Thanks to those of you who replied to the survey. 75 responses were received with 46 people completing the survey.
Here is the link to the Straw Poll results. What this indicates, is that currently, the majority of respondents would like a “Fun” competition in 2012, rather than a “Formal” competition in 2012. There are a number of climbers, as indicated in the poll, who would prefer a more “Formal” competition.
“Formal” means that the competition would be run as an accredited Western Australian State Championship with competitors earning points towards the National Championship. For those of you who would like to understand more about the “Formal” competition structure & requirements, Anthony Brandis, (CAWA Committee –Events & Competitions), will be posting a Blog which will summarise the entry requirements and rules of the competition.
This year, CAWA will provide its members and the greater rock climbing community across Western Australia with a series of Rock Climbing Competitions, co-hosted by Perth indoor rock climbing centres. They will be run as a “Fun” set of comps to both introduce new climbers to competition level climbing and to encourage experienced climbers to compete to demonstrate their skills. Details of these competitions scheduled to run from June 2012 through to Sept 2012 are being prepared at the moment.
CAWA strives to accommodate the aspirations of its members and as such is looking at holding the WA State Sport Climbing Championship. This competition will be a “Formal” Competition and is slated for 2013. Keep an eye on the CAWA blog for further information as it is due to be announced later this year.
Keep watch on the CAWA Web for more details that will follow in the near future.
