October 31-Nov 2nd Halloween at Ganhyeon

2008 is the year of the cimb-fest in my books (even though, or maybe bevause I missed the M&G ), and so here's the next major event on the KOTR "higher than you think" calender of fun.
We've tried this before, but this year halloween is actually a Friday and so fits well. Grab your costume ("no costume, no climbing" as stated in the model of the provisional draught constitution on KOTR's as yet unpublished lexa non scripta edition). Tent city will function as the door-to-door "trick or treat street" and we will also be doing the "every individual bring a single 5,000won or less mystery gift swap thing". Know what I'm saying?
So don't despair if you missed the M&G , rather gear up, dress up and get yourself over to "the G" for a weekend of spooky kooky fun and frights.
Saturday night feasting a distinct possibility (I'm thinking communal punch and cake at the least). Jack-o-lanterns galore (if pumpkins are hard to come by, use watermelons!) welcome.
For directions on getting to Ganhyeon (Kanhyun/간현 etc) see the link:
http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb...d=22&sort=name
Trains from Seoul's Cheongyangni Station (청양리역) run straight to Ganhyeon village, a mere 20min walk from the crag.
By all means bring a Korean or non-climbing friend and spread the word.

I was planning on throwing a Halloween party at my apt anyways, so now I can just help throw it 20 minutes away! Less clean up that way!

Or, practice some true Irish traditions and carve radishes.

Looks like this is my last weekend in Korea (for awhile, at least) so it'd be really great if everyone can head on up!!

We'll be in Friday. Costumes could be worn both nights, why not? Remember everyone should also bring 1 present (5,000won or under) to give as a mystery exchange thing...and maybe we can co-ordinate a few Min-bak-ing groups (probably us this time), and dinner plans. Maybe instead of the usual post climbing cook-feast we could book a local restaurant out and be uptown snobbies? Just an idea. Campfire and drinks thereat definitely needed.
