The Race to the South Pole

Feb 17 | 10  am- 12 pm  |  In-person Tallent Hall Room 182 or Online by Zoom
Register by Feb 10

Put yourself in another time, place and temperature! Just over 100 years ago, the great Southern continent of Antarctica was still largely unexplored and nobody had been to the South Pole. Two British expeditions had tried to reach the South Pole, but without success. A third was planned under the command of Captain Robert Falcon Scott of the Royal Navy. They were challenged by a Norwegian team under explorer Roald Amundsen. This gripping true story has all the ingredients of a really good thriller. Register and check it out. Presented by our own Colin Carter.
