Description

Thomas Summer “At The Dinner Party” | Lions Bay Colloquium + Mixer

Our speaker, Thomas Summer, is an Austrian global adventurer and ULTRA runner I met last year in Africa. He had just summited Kilimanjaro in 5 hours. 11 hours round trip, which was the 5th fastest time on record. Absolutely unreal. And he just turned 30.

He's left his native Tyrol mountains to prepare for the World's Largest Adventure Race in Augusta, Australia. How? by running the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Ranier as fast as possible—and looking for other adventures!

Summer will be sharing his incredible story of what it takes to (literally) scale mountains quickly, overcome adversity (a rapid decent can be excruciating and even life-threatening) and live to tell the tale.

The Installation. Each attendee is expected to bring a place setting (dish, drinking vessel, knife and fork) that represents a personal achievement or challenge they've overcome. This not only stands as a personal statement, but an exceptional conversation starter. Seating will be at long tables in a triangular form—which is a unique way to spark rigorous dialogue and fun among all who attend.

The Dinner is potluck, so please bring a plate of food and drink to share.

What to Bring: Drink & plate of food to share. Please also bring one complete place setting that reflects your unique personal journey including: placemat or runner, dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, dinner fork, salad/dessert fork, knife, teaspoon, water cup, wine glass, coffee/tea vessel. Don't worry, should you choose NOT to bring a place setting, one will be provided for you.

Make a Donation: Get a Tile. For this event, with every $10 #GRATITUDE Sustaining donation one "Wish You Were Here” ceramic tile will be placed in the centre of the room with a name of your choosing (living, dead; real or imaginary) so that someone else's struggle and/or achievement may be represented as well. This is a very “Judy Chicago: The Dinner Party” idea. We are honoured by your donation and will contact you directly for the name(s) you choose to include.
