The North American Premiere of the Place of the Gaels was held on Saturday 11/14 at the Rab store in Denver, Colorado, bringing a small piece of Scotland to the Mile-High City. The event was an open house with three film showings and gear giveaways throughout the evening.
Fabrizio Zangrilli, who features in the film, was in attendance and hosted a short Q&A with Jon Frederick after each showing. Entertainment between showings was provided by the excellent Rapidgrass Bluegrass Band, whilst refreshments were provided by Upslope Brewing Company and Creminelli Fine Meats. Colorado Mountain School, partners of Rab, were also at the event and gave away a level 1 or 2 avalanche education course to one lucky winner.
Total attendance for all 3 shows was about 150, with over $500 from a gear raffle being donated to the American Alpine Club.
Many thanks to everyone who turned out, it was great to see you!
