The 3rd edition of the DB9 competition took place on Friday 16 May. Once again it was a nice evening with challenging boulders, thanks to the volumes borrowed from the Klimmuur. DJ I.VO.D, together with DJ JFM, took care of the music. With over 70 contestors we may call this event successfull. It was a first acquaintance with a competition for quite some boulderers, reason for them not to hand in the score card due to only topping 1 boulder. Next time, please do hand in your card as you might not have done so bad as you thought plus it’s the best way to find out who to watch next time in order to learn how to top that boulder as well. Don van Laere won the men comp, Tiba Vroom won the ladies comp. Both Don and Tiba are part of the RTC region Zuid-West and train with our head route setter Michiel Nieuwenhuijzen. This is the full list of results:

After the Dutch Championships Bouldering we’ll set a date for September for the last DB9 in this series.
Delfts Bleau is closed on Thursday 29 May, Ascension Day, and Monday 9 June, Whit Monday. This is also the case on Friday 13 June due to the routesetting and preparations for the Dutch Championships Bouldering.
Speaking of…the Lotto Dutch Championships! Saturday 14 June is the date for the Dutch top boulderers to battle for the National title. All information – available in Dutch only – is to be found on the special website http://www.nkboulder.nl. Booking your ticket in advance means having a chance on winning nice prices in our lottery.
All boulders in the competition wall will be taken out on Tuesday 10 June to make room for the competition boulders. To prevent sneak previews of the competition boulders the wall will be covered up with curtains. As there are several odd jobs to be done we’re looking for handymens willing to give a helping hand on working days between 2 and 14 June. Do you have some spare time and would you like to help making this event a hugh success? If so, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or ask for Sander at our bar.
See you soon!
