From Track 'n' Trail

After consistently selling out five shows of the Best of the Banff Mountain Film Festival for the last few years, we added the Vancouver Mountain Film Festival's Best of the Fest Tour to our stable in 2013.  With good success over a two show performance last September, we're bringing the VIMFF to you again and with more of that "Banff" giveaway feel!

At
Track 'N Trail, we're pleased to announce that we're bringing the Best of the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival to Edmonton on Friday, September 26th and Saturday, September 27th. 

For those of you who are huge fans of the Best of Banff, you'll know the drill.  Shows start at 7:30 each night, and the film fest will once again be at the Royal Alberta Museum, 12845-102 Ave, just off of downtown with free parking (and bike racks).  Tickets are $20 in advance and, if there are tickets remaining, $25 at the door.  Tickets usually start moving quickly, so get yours soon!

We'd like to note that while there are some crossover shows between the Best of Banff and Best of Vancouver, since we're the hosts for both,
we will not be showing any of the same shows that we played at the Best of Banff this past January.

We're pretty excited about this opportunity, so we hope to see you there!

 


Regards,

Climbing Nights

On Tuesday evenings (usually after 6 p.m.) there is an informal gathering of climbers at Vertically Inclined Rock Gym (VIRG) for socializing and indoor climbing. If a member is planning on attending for the first time, they should contact the Climbing Chair to make arrangements to be "recognized" as there is no way to know the GMMC group other than to have us on the lookout for the new climber. Climbers of all abilties are welcome! There is a fee for climbing and gear can be rented as well. If someone would like to come and see what it is all about and just hang out, there is no charge. VIRG's address is 8523 Argyll Road in Edmonton.
