Heading off to Motor City

Well, I have a business trip to go to, in Detroit. I'll be gone for about 10 days, and I'm not sure about the wifi situation in my hotel, so I may not get to posting for a little while. (Listens for weeping, hears crickets, shrugs, moves on)

I'm pretty excited about this trip, though. It's the National Fine Arts Festival, an annual event that celebrates and encourages the various artistic talents of Jr. High and High School students. There are awesome scholarship opportunities for students from various colleges if they receive a high enough ranking in their categories. Categories range from writing, film-making, instruments, vocal performance, puppetry, speech, and dance. I've been involved as a coach for years now, but this is the first year I'm working behind the scenes as a staff member. I do still have a vested interest, though, one of the drama groups is performing with a script I wrote. My fingers are crossed.

Anyway, hopefully I'll be posting pictures and awesome stories when I get back.

Off to Motown!
