Hey guys

You might have noticed the little news flash on ClimbZA stating that Arjan is going to be competing in Vienna this weekend at the IFSC bouldering world cup. You can watch this event live on IFSC TV.
It would be great if we could get together as a community and support Arjan while he represents SA internationally. Are there people out there who have fast internet connections and would be willing to host people to watch this event and get the hype going? It would be awesome if there were a number of spots around the country that could offer this.
It's time that we get together as a community and proudly support our climbers. :P

Anybody in JHB north with a good internet connection and will not mind some visitors this Sat night. Myne at home is slow. I have no prob brining the drinks. The finals start at 8 pm. The qualifiers are on this Friday 8 am to 2:30 pm, semi from sat 12:30 pm and finals from Sat 8:00 pm. This is all Austria time which as far as I know is the same as SA, as they currently have daylight saving. For details on the comp, check out: http://www.ifsc-climbing.org/2011/11_WC_WI.pdf.

Arjan knocked out in the closing seconds - unlucky
He lost on number of attempts! and the slot just below him was occupied by the current No. 1 Kilian Fischhubber.

Great show and always good to see the South African flag at international events!

Hi

Just spoke to Arjan, he is chilled. We indeed have a lot to learn, but only up from here.

Much respect to Arjan!

@Fool: :lol: Classic bro! That's gonna become my new life motto - my mantra! I'll have to start wearing those old-school, multi-coloured, "Top-Sport" cycling shades, get a "cool" haircut and tear all the sleeves off my t-shirts. Life is all about who you have below you 8) Yeah!
