The November Winner Is…. :)


Thank you so much to everyone who has helped with this fundraiser so far, to support Layton Kor with his medical expenses.

We are rolling now with the monthly gear giveaways, which will happen on the first of every month, as long as we have all this gear to give away!

Today I printed out all the names of everyone who has donated to help Layton, with each name printed out once for each $25 donation (so some folks had several shots at it, because they donated more). Some of you requested to be in the guide day drawing (and you still are), others just wanted to be in the gear drawing, and you all went into the hat for this one.

I cut all the names up into strips. There were several pages, so it was a lot of snipping!

Everyone was put into my favorite hat that I wear all the time (here I’m wearing it on the Eiger mushroom in Switzerland about 2 weeks ago).

I tossed them all around in there:

and pulled out Harry Marinakis!

Congratulations Harry!  You have won a lot of awesome gear!

And congratulations to everyone for helping Layton Kor, a revered and cherished member of our community.

The guide day giveaways are still going on, and everyone who donates in the month of November has a chance to win the great prize package for December, so you can win a pile of gear just like Harry!

MSR Skinny Too tent
Metolius six-pack of FS mini carabiners
Mammut 5-pack of shoulder length dyneema slings
Metolius Comp chalkbag and Element Key Lock Carabiner
4 boxes any Clif product
1 prAna outfit (top and bottom, your choice)
1 pair Five Ten shoes (your choice)
prAna yoga mat
Sender Films DVD (your choice)
3-pack Stainless Steel coffee tumblers

Thanks also to all these great sponsors who have so generously donated this gear to make these giveaways possible.

And a word from Harry:

“Thanks very much for the November Gear Giveaway prizes! Thank you, Clif, Five Ten, Mammut, MSR, prAna and Sender Films.

The name Layton Kor has been known to me since I started climbing in 1974. How many of us started big wall climbing on the Kor Roof on Washington Column?

Climbing is a brotherhood. We’ve got to stick together. It’s time to give back to those who have led the way before us, and made all this possible.

Get well Layton.
