Climbing meeting planned

Mountain climbers — from novice to expert — are raising funds for the American Lung Association of Oregon's "Reach the Summit 2008" series of climbs this summer.

A free informational meeting on the multi-state event is scheduled for 6 tonight at McKenzie Outfitters in Medford, 1340 Biddle Road. The meeting is unaffected by McKenzie Outfitters' pending closure in Medford.

Representatives from the ALA of Oregon, Timberline Mountain Guides Inc. and past participants will discuss their experiences, share footage from the 2007 climbs and present details of this year's planned climbs.

For more information, call Jennifer Baldwin with ALA of Oregon at 503-718-6151 or go online to www.reachthesummit.us. Climber registration is $150 and is nonrefundable.
