Friday night is a FREE night for registered guests, and there is a lot going on:
- At 7:00 pm, Pete Walterscheid will entertain everyone with a magic show (see Magic by Pete, "Stage Magician of Year Contest" Jan, 2015). Pete has entertained at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA. He was honored by winning First Runner Up for Stand-Up magicians in January 2017. He certainly is an entertainer that you will want to see.
- At 8:00 pm, James Moore a busvlogger,(see video), will be our speaker. He will inform us on video blogging. His motto seems to be "Life is what you make it. Let's get our hands dirty." Maybe he'll even tell us about hunting inside bears' dens.
- To end the evening we will have a Read Around. Each speaker will have five minutes to read from their book(s) or tell something about their book(s). Joyce Long, president of District Three, also wants to introduce you to her puppet, Zortz.
Please plan to come to the convention early enough to enjoy Friday evening!
