Psychedelia is coming!!!


Paul Robinson on his way to winning last year's Psychedelia


We’ve spent all week planning and prepping some sweet special features for this year’s Psychedelia!  You thought the pvc pipes from last year were cool?  Well, they were, but this year we’ve got some even more amazing ideas in store.


Some of last year's sweet decorations

We had to take some holds and volumes off the wall to get ’em ready, so a few problems are gone and we put up a few more in their place.  On Tuesday night at 9 we will strip the Dojo, then the Beach, and we will set those on Wednesday, but the rest of the gym will be open.  At 9pm on Wednesday we will begin stripping the rest of the gym, and on Thursday we’ll be closed so we can set set set.  Friday we will also be closed so the decorating team can make the gym look insane for the comp on Saturday.

Comp Schedule for Psychedelia on Saturday, October 23rd:

Youth Registration – 12-1

Youth Climbing – 1-4

Youth Food, Raffle, Costume Contest & Awards – 3-4:45ish

Adult Registration – 5-6

Adult Climbing & Costume Contest – 6-9

Wahoo’s served & Beer tapped – 7:30

Costume Contest & Fire Dancing – 9:15

Finals – 9:45

Raffle – 10:15 or so til we’ve given away all the sweet gear we have!

Wanna help us decorate? Come in to the Spot anytime between now and Tuesday and paint some holds at our hold painting station.  A light coat works best, and feel free to paint a few holds with the same theme or design.  Try not to paint the usable surface (i.e. the part your fingers and/or thumb would grab if you were climbing on the hold) so the hold is still fun to grab at the comp.  Too much paint makes slimy holds!  Just enough paint makes the gym look incredible!  We also have some tape art volunteer shifts open on Friday, October 22nd.  If you are interested please sign up at the front desk or email events@thespotgym.com.

Don’t forget to get your blacklight-friendly costume together for the costume contest!  We’ve seen some great costumes in the past, including two giant highlighters, an evil tooth fairy, Beaker Bender from Futurama, an African neck-stretcher, and a giant chicken!  Most whites as well as anything that says “florescent” in it will glow really well.  If you’re not sure, feel free to come by the Spot and test out the pieces of your costume in our blacklight box.

We are psyched!  Remember, Spot members can climb at the BRC on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday when we’re closed for the comp.  On Friday, Oct 22, the BRC is having a gear swap from 4:30 to 6:30.  If you have stuff to sell or need gear, check it out.  In the past lots of pro climbers have sold off great gear for really low prices.
