The places we've been

Our apologies for the recent silence, loyal readers! January was a busy month for 1%. Our team spread across the US in January, first to Nevada City, CA for the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

1%’s Jake Whitcomb joined award-winning filmmakers Ben Knight and Travis Rummel in presenting our film, [one percent] of the story, to 4,500 festival-goers over the weekend. At the final showing, Travis and Jake were joined onstage by 1% co-founder, Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard (pictured above).  Our film will join the touring festival as it visits 110 locations across North America and Australia in the coming year–find a screening near you by checking out the 2011 tour calendar here.

Next, a few of us made the annual pilgrimage to Salt Lake City, UT for Outdoor Retailer.  With several dozen outdoor industry members involved in the show, OR is a great place for us to connect with the 1% network and to meet new members.  Thanks to the support of members Point6 and Venture Snowboards in the form of cozy socks and a speedy snowboard, we hosted a killer happy hour featuring a live performance by Madi Diaz.
