Sunday: Special Film Screening by Miho Aida

Miho Aida is in town to screen her film :The Sacred Place Where Life Begins | Gwich’in Women Speak.  Miho is traveling by bicycle from California to Seattle with her documentary movie and a petition to stop oil rigging and gas development on Gwich'in land in Alaska. 

See more about her film here: http://mihoaida.com/gwichin/

And more about this ambitious and incredible woman here: http://www.mihoaida.com/about-miho/

This film is just one of many projects that she is involved with to document and empower women through outdoor role models.

Let's meet at 7:00pm in the downstairs common area at SFI where we can share some refreshments and have a networking meet and greet. Then at 7:30 we will head to the theater for the screening.

I know this is short notice, but I hope you can join us.

    Can't wait to meet Miho! Stuart, just a thought...perhaps you could cross promote this with some of the environmental and outdoor MeetUps? I've had good luck with that.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
