(1/1)

Admin Al:
What Climber does NOT like beer, pizza, and a ( great ! ) Slide Show?

CHANGE OF VENUE ALERT Now at NORTH CONWAY COMMUNITY CENTER on south side of the Town Green at the Train Depot.

Come enjoy my new Illustrated History Lecture on "The History of Mt. Washington," New England's tallest peak. Also called Agiocochook by the native Abenaki, meaning "Place of the Storm Spirit" or "Home of the Great Spirit." Amazing how few people know the original name of the White Mountains' highest summit ! The Lecture poster shows the historical breath and quality of this new show featuring : the Crawford Family of Crawford Notch, the Willey Slide disaster, the Cog RR, the Carriage / Auto Road, 1930s & 40s rock and ice climbing in Huntington Ravine, plus 1960s skiing in Tuckerman's. Bonus points if you can identify all the photos in the poster ! Ever climbed the classic run-out 5.7 Sliding Board on Whitehorse Ledge ? Those are "slide boards" that the men are riding down the Cog Railway on, which is what Sliding Board was named for. NEW LOCATION: At the NORTH CONWAY COMMUNITY CENTER, North Conway, NH this THURSDAY, June 15 at 7 PM.

Ticket price includes beer and pizza Invite your Friends !
