When: Sunday June 30, 2002

THE snow season has well and truly kicked off this year and many will make the trip down south to bask in the white stuff.

But for the Novocastrians who can't make it to the slopes this year, ClubNova Panthers Newcastle is offering the next best thing.

ClubNova will present the annual premiere of the new Warren Miller film, Cold Fusion on the club's big-screen television on June 30.

Fans of Miller's previous work won't want to miss his latest offering which features death-defying jumps and world records caught on camera.

Aged 76, Miller has been making the adrenalin inducing films for more than fifty years - Cold Fusion is his 52nd film.

The film features some of the world's best skiers and snowboarders in action.

It moves through the peaks of Iran, the hidden glaciers of Kenya, cliff jumps in Switzerland and huge gap jumps in Utah's backcountry.

Proving they are some of the best in the world, two athletes in the film break world records right before your eyes.

At the Nissan Big Air Exhibition, Matt Chojnacki breaks the freestyle aerial world record with a quadruple twisting quadruple-a jump.

The move is so technical that it was banned in Olympic competition.

Base jumper Dave Barlia can be seen launching of a cliff, flying through the air for a record 41 seconds before pulling his parachute.

ClubNova will screen the film at 4pm and 7pm.

Tickets are available from the club on 4926-2700.
