I'm proud and excited to announce... Ignite Bend 1! Getting to this point has taken a lot of work and energy from some very talented local folks. I am so excited that this is finally happening...
Burning ideas are spreading across Central Oregon as the region prepares to host its' first “Ignite” event on Thursday, February 12th at 7:30 pm. Speakers are preselected and proposals are still being accepted on the website – ignitebend.com. If your topic is chosen you get five minutes on stage to share your idea. But here’s the catch – you only get 20 slides and they rotate automatically after 15 seconds. Organizers are also looking for sponsors to help cover event costs, and volunteers to make sure the night goes smoothly.
Come join us for an incredible community event!
Where: The PoetHouse Art in the TBD Loft - entrance through The Wine Shop at 924 NW Brooks #100., Bend, Oregon
Day: February 12th, 2009

Tickets: Admission is free but space is limited. Guarantee yourself a spot in the audience by reserving your ticket at http://ignitebend.eventbrite.com/.
This should be a really fun night, and I am excited to see what types of talks are submitted. Hope to see everyone there!
