Hosted by the Jumbo Creek Conservation Society, our ski and climbing friend Jon Turk’s presentation will kick off the JCCS AGM to be held Nov 20 at 7:30 pm at the Windermere Lions Hall (Visitor’s Centre) - just south of Timmy's on the highway. Show is at 7:30 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m., admission by donation.

Last year Jon and his partner Erik Boomer (at 27, he's less than half Jon’s age) walked, skied, crawled, portaged, and paddled 1,500 nautical miles in 104 days, half a marathon a day over a landscape of shifting, grinding ice and polar seas in what polar historian Jerry Kobalenko called, “One of the last great firsts in Arctic travel.”
