December 14th, 2012 by Tad Sooter

Here’s the Friday preview: Bainbridge edition for Dec. 14. Feel free to give your events a plug in the comment section below. Above, a detail from the 2013 Kids Can Make a Difference calendar, illustrated by Ordway Elementary third graders. The calendars, which benefit programs on Ometepe, are available at Ordway through Dec. 21.

Weather: The National Weather Service predicts rain showers and temperatures in the low 40s this weekend.  Expect a little wind as well, with gusts up to 25 mph.

Sports: Another full slate of winter sports today. Wrestling is away at the Hammerhead Invitational in Silverdale. Bainbridge gymnastics welcomes Bellingham, Mercer Island, Squalicum and Sehome at 6 p.m.

Spartans basketball hosts Franklin. Girls varsity tips off at 6:15, followed by the boys at 8 p.m. A home swim meet was postponed.

See a full Spartans schedule here and follow the Sun’s Prepzone on Facebook for updates.

What’s Happening:

  • Bainbridge Chorale will serve up a generous helping of holiday music this weekend. It begins with a “Family Holiday Concert” at 3 p.m. Saturday at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, and continues with an adventurous “Medieval Feaste of Music” at 7:30 p.m. at the same venue. Catch an encore presentation of the “Medieval Feaste” at 3 p.m. Sunday.
  • The EDGE comedy group makes raucous revisions to a hallowed classic with an improvisational take on “A Christmas Carol.” The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Bainbridge Performing Arts, and returns Dec. 22.
  • Holiday festivities continue along Winslow Way with Santa photos, giving trees, a giant snow globe and an elf hunt (less morbid than it sounds). See the Downtown Association website for a full schedule.
  • Pick up this week’s Islander for more event listings and tell us about your events in the comment section below.

Inside the Islander: Meet the Bainbridge gymnastics team and learn the ins and outs of legalized marijuana.
