Tonight, Lonewacko has a choice between three fine and exciting events:
At 7pm, there's the monthly Los Angeles Java Users' Group meeting in Pasadena.
At the same time and in the same city, the Outland Mountain Shop is presenting a slideshow called "Canyoneeing around the World," which supposedly will be a "comprehensive and instructional slide show reviewing techniques for canyoneering. Utah, Hawaii, and New Zealand will be the area of discovery. Including a first descent. Topics will include: Gear, anchors and protection, objective hazards, weather, ratings, ethics, water flow techniques vs. dry canyons."
I've never tried canyoneering, mainly because as with other things I have trouble finding cohorts. But, I have rappelled a couple times, and after viewing this unrelated site, I'm very interested.
However, at 6:30 PM, one of the Atwater organizations is presenting a speech with LAPD Chief Bratton at Chevy Chase Park (4165 Chevy Chase Dr. LA 90039 between the L.A. River and Brand). I might go despite not being an Atwaterian.
