Parents are asked to bring a photo of their child or children as well as a cheque for payment. Registration fee is $80 for seven players per side or $90 for eleven players per side.

The Last Trapper
(documentary 2006)
On an incredible Canadian "White Odyssey" crossing 8,600 kilometers by dog-driven sled from Alaska to Quebec, filmmaker Nicolas Vanier met Norman, a modern-day Jeremiah Johnson—a Davy Crockett for a world that has forgotten its past.

Norman, 50, lives in the Yukon woods with a Nahanni Indian woman named Nebraska. A long-time trapper, he doesn’t need society's luxuries. He has his dogs and he eats what he hunts or fishes. He handmade his sled, his rackets, his hut and his canoe with the wood he gets from the forest. Leather is tanned by Nebraska for him in the old way, as the ancient Sekani Indians did. Hunting lynxes, beavers, martens, wolves and wolverines provides the rest.

The Last Trapper made by Christal Films. Photo courtesy Christal Films.

Each spring, he goes to Whitehorse or Dawson to sell furs and buy sundries: cigarette tobacco, ammunition, traps, flour, matches, candles and batteries for his radio. He travels with his dogs. They are silent and allow him to gaze undisturbed at the majestic landscapes he crosses. That is what makes Norman trap. The Great North is in him, and Nebraska carries it with her, in her blood, because the boreal forest is her people's mother.

The audience gets a day-to-day portrait of a pure spirit, existing in accord with his environment, and living respectfully off the lives of fellow creatures.

Screening will be at 5:00 p.m. Regular admission: $7.00 per person; $5.00 for Theatre members, quiet kids under 3 get in free. Presented by Theatre Lac Brome at Arts Knowlton, 9 Mont-Echo. Box Office: 450-242-2270

Night Falls On Damascus (Mystery)
Books by Frederick Highland
Night Falls on Damascus holds up a mirror to the continuing puzzle of the Middle East as it weaves a rich and engrossing tale of murder, revenge, and the corruption of power. With the introduction of Inspector Nikolai Faroun, a new type of hero enters the mystery scene, a man with a hidden past, a Levantine working for a hated Western regime, a man caught between two worlds who can trust no one and call no one friend.

Exile (Mystery)
Books by Richard North Patterson
International bestselling author Richard North Patterson takes his political and legal thrillers one step further by focusing his latest novel, EXILE, on the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Red River
Books by Lalita Tademy
Lalita Tademy weaves together history and the story of her own family to bring us an epic work of fiction, the dramatic, intertwining story of two families struggling to make a place for themselves in an America deeply divided after the Civil War.

For the newly freed black residents of Colfax, Louisiana, the beginning of Reconstruction promised them the right to vote, own property, and at last, control their own lives. But in the space of a day, angry whites would take back Colfax in one of the deadliest incidents of racial violence in Southern history, In the bitter aftermath, the Tademys and the Smiths will have to deal with the wreckage, push on, and build a better life for their sons and daughters over the next seventy years.

The Olive Route (Non-fiction)
Books by Carol Drinkwater
Like the Silk Road and the Spice Route, the Olive Route – stretching 2,200 miles from Gibraltar to northern Syria – encompasses not just a journey, but an epic adventure involving the age-old transportation of a precious commodity. Carol Drinkwater travelled along this beautiful and sometimes dangerous route, uncovering ancient stories, meeting striking and courageous people and tracing its venerable olive culture.

Tracking the Cretans, Phoenicians, Greeks and the Romans, amongst others, she eventually finds her way back to her olive farm in the sun-baked hills of southern France. The Olive Route recounts a thrilling, heroic, sensual and entertaining journey by the bestselling author of the much loved Olive series.
