ABC Announces New Series “Expedition Impossible” to Premiere June 21

March 26th, 2011 · No Comments

EXPEDITION IMPOSSIBLE – PREMIERES TUESDAY, JUNE 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m.) – Adventurer, zoologist, big cat trainer and all-around risk taker Dave Salmoni hosts ABC’s epic summer series, “Expedition Impossible,” which features ordinary people doing the extraordinary in the biggest adventure of their lives. The show will feature 13 teams of 3, racing on an expedition across vast deserts, over snow capped mountains and through raging rivers. Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the teams.

Will they crumble under the pressure of having to think clearly in the wilds of the great outdoors, or will they find a way to work together to complete their adventures? After 10 stunning legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line first to claim victory. Mark Burnett and Lisa Hennessy serve as executive producers. Both the television show and format will be distributed internationally by Mark Burnett International Distribution.

Hi Joey,
We would really appreciate it if you would let GMG readers know they can mark their calendars for The Open Door’s annual Empty Bowl Dinner on Thursday, May 12, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Cruiseport Gloucester.

The meal is simple—soup, bread and a cookie. Guests can choose and keep a soup bowl handcrafted for this community event. The bowl goes home as an unspoken reminder that somewhere someone’s bowl is empty.  We have some really great soups this year, and the bowls are some of the best I have ever seen.

As usual, parking is available at Cruiseport or people can park at Good Harbor Beach and take the trolley service provided by CATA to and from the event site.

Tickets this year are $15 ($10 for children under 10) and available at the door. Cash, check or charge accepted.

All proceeds from this event benefit The Open Door Summer Lunch and The Open Door Mobile Market.

For more information call, 978-283-6776, or visit www.foodpantry.org.

Onward!

Peter Prybot Photos From Jessica Scranton

Jessica Scranton came to photograph Peter along with other scenes and people in Gloucester last fall for the May 2011 In Flight magazine for AirTran.

I contacted her and she graciously allowed GMG access to the photos to share with our community after hearing of Peter’s untimely death on his lobster boat just weeks before the article is to be placed on all of Air Tran planes for the Month of May.

You can see more of her work at her website and blog here
