Sangre de Cristo Mountain Works is sponsoring another cool event, the 5th Annual Reel Rock Film Tour. There will be a 730pm screening tonight (11/11) at the shop. The production is a compilation of top bouldering and rock-climbing short films, produced and sponsored by Sender Films, Sangre de Cristo Mtn Works, the Santa Fe Climbing Center, and the Santa Fe Brewing Company. Admission is $10, and SFBrewing will be supplying their new canned beers.
Along similar lines is this week's Santa Fe Ski Swap, Fri-Sun at the Genoveva Chavez Center. Admission is $25 on Friday, $2 Sat., and free on Sun. I know I'm in the market for a helmet and some cross-touring gear this season. I'm also in the market for a lot of cold white fluffy stuff, and one of those canned beers they'll be having at that Mtn Works event.
Running related events include the upcoming Fowl Day Run 5K, on Sat. 11/20 at Fort Marcy Park. The Girls on the Run crew will be there which is always fun. Like always, donations of food and clothing, or a contribution to the Salvation Army (on-site) are requested in lieu of registration fees - one of the reasons why this is such a great run. The course is laid out a lot more like a tough cross-country race than a road run (another reason), and the prizes handed out include lots of pumpkin pies and donated gear from REI (yet another reason). Get me some of that.
The Atalaya Turkey Trot 5K is Thanksgiving morning (11/25). This race may be the largest 5K run in the city, with a field of 400+ runners. Competition seemed particularly tight up-front last year. They do a great job, it's a great event to see everyone you've raced against during the year, and the money raised all goes to the school. This is the last large area run until January.
Weather reports for this week are calling for snow up above tree-line. Homeys better have their story straight or I'm going to be severely disappointed.
