Crossing the Ice:

This film follows Australian adventurers Justin Jones and James Castrission’s 2012 journey across Antarctica to the South Pole and back.  Making history, the duo tackled the perilous journey totally unassisted — no sled dogs, no wind kites, just two men on skis, dragging their food, their shelter and themselves across 1140 kilometers of barren ice … and back again.   Running time:  44 minutes

Crossing the Ditch:

The film tells the extraordinary story of two young men who crossed the extremely treacherous Tasman Sea in a kayak.  The Tasman, which spans 2200 kilometers between Australia and New Zealand, had never before been successfully navigated in a kayak.  Many had tried, and all had failed (once with a tragic outcome).  In 2007, Australians James Castrission and Justin Jones took on the Tasman and conquered it.  In their tiny kayak, they battled ten-meter towering waves, massive storms, sharks and currents that conspired against them.  Running time:  55 minutes

Moran State Park, 3572 Olga Road, Olga

The Orcas Island 50k (and its sister race, the Orcas Island 25k) is quite unique in the trail running world. The course alone makes this race special - old-growth forests, tough climbs, and spectacular views of surrounding islands, mountains, and Puget Sound - but what truly sets it apart is the sense of community.  With live music, great post-race food and beer, and a chance to hang out all weekend on a gorgeous island with your trail runner friends, these are the oldest and some of the most beloved of all the Rainshadow running races.  Runners will have until 5:00 p.m. to complete the 50k course.

Enjoy the Bolshoi Ballet's live streaming event at the San Juan Community Theatre. In Tchaikovsky's classic ballet, the royal family and their guests are gathered at the palace for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight; young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony. 

With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.
