Actor, Playwright, Dan Fagan visits with Minot Today on KHRT Radio about the World Premier of HONEYMOON IN MINOT. Mark my words, Dan Fagan is due to be a household name as a playwright and producer. This weekend, April 11th - 13th, is the premier of HONEYMOON IN MINOT at the Alshire Theater in Hartnet Hall of Minot State University. You don't want to miss this play! Call MSU for tickets and you too can say you were there when Dan Fagans career exploded into a national phenomenon.
Talk about FUN! That's exactly what Savanna and I do and just talking to Savanna was a lot of fun too. I think it's great that Collegiate Baseball is back in Minot for another year. As a neighbor to Corbett Field I can tell you that it used to be that I'd see about 20 people in the seats at Corbett field UNTIL The Sabre Dogs showed up. Now when the dogs play it's not unusual to see 1,000 people in the stands. What a thrill to see our Historic ball park come back to life! This is the kind of thrill our parents and grand parts got many years ago in Minot ND. This is FAMILY fun! It may be hard to believe but Corbett Field has become "Thee" hot spot for teen as well as the whole family for the summer.
If you think rock art is Velvet Elvis or weird album covers you need a little educating from Linda Olson, Professor of Studio Arts at Minot State University. I could not believe how fast the time went on this subject. Linda tells us about some local (ND rock) at and more. BTW the proper names for rock art are petroglyph (art carved into rock), pictograph (art painted unto rock), and petroform or geoglyph (art made from rock). We also talk about fiber arts. Again, just to clarify, fiber arts involve fiber... not fiber optics.
Here I am, doing another Arts interview. Why? Because I love the Arts. As I've said before: Artists have an eye for God's beautiful creation in each in their own individual way want to high light or imitate it.
Linda Olson has a GREAT eye for art and loves to teach art to students of all ages. She is close to retiring as a professor at Minot State University but even when she does retire she won't be giving up her favorite art, the ceramic arts, or teaching (as she has just built a beautiful studio off of her home so she can continue her work). I hope you enjoy our visit as much as I did and remember you can listen in to these interviews live as they are broadcast on KHRT Radio in Minot ND.
Karen Hamilton and Jackie Harvey have teamed up to open "The Clogging Place" in Minot ND. Karen & Jackie were part of a performance team in Minot and when the leader of that team started talking about closing down the team they decided that Clogging must live on in Minot.
Karen & Jackie want to teach the art and fun of clogging with the emphasis on FUN and not on being part of a performance team.
The Clogging Place is located at 1401 4th Street SW Minot in the lower level of the Living Waters Family Worship Center.
Clogging is not to hard to learn, not even for a old guy like me, and it's a fantastic cardio workout. I'm going to give it a try just to help me loose a few of the extra pounds I gained this winter (however the girls said they are conveniently located a half a block from the DQ).
For more information you can contact Karen and Jackie at TheCloggingPlace@gmail.com .
Kay Eaton left the nursing field 20 years ago to start a Christian book store. With no retail experience she learned as she went along... including the fact that a Christian book store ought to have Bibles on the shelf. Gideon's Trumpet is a favorite with our family (and not just because our daughter worked for Kay). Gifts from Gideon's trumpet are special because they reflect our faith and our family is based on our faith in God.
Weekends just don't get any BIGGER than this coming March 16th and 17th in Minot ND. 3 BIG events that will surely fill all the Hotel/Motel rooms and pack the restaurants over the weekend.
1) The Boys Class B Basketball Tournament is in town. About 95% of North Dakota's schools fall into the class B category. Students, parents, close relatives and those 20 times removed will be coming to Minot for this tournament.
2) The Abrahamson Rodeo & Rodeo School will be in town for Magic City Madness. Ye Ha! What a great time for participants, observers, and photographers like myself.
3) Volleyball! Minot Rec Commissions 29 Annual Volleyball Tournament. The biggest open volleyball tournament in the State will be here this weekend as well. These are NOT school teams, these are open teams much like the Mcquade softball tournament in Bismark ND. Men's teams, women's teams, and mixed teams are set to play. Come enjoy.
