So in addition to the totally cool ski jumping event happening this weekend, there are other interesting events coming to New England in February.
Nest week, Jenny Mackenzie, who did the documentary "Kick Like a Girl" is coming to the area. She will be screening the film and speaking at UConn on Tuesday the 17th at 7.
The next day, the 18th, the film will be in Northampton, MA for KidsBest Fest, a children's film festival. (Not sure if Mackenzie herself will be there as well.)
The movie will also be screened at the Brattleboro (VT) Women's Film Festival in March.
On Tuesday the 24th, the Boston Breakers coach and former national team coach Tony DiCicco will be speaking about "positive sports coaching" at Masconoment High School in Boxford, Massachusetts. Too bad there has to be a special talk on positive coaching--one would thinking the coaching should always be positive but, of course, most of us know this not to be the case.
That's what I've got for now. Happy to post events whenever I hear about them so let me know if there's one that I should advertise.
