Our hosts for the evening
FOLLOW UP: The banquet and Silent Auction was a big success. Thanks to the Mighty Women for having us and putting together such a great event. We hope we get to come back again. We also loved the crowd and the feeling was reciprocal, we might even get another gig out of it. Sometimes good deeds do go unpunished. I’m posting a picture taken by Jeanine Hemel, tanks so much.
Thanks also to our fabulous cast: Cindy McGean, Mary Thomas, Max Moss, Phil Bursch and Sam A. Mowry.
And here is a link to the Shadow episode “The Bones of the Dragon” in honor of the Dragon spirit in everything, even OTR.
Happy national audio drama month 2014.
As you may know, Dragon Boating is big among the Willamette Radio Workshop crowd, so we were honored to be asked to provide a little entertainment for The Mighty Women Dragon Boat Team‘s Fall Banquet and Silent Auction. It’s a great event at the Portland Brewing Company, with sliders and beverages and live radio entertainment (which, if you’re reading this hear, is of some interest to you).
We will be performing our Dragon Boat enhanced version of the Classic Battling Bickerson’s with real life husband and wife (and padding partners) Sam A. Mowry and Cindy McGean (Mighty Woman). Then we take you on an Otherworldly adventure with Buck Rodgers! Sam and Cindy are joined by Mary Thomas (Mighty Woman) and Max Moss as the heroic Buck Rodgers. Phil Bursch (Dragon boater and Flag catcher for the No Teacher’s Left Behind team) will be handling the live sound. We are really looking forward to this one.
The Mighty Women’s mission is to build strong community, fitness and fun through competitive dragon boat racing where the rewards of friendship, spirit of cooperation and respect for nature are encouraged by all. We are a community based tax-exempt 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. The club was formed in 2002 and enjoys competing all over the Northwest and Canada. We promote the paddling sports of dragon boating and Polynesian outrigger canoeing. While winning is important to the team, our focus remains firstly on family and community commitment.
