A new storytelling series presented by Feathered Friends!

Introducing The Bight: Adventure Story Series, a story sharing experience centered around outdoor adventuring from sound to summit! Each event will feature 4-8 presenters telling short stories about the night’s theme. Seasonal themes will range from spring snow sports to alpine climbing to thru-hiking, to name a few.

Why The Bight? A "bight" of rope is defined as a fold in the rope or U-shaped section of rope being used in making a knot. A bight is born when pitching a tent, clipping a carabiner, tying your shoes, and tons of other things we do in the outdoors. We felt the small act of crafting a bight in a rope was a great representation of the bight-sized stories that make a big impact in our adventurous community. 

Episode One kicks off the series with...
