KAMLOOPS - With spring’s arrival comes a grab bag of events this weekend.

The regional library is hosting Geek Week activities, with a few nights of activities planned.

While some events are full, the trivia night planned for 8 p.m. Friday, March 31, at Frick and Frack Pub is still open for anyone willing to admit to their nerdy knowledge. The following day is an adult scavenger hunt starting at 10 a.m. Participants will need to have a good knowledge of downtown Kamloops to complete a list of challenges. To register for either event visit www.tnrdlib.ca.

With winter activities winding down there are fewer days left for snowboard adventures. The Women’s Snowboard Federation, a Canadian organization specializing educating and encouraging women to snowboard, is holding its final park day of the year, this time at Sun Peaks on Saturday starting at 8 a.m. The all girls day camp will teach new tricks and tips on the ski hill’s terrain park. Registration is $120 or $75 for season pass holders.

A new Death Cafe is booked for this weekend, on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The cafe offers people a chance to discuss dying. While typically a no-go topic, facilitators of the conversation say nothing is forbidden.

As housing options grow in the city, some people may consider a cooperative housing situation. The Rarebirds Housing Cooperative open house would be the right place to learn about the alternative living situation. The drop-in open house runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 2 at 772 Battle St. West.
