Tales from the Trail

get more from BRO

Do you have a memorable story from the Appalachian Trail? The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is looking for hikers to share their tales from the trail at “Celebrating the A.T. in 10 Voices” on April 14 in Asheville, N.C.  Each story-teller gets five minutes to entertain and amaze attendees (multimedia presentations are encouraged), and audience response to the presentations will help judges pick the evening’s “winner” who will receive a prize-pack for their infamous trail tale.

The storytelling extravaganza takes place at Jack of the Wood on the evening of April 14. A question and answer session will follow the award ceremony for any lingering questions attendees may have of our presenters. Get a list of topics and sign up for one by e-mailing ljoyner@appalachiantrail.org, with Voices Topics in the subject line. ATC is selecting only one person per topic. The April 14 event will also have A.T. games and prizes.
