Im going to be the stick in the mud here and ask if there is anyone else who thinks the costs of these comps is getting a bit expensive. We did the rockrally and that was not cheap and did some basic sums for this comp.

For two of us to come down entry , fuel , toll gates and basic running costs it about R 1000.00 to R 1500.00 ( not including food ) for a days climbing!

Anyone have any coment or is it just me who thinks its getting more expensive each year.

Prizes currently valued at over R50 000-00 includes Cash prizes for the winning teams, Winter & Summer Ski Packages, Bouldering Pad, Gear and Camping equipment and vouchers. T-shirts, Freebies and Free Finger Tape for each challenger. 5 meals inclusive of a Spit Braai with Pudding for R150.00. Good vibe and a fun weekend. Would that not warrant getting a couple of buds together to share travelling costs..or would you rather stay in the mud ?? Believe it or not it takes time, money, patience and passion to organise a competition.

I have been involved in cometitive sport on both racing and admin in SA and Europe for the past 20years so understand the lagistics. It was just a question I had as climbing is a low cost sport and thus we have such a great bunch of climbings out there from the ones who can afford it to the students.

Your piont taken , Thanks ( will clean the mud of my stick )

We have in the past been able to sponsor a couple of students with donations received, they would however have to apply for sponsorship. (On the condition that the donation is forthcoming again)
Didn't mean for the 'mud' comment to be contentious, just didn't want to see you stuck there. Hope to see you at RLMC 2008.

My 2c worth...

I've been to the RLMC for the last 3 Years and in my humble opinion it has to be one of the best run comps in the country. Yes it might cost a tad more but you get so much more for your money. Also keep in mind that it is not a money making venture. The aim is to increase safety awareness and help fund SA mountain rescue.
