Friday Lunch: Nordic Skiing - Huntly and beyond
Fri 17 May, 1pm, Brander Kitchen
with Roy Young
How did a small rural town like Huntly end up hosting a national centre for an Olympic sport? Roy Young has been involved in Huntly's Nordic Ski Centre for years, and will tell us how local adventures in snow led to the development of Olympic- and World Class athletes. So far the Nordic Ski Centre as seen five local school pupils and alumni aspire to perform at the Winter Olympics and snowsport World Cups. It's a place of opportunity, where local young people are supported to overcome challenges and achieve their dreams.
What is Friday lunch?
The sharing of food is a great leveler. On Fridays, we invite people to speak about topics that relate to art, their travels, gardening and other walks of life. At 1pm our little team, the artists and who ever else wants to join us, have lunch together. Normally we cook vegetarian and attempt to use local produce–from our garden when possible. Visitors make a contribution of £2. All are welcome!
