What to do in Bozeman, 10/1 - 10/7

SPORT -- Fall cyclocross series begins
Where: TLindley Park Center
When:  WEDNESDAY (10/1), at 6 p.m.
Why:  Even though this sport has been popular in Europe for decades, it's really catching on more recently in the Intermountain West and Montana. Runners, however, may be more inclined to Saturday, "O'ktoberfest Run," at Pub 317 at 5:30 p.m.


Where:  Venues across Bozeman
When:  WEDNESDAY (10/1) through SATURDAY (10/4)
Why: Founded 10 years ago here in Bozeman as a "think-tank meets summer camp," HATCHFest is now described as "a community, movement, and a series of experiences designed to ACTIVATE CREATIVITY to HATCH a better world." It's a huge opportunity for a small group of people (but don't get sore if you feel left out—the vast majority of locals have never been to a HATCH event).  


2014 Bridger Raptor Festival
Where:  Venues from Bridger Bowl to Bozeman
When:  FRIDAY (10/3) through SUNDAY (10/5)
Why:  The annual Raptor Festival, on the other hand, is specifically inclusive of locals.  Bring the kids... or don't, since the keynote speech by Founder and Research Director of the Rocky Mountain Eagle Research Foundation, Peter Sherrington, looks brainy enough that we almost picked it as this week's "smartest" event. Link here for a complete schedule.


KIDS -- Bozeman Straw Bale Maze
Where: On Mandeville Lane, behind Murdoch's
When:  FRIDAYS through SUNDAYS until 10/26
Why:  One of the Gallatin Valley's great fall traditions and an easy hop for Bozemanites.  Just $8. (I'm definitely taking my 8-year-old this year.)


And "the smartest thing you can do in Bozeman this week" is:  

PRESENTATION/FORUM -- "Understanding artificial intelligence and the future of hunmanity and biodiversity" 
Where:  MSU's Strand Union Building ballrooms
When: WEDNESDAY (10/1), from 7 p.m.   
Why: A free presentation and forum with no less than Edward O. Wilson, repeated Pulitzer prize winner, and professor emeritus at Harvard University. (My only concern is that Wilson could be too smart, and most of us may end up feeling the artificiality of our own intelligence.)
