Jim & Pat Frank, Publishers [email protected] Oct. 30, 2014 ~ Vol. 595 YOUR ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE BRANSON … HERE WE COME! Two years ago a group of FRANK TALK travelers enjoyed a great trip to Branson, MO. What made it special was that we went during the annual Music Fest celebration, and the event certainly lived up to its hype! Music Fest is a two-day event that features about 20 of the acts presently appearing in the various theaters in Branson. It’s a great opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of a fantastic entertainment city all in one location. Complete details about the trip are on pages 12 and 13 of this issue. People who have traveled with us know that we are normally not content to do things in the normal way, and this trip is no exception. Yes, we’re going to see some shows just like all the other travel companies do. But, in addition, we’re staying in one of the swankiest hotels in Branson. The beautiful Grand Plaza Hotel will be our headquarters while we’re in Branson. And, we’re not only going to stay in a ritzy place, we’re going to eat like kings and queens, as well. One of the highlights of the trip will certainly be seeing three of the Osmond brothers—Jimmy, Merrill and Jay—perform for the first time since 2011 in their own show at the Andy Williams Theater. Another “highlight” of the trip will actually have nothing to do with the music business. I thought that offering our people something a bit “different” would be interesting and we’re doing just that! Check this out! Next Issue: Nov. 11, 2014 This picture scene is from the Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, and we are going to spend some time there while we’re in Branson. We’ll be enjoying a two-hour tour of the park riding on a tram and walking a bit if we want. The park is full of gorgeous scenery, and we know you are going to enjoy it. We do know we’ll be seeing the Osmond boys as part of the trip, and we’ve “penciled” in a couple of other acts besides the actual Music Fest performances. We’re still looking at some other shows, and we still may change one or two destinations if we feel the new shows would be more interesting. UPDATES Pat and I were out of town for a bit of R&R a couple of days this past week. Unfortunately, when we get home, it seems we have twice as much work to do as normal! Still have some mail to catch up with, but I do know for sure that the Holiday Ice Spectacular is a definite go on December 15. There are a few seats left, but it is not in danger of being cancelled. That show is priced at $79 a person and includes stopping at the Willow Bend Country Club in Van Wert, Ohio, for a great evening buffet. I’m also happy to report that the upcoming Dynamic Duo casino trip is also a go with enough people signed up already. Again, there are some seats left, but I would advise you to let me know soon if you’re thinking of going. It’s a great day of entertainment at $44 per person, with $40 of it coming back to you in the form of casino incentives. The combined incentives total out at $30 worth of casino money and $10 worth of food for each person. $4 does make for a rather inexpensive day. By the way, we’ve added pickups in Bryan and Holiday City, Ohio, to the mix! The Nova Scotia trip still has some seats left and again is a definite go. A lot of people are really looking forward to that trip just as I am. Pat and I have been there and can personally attest to the beauty of the area. You’ll see sights you won’t see anywhere else in the world. It is truly a trip you’ll remember for the rest of your life! I hope to have details of our first-ever trip to Florida in the Finish Line Restaurant next issue. I really want to take a busload to St. Augustine, FL. Great food — Great price! It is a very historic area on the Daily specials. Atlantic side and probably not Senior discounts. as “used” by northerners as “A No-Smoking Restaurant” some parts of Florida. Many of Open 7 days per week us are not able to take months to go “south” because of jobs or QUALITY ICE CREAM financial considerations, so I’m OUR SPECIALTY! hoping this will provide an op75 W. Carleton, Hillsdale, MI. portunity for some of you to at least enjoy Florida for a week! 517-437-3470 Visit our FRANK TALK website — http://www.franktalkonline.com FRANK TALK ADVERTISING SERVICES, P.O.
