Saturday, May 11, brothers Mitch and Zach Zenobi, more commonly known as the “Z Boys,” won the People’s Choice Award at the third annual VideOlympics, a film festival promoting outdoor sports on the Olympic Peninsula.
The Zenobis competed in a field of eight films: Tim Stanford’s “Hurricane Ridge — Party Like It’s 1999” and “2013 Hurricane Ridge Baked Slalom”; Bill Roberds’ “1 Day at Salt Creek”; The McColl Brothers’ “Hurricane Ridge Film Fest”; David Herberg’s “Dedicated”; Sean Halberg’s “Olympic Decathlon”; Stephan Canale’s “Just for the Huck of It”; and the Z Boys’ own “Paradise.”
Because of technical difficulties, the overall winner of the film festival was not able to be announced. The winner will be announced in about three weeks via the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club’s website, Facebook and Twitter. The winner receives $1,000 in cash and prizes.
VideOlympics is hosted by the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club which operates the ski area at Hurricane Ridge.
