We are excited to announce that SCCi will be exhibiting at the upcoming Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, coming to Atlanta (at the Georgia Tech Ferst Center again!) on March 17! Check out this year’s thrilling Banff World Tour trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=gCzgqIm_Ofg
The event begins at 7 PM; doors open at 6 PM. Films shown during the three hour event (including an intermission with a great raffle!) are among the best films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival. As the REI event blurb states: “This year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring and though-provoking action, environmental, and adventure mountain films. Traveling from remote landscapes and cultures to up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2013/2014 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.”
We are able once again to get group-discounted tickets for just $12 (adults or children). Also this year, both SCCi and DCG (Dogwood City Grotto) will be exhibiting at the event, so we’ll also need a few volunteers to help staff our tables. If you’re interested in helping out with that, please contact Nancy Aulenbach (see contact info at the bottom of this note). As part of the agreement to exhibit, we’ve committed to trying to sell at least 50 group tickets, so we really need to have a great turnout from cavers! If we sell enough tickets, we may also be able to convince them to reserve us a block of good seats (which they almost never do, but they did for us the year we sold 54 tickets!)
A few years ago, we had a great “festival before the festival” dinner and social hour at the nearby Gordon Biersch restaurant. If there’s sufficient interest, we’ll try to do that again – let Dianne know if you’re interested, as we’ll probably need reservations for a decent sized group.
Please contact Dianne Guthrie (her contact info is at the bottom of this note) if you want tickets, and how many. Group tix are all the same price – $12 (vs. regular price of $15 adults, $13 students, seniors and children), and anyone 4 or older needs a ticket. Once she has purchased your tickets, you’re on the hook for those tickets! Dianne hopes to be able to hand the out at the DCG meetings in February and March. If you won’t be attending these meetings, not to worry – we’ll mail them to you!
