I don't know how reliable the news is, but it sounds like the Guelph Grotto may be opening a climbing gym near Highbury and Oxford. Apparently they have secured a location and will begin construction within a month or two. It would be pretty unusual for it to be purpose-built for a climbing gym, so I'm guessing they're leasing space somewhere in the vicinity. In any case, that just placed London on my list of places I could feasibly live! (although it is a bit far from the escarpment)

neat. I used to rock climb back in my CEGEP days (1988-1990).

Wait. Highbury and Oxford? I wonder if they're moving into Oxbury Mall? Not many other choices on that corner...

Here's the source: http://ontarioclimbing.com/forum/index.php?topic=1722.0

Apparently it's in the general vicinity. I don't know what that means though.

The London Lightning are one win away from taking the first NBL title.

Has anyone been to the games? I've been to two and they're very entertaining. Although it's odd to see the JLC with such a small crowd... the upper level is closed and the first floor is only about half-full. Big contrast compared to a Knights game.

Also I found out that I enjoy watching basketball live more than hockey. I miss the announcers for hockey games but I don't seem to for basketball... plus you're close to the court and there's good entertainment during play stoppages.

London could take the title tomorrow in Halifax. They won the first two games in a best of 5 series. In addition London's coach hasn't lost two games in a row since he started coaching 6 years ago. Will this jinx him?

Awesome stuff for the London Lightning, I honestly didnt give the league a hope in hell but the long NBA lockout seems to have helped. Hopefully its the first of many season.

JLC is an awesome venue, modern building, great location. I really think that if they had upped to capacity to 15-16k when they were building it, they would be a very attractive location of an NHL team!

Well the London Lightning lost both games in Halifax which means the final game will be this Sunday at 2 at the JLC.

Also at 2 on Sunday is Barcraft at the Ceeps. Not sure which one I will go to but I will probably watch the Lightning game and then head over to the Ceeps.

For those who don't know what Barcraft is, it's like watching a sporting game at a bar except it's Starcraft. The MLG (Major League Gaming) final is on Sunday, and the London, Western and Fanshawe Starcraft community are gathering at the Ceeps to watch a live stream of it.

There have been a bunch of Barcrafts, and the Ceeps is happy to host them. In November, over 200 people packed the bar. The London Free Press did a story on it.

If you haven't been to one, or don't know anything about Starcraft, you'll still have a great time! Many of my friends who know nothing have stopped by and they had a blast!

Grats Lightning on winning the NBL title! The JLC was nuts... had to wait 30+ mins to get a ticket... place was packed!

Grats Marineking on winning the MLG title! The Barcraft scene in London is pretty solid now... probably better than K/W's.

OHL Champs!

Congratulations London Knights on winning the OHL Championship!!!

This is London's Joe Carter moment. Game 7, 1 second left in a tied game, and the Knights score. I'm glad I was listening to the game online while watching the Leafs-Boston. I literally almost threw up when the Bruins tied it up.

London Lightning make a come-from-behind in the series and defeat Brampton A's and advance to the Semifinals against Windsor Express!

http://lightningbasketball.ca/p/1453...ies-against-as

If you haven't been to a Lightning game before, I highly recommend it. Constant action, very entertaining, and that's coming from a guy who finds basketball boring to watch on TV.
-Seeing the overblown reaction from the coach on every play is enough to make the ticket worth it!
