At Smith School, 216 Addison Road, Glastonbury. Mountaineers, environmentalists and documentary filmmakers from around the world submit their latest films to be judged by top people in the film and outdoor industries.

The 2½-hour film showcases rock and alpine climbing, whitewater kayaking, skydiving, snowboarding, environmental issues, mountaineering and much more. Sponsored by North Cove Outfitters to benefit CAS's Center at Glastonbury. Door prizes. Admission: $15 in advance** (contact North Cove Outfitters, 860-388-6585 or www.northcove.com) or $15 at the door.

FIRST PRIORITY: Rock gym trip to PrimeClimb: noon to 5:30 or so. Cost will be about $25 or so. We will meet at Konover and go to an unknown (at this time) stairwell to practice knots and belay techniques. I will not come in unless someone emails Jstewart@hartford.edu their interest by noon Saturday and phone number.
SECOND PRIORITY: If no one expresses a solid interest in climbing by Saturday noon (and Sunday looks like a good hiking day), I will email members Saturday afternoon an alternative Sunday hike plan.
