Mountainfilm-Savannah Packs Them In

SC&K attended both evening showings at this years Mountainfilm Tour in Savannah.
And we are pleased to say it was a well supported event with some excellent celluloid story telling. Friday night was a sell out audience, with the Charles Morris Center packed to capacity. Last nights showing included a snippet of Hotel Charley... Jessie Coombs and Darin Mc Quoids first descent kayak trip down the Rio Piaxtla through the deepest canyon in North America.

Also on the bill was the 'needs to be seen' documentary Bag It.
The story follows an average American, Jeb Berrier, who makes a resolution to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. Did you know that in the first ten years of the 21st Century we have used more plastic than we did in the entire 20th Century ?.

Jeb discovers that not only is plastic contributing to the death of about 100,000 marine animals and birds each year, but that this plastic is even contributing to chemicals making their way into our own bodies.

Chemicals such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates are added during manufacturing. These chemical additives, which are often used in food and drink containers, have been found to leach, and scientists have overwhelming evidence that these chemicals are affecting humans—specifically babies in utero and children.
BPA and phthalates are linked to numerous health problems—cancer, diabetes, autism, attention deficit disorder, obesity, infertility—even smaller penis size.

Congratulations to the lucky people who won SC&K kayak trips in the raffle.
We look forward to taking you on an adventure in your own back yard....just as soon as it warms up.

Proceeds from the raffle go to Georgia Conservancy.
