PTBO Game Jam 04

2017-12-07-ptbogamejam-04@2x.jpg

The old adage “too much of a good thing” simply does not apply when it comes to the PTBO Game Jam. Participants simply can’t get enough of this innovative tech event!

PTBO Game Jam 03 will be staged Friday, February 23 to Sunday, February 25, once again returning to the conference space at Fleming College’s Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre, 559 Brealey Drive in Peterborough.

Hosted by Peterborough-based game development studio dotBunnyPTBO Game Jam 04 will see game programmers, designers, artists and others involved in game-development disciplines gather to plan, design and create games in a 32-hour time frame.

PTBO Game Jam 04 is actually three events rolled into one, with two Educational Blocks being offered in addition to the 32-hour game creation marathon.

On Friday, February 23, 6 to 8 p.m., a Youth Educational Block will focus on introducing youths under the age of 16, accompanied by a guardian, to the world of game development via the provision of free toolsets geared to them. The block includes instruction on how to use MIT’s Scratch to create a simple game mechanic, showing how it can be easily changed and added onto to create fun and unique gameplay.

Also Friday, February 23, 6 to 9 p.m., an Adult Educational Block will provide a terrific opportunity for those 16 years old and older who have wanted to create a game but didn’t know where to start. Again, instruction on the use of game creation industry toolsets will be provided to help participants create a simple game that can be expanded upon.

That sets the stage for the main event which starts Saturday, February 24 at 9 a.m. and continues until 5 p.m. Sunday, February 25. Organizers confirm “there will be pressure, there will be pizza and there will be awesomeness” as new games are created around a forthcoming theme.

Admission to PTBO Game Jam 04 is again free but pre-registration is required. Visit https://ptbogamejam04.eventbrite.ca/ and click the Register button. Please note that a ticket is required for each event you plan to participate in.

PTBO Game Jam History

With the goal of fostering a local game development community to the benefit of future generations of game developers, Matthew Davey, the founder of Peterborough-based game development studio dotBunny, organized and hosted the inaugural not-for-profit PTBO Game Jam 01 in August 2016 at the Holiday Inn Peterborough-Waterfront. That event saw 11 games created.

Based on the response to, and success of, that initial foray, follow-up events continue to be held with continual growth and reach.

With the organization of PTBO Game Jam 04, a team of industry professionals continues to work together towards the continued success of the PTBO Game Jam to the benefit of the industry as a whole as well as participants.

It’s estimated that more than 19 million Canadians identify themselves as “gamers,” participating, at some level, in an industry which is expected to grow to a startling $100 billion market value come 2019.

Mouthpiece

26678490_1874035025963059_6876971612170379455_o.jpg

Created and Performed by Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken Directed by Amy Nostbakken Movement Direction and Dramaturgy by Orian Michaeli Lighting Design by Andre du Toit Sound Design by James Bunton Composed by Amy Nostbakken

MOUTHPIECE follows one woman, for one day, as she tries to find her voice. Two performers express the inner conflict that exists within a modern woman’s head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, the progress and the regression. Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text and physicality, MOUTHPIECE is a harrowing, humorous, and heart-wrenching journey into the female psyche.

WINNER OF TWO 2015 DORA MAVOR MOORE AWARDS FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY AN ENSEMBLE, OUTSTANDING SOUND DESIGN/COMPOSITION

Sunday Team Walk!

27459231_1720301238029556_3487359396772630062_n.jpg

Sunday Team Walk is a group walk with our dogs, to work on focus and attention on the handler, loose leash walking and ignoring distractions.The entire walk is like a training class, every time a dog/human/stroller/motorized wheelchair/skier/bike rider (whatever a dog may be reactive too) approaches all we all move off to the side, working on focus and attention on the handler. I work individually with each dog as needed, often walking the dog for the owner to work on specific behaviors. We also add in some parkour style training teaching "paws up" on park benches, rocks, and other obstacles. Many of these dogs can't be close to other dogs at all on a normal walk. This isn't a "stroll in the park" walk :) This is a training walk.:) Cost is $20 for the hour long walk. NO shock/choke/prong collars. NO flexi's! Your dog should be wearing a flat collar or harness and six foot leash. Come out and try one of the new Freedom No Pull Harnesses that I now have available!

The Secret Marathon

image2.jpeg

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7 AT 6:30

CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY ACROSS CANADA

 WALK/RUN FOR WOMENS RIGHTS

IN PETERBOROUGH:  THE RUNNING ROOM, 210 HUNTER STREET W

REGISTRATION IS $15 AT 5:30 AT THE RUNNING ROOM

OR ONLINE AT THE RUNNING ROOM SECRET MARATHON 3K

Psst! Want to know a secret? On March 7 in Peterborough you can lend your voice -- and legs - to the fight for women's freedom to run! 

The “Secret Marathon3K”, a three-kilometre walk/run will take place, beginning at the Running Room store on Hunter Street at 6:30 p.m. March 7 – the eve of International Women’s Day – to celebrate the freedom to run, gender equality and safe spaces for women. 

It will also raise funds for the local chapter of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAFghan) to support the education of women and their families in Afghanistan.

Similar runs will take place at the same time at Running Room stores in 10 Canadian cities.

The event is the brainchild of two Canadians, Martin Parnell and Kate McKenzie, who recently filmed a documentary in Afghanistan about that country's first official marathon and the brave women who ventured to run alongside men in a nation where it is culturally unacceptable for women to ride a bike, go for a run, and, often, pursue an education.

These remarkable women are changing those traditions as they experience of thrill of running and the empowerment that comes with it.

The event is named after the documentary about the Marathon of Afghanistan where the route is kept secret to avoid violent attacks. Pre-race secrecy about the timing and location is vital as Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan are a constant deadly threat — particularly when women dare to take part alongside men. Training, even, requires secret routes and times due to the threats of insults and stoning.

Parnell and McKenzie were inspired to make a difference in Canada when they realized there are those here who don’t feel safe to go for a run or walk at night. There is inequality and risk facing many women today as they try to do something as basic as running and walking in their neighbourhoods. 

 "In Afghanistan we witnessed something really special," said McKenzie, co-director of The Secret Marathon Documentary. "Women and men came together in solidarity, under extremely difficult circumstances, to support the right that all humans should have to walk or run free of fear in their community."

“Many women both here in Canada and in Afghanistan don't feel safe to run at night or alone and we want to change that by bringing our community together to celebrate everyone's right to be free to run or walk in their community,” she said. 

Funds will also be donated to aid the completion of The Secret Marathon film which will allow the story of Afghan girls and women running for freedom to be shared across Canada. It is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2018.  

QUICK FACTS 

Time and Place: Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at the Running Room, 210 Hunter St W Peterborough.
5:30 p.m. Registration, Walk/run start 6:30 p.m.
You can register online a :  https://www.events.runningroom.com/site/?raceId=14758 OR ON THE EVENING OF THE RACE.

Peterborough's International Women’s Day Conference

23231409_2177334709160310_5559559739657239864_n.png
iwdptbo-logo-2018.jpg

On Thursday, March 8, 2018, Thirteen Moons Wellness will host the second annual International Women’s Day Conference at Ashburnham Reception Centre to celebrate the achievements of women, to inspire, and to unite friends, colleagues and communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

The 2018 International Women’s Day global theme is “Press for Progress." With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away, there has never been a more important time to stay motivated, be engaged, and press forward for progress and gender parity. 

This year’s conference theme will be "Engage. Share. Empower." The focus is to provide an opportunity for women to engage in learning, share triumphs and struggles, and ultimately, empower each other so we can continue to thrive as we play important roles in our families, workplaces, and communities. 

“This conference will bring women together for an entire day to feel inspired and empowered to take action to reach their personal and professional goals. The speaker topics and interactive workshops have been selected to address a wide range of women’s issues including financial independence, self-care strategies for mental health, building resilience, and creating meaningful community connections,” says Louise Racine, owner of Thirteen Moons Wellness and International Women’s Day conference committee chair.

Speaker lineup features:  Samra Zafar, human rights activist, scholar, author and social entrepreneur, speaking on authentic leadership; Linda Silver Dranoff, lawyer, author and activist, speaking on advocating for women’s equality; and Judy Croon, comedian, motivational speaker, radio host, Second City standup coach and author, speaking on how to relieve work-related stress with humour.

Attendees will also get to participate in two 75-minute workshops from six available sessions on important topics such as Taming the Busy Mind, Building Resilience, Financial Planning for the Independent Woman, Courageous Conversations, Creating Your Community, and Reclaiming Our Bodies. 

The first International Women’s Day was observed on March 19, 1911, and has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration.

Event Details:

International Women’s Day Conference, hosted by Thirteen Moons Wellness

Location: Ashburnham Reception Centre, 840 Armour Road, Peterborough, ON

Since that time, the Spoon has grown into a dynamic cooperative café and not-for-profit community organization providing hundreds of people with access to affordable local food every single day and abundant opportunities to dig deeper into the food system andlearn about growing, cooking, preserving and advocating for sustainable, just and inclusive food. 

We couldn’t have accomplished this achievement without our members, staff, volunteers, eaters, growers, community partners, good food advocates and everyone else who has been such an important a part of the Spoon community. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received and look forward to celebrating with our extended Spoon family.

Daytime festivities will feature some of our favourite workshops, art projects, root cellar tours, story sharing, spoon carving and by donation soup in the café. An evening celebration in the Great Hall will follow including a delicious feast filled with local foods, a panel discussion, music and more.

St Peter Presents: Beauty and the Beast

26805155_2027455567477155_5316935431186092986_n.jpg

Based on the smash hit 1991 Disney movie dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle. Belle is a girl who is dissatisfied with life in a small provincial town, constantly trying to fend off the misplaced “affections” of conceited Gaston. The Beast is a prince who was placed under a spell because he could not love. A wrong turn taken by Maurice, Belle’s father, causes the two to meet. Hilarity, romance, tragedy, friendship, and true love ensues on this magical journey brought to you by St Peter Catholic Secondary School. 

Directed by: Paul Crough
Choreography: Jennifer Riel
Music: James Wright

Starring: Annie Driscoll as Belle, Gabriel Sherren as Beast, Max Czmielewski as Gaston, Matt MacBean as Lefou, Darby White-York as Cogsworth, Gustav Finley as Lumiere, Andréanne Duplessis as Babette, Jaclyn Branch as Mrs Potts, Kevin Bronson as Chip, Theresa Scott as Madame De La GrandBouche, Oliver Lingertat as Maurice, Tristan Kennaley as Monsieur D’Arque, and ensemble.

Mr. Worldwide has been notified of this event and is rumoured to be attending.

Corb Lund Solo at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre

23405698_10156051246847259_3051813958288827609_o.jpg

Corb Lund comes home to tour Canada, but even diehard fans haven’t seen the JUNO Award-winning country star like this: His “B.S. with C.L.” tour is being billed as “An Evening of Western Conversation, Songs, and Stories” and will feature Lund performing—and BSing—solo. 

“Playing with my band is great, but doing solo shows is a totally different experience that allows me to be more creative and interact with the audience in a whole new way,” Lund says. “It’ll be a lot of fun, too.” 

“B.S. with C.L.” will see Lund play songs, tell stories, and BS with the audience in an intimate and interactive format. Fans are being be encouraged to send questions via text and Facebook for Lund to answer and "B.S." about onstage.

Lund released his 9th and most recent album, Things That Can’t Be Undone, in 2015. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson), the critically acclaimed release prompted Rolling Stone to declare Lund among the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know,” while NPR called it “a high mark of a long career.”

The Lonely: Celebrating The Music Of Roy Orbison

MARKET HALL - PETERBOROUGH - THE LONELY 	- websize.jpg

Thursday, February 8 at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in Peterborough.

Tickets are $47.50 (plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) available at the Box Office; Charge by phone 705-775-1503 or online at www.tickets.markethall.org;

or at Moondance Records, 705-742-9425

TICKETS ON SALE OCTOBER 27TH!

With hits of The Traveling Wilburys and Everly Brothers

Rock.It Boy Entertainment proudly presents THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON on Thursday, February 8 at the Market Hall Performing Arts Centre, 140 Charlotte Street, 3rd Floor, Peterborough.  Tickets are $47.50 (plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) at the Box Office.  Charge by phone 705-775-1503 or online atwww.tickets.markethall.org or at Moondance Records, 705-742-9425.

The BIG O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, his distinctive, powerful voice, his complex compositions and the dark emotional ballads we all love. From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including “Only The Lonely”, “Crying”, and “Oh, Pretty Woman”.  His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Dream Baby”, “Ooby Dooby”, “Blue Angel”, “Blue Bayou”, “You Got It” and “In Dreams”.  As a part of THE TRAVELING WILBURYS Orbison brought us “End of the Line”, “Handle With Care” and “Last Night”.  A prolific writer, Orbison pitched “Claudette” to The Everly Brothers.  The track was a co-number one with the Everlys’ “All I Have to Do is Dream”.  Orbison and The Everly Brothers tore the house down on TV’s Shindig performing Roy’s “What I’d Say”.  Tragically, his life was cut short, leaving us only the music.

And, long may the music live!  THE LONELY delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison.  Veteran Mike Demers leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of the Caruso of Rock.  THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings.  The band has been selling out shows right from their debut.  Tina Coldwell of TLC Entertainment says, “One of the best tributes I’ve seen and I’ve been in the biz for 22 years.”   Be there or be square!

Let the rhythms of Maurice Ravel and George Gershwin carry you away to the jazzy streets of 1920's Paris! French composer Ravel's imaginative works influenced Gershwin's own kaleidoscopes of sound at a time when the boundaries of art and music were being pushed. The orchestra performs Ravel's Ma mère l’Oye, Bolero, Pavane, Gershwin's American in Paris, and inspired young Canadian pianist Anastasia Rizikov joins the PSO on stage for Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.

Venue: Showplace
Conductor: Michael Newnham
Guest Artist: Anastasia Rizikov, Piano (anastasiarizikov.ca)

Ticket holders are invited to join Maestro Newnham at 6:40pm in the Showplace theatre for "Meet the Maestro", a pre-concert chat.

Saturday February 3, 2018

The Peterborough Petes, in association with the Canadian Cancer Society Peterborough & District Community Office, are back for the ninth year in a row with PINK IN THE RINK on Saturday, February 3, 2018 when the Petes take on the Oshawa Generals. Since 2010 more than $529,000 has been raised for women’s cancer research, making Peterborough’s PINK IN THE RINK the top fundraising event in the OHL!

Introducing the Honourary Chairs for Pink in the Rink!

The 2018 honourary chairs are father and son team, Gary & Pete Dalliday and community champion and cancer survivor Tori Sotiriadis. The honourary chairs will help raise funds and awareness as the PINK IN THE RINK campaign looks to raise $60,000, which will bring the ninth-year campaign total to over $590,000.

Funds will be raised through t-shirt sales, game night events, silent auction, online and live auction of game worn jerseys and online donations.

Help us make 2018 the best year ever by donating to either Gary & Pete Dalliday or Tori Sotiriadis donation page.
