Movie "Float" at Nationals

Post by coachchuckaahs » April 22nd, 2019, 2:08 pm

The movie "Float" will be shown in a private screening both Thursday and Friday at Nationals. This film is about the highly competitive F1D indoor competition, and features Albuquerque's own Brett Sanborn, who got his start in SO and is the current world champion. Info can be found at https://floatdocumentary.com/

I hope they let coaches see it too!

Do you know if the film will be available later on for those not attending?

It is on the list of student activities. I would assume that means all students. Hopefully coaches too.

The director met with our students at the end of last month - he spent a decade working on this documentary. Those who attended the premier in Cleveland tell me it's a really interesting watch.
