It's all about getting better!

Hi guys,

So our database wizard Chris "the formula" Carver has put together a totally different set of results for us all to ponder. We have all seen the big guns at the top of the leader board after each event but what actually counts is who got better and improved throughout the series right? Continually improving is way harder then just being good or staying the same all series we think so we put together "Overall most improved 2013/14 results" for a bit of fun.

We based the most improved on the following criteria;

1. Requires minimum 4 events to qualify
2. Rewards positive increases from event to event
3. Rewards steady, progressive improvements rather than sudden jumps
4. It is a competition so first score and overall average still count!
5. There's a small bonus for the hardcore fans that attended all five events

Certainly some different names at the top of these results - click here. http://www.scribd.com/doc/209380904/Blokfest-Overall-most-IMPROVED

Cheers
Team Blokfest

p.s Big thanks to Chris Carver for putting this all together

Not necessarily about how big the number is on the scorecard!

In other big news we will be publishing the most important results very soon.... The most IMPROVED climbers of the season. Showing its not all about how strong you are but if you have got "better" and we all know that's what really counts :-)

Watch this space.

Castle event results

Hi all,

So the final event of the 2013-14 season is done and dusted. Click the link below to see how you got on.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/207630755/Castle-Full-Results

The rankings are based on your Castle score and the overall rank is based on best of 4 scores. If you did not make it to the Castle event you will still be on the list but at the bottom. Remember to scroll on the way down to find yourself as there are 20 odd pages.

Coming up we will also be publishing the "most improved" overall rankings so we could be seeing some different people ranking highly on that one. Also Ben Grubb, Kamil, Neil Hart and the crew will be releasing a highlights video soon hopefully along with more excellent pics from Karolis.

Now now all that leaves us to say is MASSIVE MASSIVE thanks to everyone who got involved, the sponsors and volunteers who help make Blokfest possible. Phew!

Cheers,
Team Blokfest

Castle Blokfest is coming

So somehow we are approaching the final event of this season. It's safe to say it's been epic so far but have we saved the best untill last? Only time will tell but preparations are well under way and we are planning on going out with a bang. A few things to look forward to at the Castle are;

- 2 new epic bouldering areas
- More individual blocs for less congestion 
- 2 dj set ups with 4 DJs so far
- epic level of prizes and give aways 
- finals Bar
- huge talent in the finals with many of the British bouldering team attending
- 5 route setters 
- CAC stall, Evolv shoes demo and DMM/ MARMOT on site
- after finals celebration drinks and snacks in the Brownswood pub across the road

If you haven't attended a Blokfest yet this series and keen for the Castle event you can register online here  http://www.blokfest.com/p/entries.html or simply turn up on the day (online reg is easier). Remember it's £15 or £10 for under 18's which includes the designer Blokfest t-shirt or vest and there is always climbs set for everyone starting at VO-.

To remind you how last years event went you can check out this high lights video. http://vimeo.com/55946935

Blokfest 4 - get amongst it!

Hi all,

Preparations are well under way for  Blokfest #4 at Nottingham and the day is set to be the biggest and best event of the season so far. If you have never been to a Blokfest before be sure to stick your name down on the registration page to make life easier and quicker on the day and get ready for a fun and exciting event that is suitable for everyone on Sunday. 

If your not 100% if you can make it for some bizzare reason - no drama as you can always just turn up on the day (remember everyone who enters Blokfest gets a FREE smart t-shirt or vest). Under 16s from 10:30am and seniors from 1pm with the ever spectacular finals at 6pm. With plenty of big names already entered the showcase finals is definitely not to be missed. 

The Depot crew have been awesome and arranged additional free parking in Staples which they will attend on the day from 9am and as always please remember cash for your entree on the day. 

We have also arranged a couple of extra crazy challenges on the day to try out along side the 25 bloc tour plus we have- DMM, Marmot, Scarpa, Grivel, BootBananas, Beastmaker, Holdz, Volx and Bonobo Beads Hand made jewelry amongst others on hand to add to the festival atmosphere. 

OH YEAH and how could we forgot a Huge sound system and x2 psyched DJ's!
