georgia Hotel in Vancouver to celebrate the end of the bagging season. The last few months when we have been home, Saturdays and Sundays have been spent climbing mountains. It was a very different Saturday today. We slept in (instead of getting up at 5am), we went out for breakfast (instead of eating toast in the car), we walked Robson Street(crowded!) and we had our hair cut (we never do this on a Saturday). We had a nice dinner at home and watched the hockey game on TV. I know that it must sound like a very normal way to spend a Saturday but when we have been leaving early and returning home very late the last few weeks - it felt strange. Am I missing the bagging already? - I think so! Time now to build up the long runs over the winter months.
Congratulations to all the Baggers out there!
