October 14 - Murphy's Law - Murphy’s Law will be screening at Princess Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta on Saturday October 14th, 2017 at 4:00pm. Megan reached out to our club and would like people from the cycling community to attend - she will be there to answer questions about the film. Help support indie filmmakers!
On the eve of her 35th birthday, Megan moved back into her childhood home. For the first time in her life, she was alone; both of her parents are dead. In cleaning out her parents’ belongings, she found her father’s journal, long believed lost in a fire. It chronicled his 1973 solo bike journey through Ireland when he was just 26 years old. Struggling with her own grief and broken heart, she decides to take her father’s journal and his original 1973 red Peugeot and return to the land of her ancestors. Will retracing her father’s journey help her to find her own way forward?
The film’s writer, producer and director, Megan Murphy, is scheduled to attend the screening and be available for a Q&A following the film. https://www.facebook.com/events/139528696659946
Saturday and Sunday have been cancelled in lieu of the Ride for Refuge and Harvest Ride.
All other rides are a go, however weather policy still applies. Hopefully we will finally get a Thursday Hill Night!
