Rory Lowther - lost gear

The 'Rory" was once again a wonderful event. Unfortunately, I came home less two ropes. Did anyone find 2 ropes in MadRock bags?

Yes, I found your rope/s, were they in a Mad Rock bag. I found a black Mad Rock bag, did not open so not sure how many ropes were inside. I found it at Spearhead Boulder, on Saturday, after the Rory main event, so after 3pm. We were setting up for the speed climbing and no one besides the Natal and Gauteng Search and Rescue were in the area.
During the tug of war and announcement was made about the rope, and a second announcement was made during the the prize giving.
I left the rope with Eric and Debbie, at the Lost and Found outside the farm house.
I will contact them to find out where your rope is.
I just want to clarify, did you lose two ropes in two separate Mad Rock rope bags, or two ropes within the one Mad Rock rope bag.
Please call me or sms me.

Good Q Justin!

I was wondering the same. This is the first news from the Rory, lost ropes. No official news or photos.
I have two good bouldering friends who claim to have come second overall without climbing anything but a bunch of boulders! I can't confirm this and feel I shouln't trust a couple of sneaky rum drinking boulderers without news that the Rory even happened :pirat:
