CWIF: 1 Day to go
The day before The CWIF and all is quiet.....well actually no, its not, it's far from it.
The setters are currently testing their 30 blocs for the qualifiers, we've got WADs arriving throughout the morning (some Finnish bloke called Nalle has just rocked up), and we're finalizing the list for the qualifiers.
The setters testing their creations this morning
For anybody coming today to climb tonight, please note that you cannot climb on the Yellow holds. We will completely embarrass you if you are found to be climbing on them tonight.
We will accept online registrations till 5pm and then after that it will be registration only on the day. We will not accept any phone calls or emails after 5pm today. The morning session is now completely full so if you are coming tomorrow to register / climb in the qualifiers you will be in the pm session.
Updated CWIF entry list as of 3pm Friday>>
For those who are competing the qualifying times are as follows:
am morning session: 09:00 - 12:30
pm afternoon session: 14:30 - 18:00
We will open our doors at 08:00 for those looking to register, warm-up and generally set themselves for the morning qualifying session.
Semi-Finals: Midday - 14:15
You will be able to watch the Semi's and Finals via webcast on Sunday on 247.tv>>
We will open as normal at 10am on the Sunday and the main circuit wall will be open to climbing as normal. Please note parts of the wall nearest the Berghaus Competition Wall will be closed allday as they will be used for seating for the Semi's and Finals.
We will have our famous FREE BBQ starting around 3.30pm and there will be a raffle going on throughout the weekend with prizes from Scarpa, Berghaus, Holdz and ShAFF all up for grabs.
Every CWIF we raise money for chaaarrrrity. Well this year we are raising cash either for Andy Earl (who suffered a stroke in November) or for a charity of his choice.
So how can you donate:
- Simply chuck money in the bucket on reception.
- By paying the ‘voluntary’ Team Registration fee of £10
- By buying a raffle ticket.
Graeme has promised to wear a black & white rag Newcastle football shirt all day as long as the bucket keeps filling up.
And Bri has pledged to become more and more Irish throughout the day as long as the money keeps coming in. So expect an un-intelligible, Guinness swilling leprechaun to be around the place, and that’s before he starts regressing...
Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is also on this weekend and we've worked together so that all the best climbing films are on AFTER the climbing has finished at The CWIF. You see the whole list of films and times on the ShAFF website
