Occupation Detail
I was the Manager of the City's Procurement and Contracts Department. This involved all the acquisition of supplies, equipment, contracts, and bids for construction projects for all City departments as well as all departments of Colorado Springs Utilities. I was familiar with all department heads and managers. I was especially fond of the staff and management of the Pikes Peak Highway. The equipment and unique job tasks associated with this enterprise were of tremendous interest to me. 
Climbing Experience Detail


Memories From First Climb
My first climb was a guest in 1991. I got a call on December 29th that one of the guests had become ill and I was next in line. So not much prep time. I was so excited to be part of this legendary group. There was too much ice on Barr Trail first morning so we climbed Cog Railway tracks to Mountain View and then crossed over to Barr Trail. 

Second day was icy and cold, but we made it to summit about 3:00 PM.  I stayed close to Ken Geddes both days and he mentored me through my first experience as a guest climber.

Memories From First Member Year

I was so excited to be leading the Club on this climb. Weather first day was so warm that many of us were in shorts to Barr Camp. 

Second day was not bad weather and not much ice on the trail. I was moving too fast as the lead climber so they had to put Ed Kirches in behind me to slow down my pace. I was so proud that we all finished together in mid afternoon. 

It was a thrilling experience to be now member and I thank all the Club members for making me feel welcome.
