Ignite Sheboygan features quick talks

At a recent reunion of my army buddies, on a west coast town know for tourism, our host gave all of us a small sign to be hung on our wall when we got home, as a reminder of our friendship.

Known to hoist a few of great Germans beers while we also defended the Czech border and our country, I guess the sign was appropriate, or at least would have been nearly 50 years ago.

Not sure if it is true or not, but it stated, “ALCOHOL, BECAUSE NO GREAT STORY EVER STARTED WITH SOMEONE EATING A SALAD”.

On Monday, February 13, at 3 Sheeps Brewing, on North Avenue in Sheboygan, we may be able to prove or disprove those words as local speakers present 5 minute talks featuring 20 slides in a Power Point.

Whether you are on the receiving end of the “great story” or are delivering it, a beer might influence the outcome.

Each 15 seconds a new slide will appear as the speaker tells a story and tries to “ignite” your senses in some form or another.

Those featured are, in order of appearance and the title of their presentations are:

1. Penny Bruesewitz, Meet Napolean Hill

2. Michael Sheeks, Don’t Talk to Me, I’m a Tourist

3. Barbara Alvarez, Dear Diary: Where a Century-Old Journal Took Me

BEER BREAK or REST ROOM BREAK IF NECESSARY

4. Kristia Wildflower, The Walkabout

5. Roy Pirrung, The Great Race

6. Bev Schellhaass, Facing Your Fears

7. Kevin Anderson, How a Slacker Got Religion About Democracy

Please join the fun and see if they can ignite something in your life, or simply sit back, watch the slides go by, be entertained and enjoy a local brew.

Then you decide, if someone eating a salad could have accomplished the same great story.

See you in a few miles…roy
