We just had the wrap up of the inaugural 5Point Film Festival here in Carbondale. I was in charge of the public relations for the event – getting stories written in the local papers. It was a huge success with every night selling out! We had some great speakers, thanks to founder Julie Kennedy’s massive connections in the outdoor industry. Silly me, I totally forgot to take pictures!!!
see www.wildsnow.com for a great wrap-up by Lou.
My favorite part of the whole event was seeing Erik Weihenmayer’s presentation. He is the first blind person to climb Mt. Everest, and has gone on to become a successful mountaineer and inspirational speaker. He’s done some great things to help ‘disabled’ people get into sports through a few non-profits he’s involved in. www.touchthetop.com
