Tyler Type One Diabetes Foundation Endurance
Saturday, October 29th, 2011
The event we have developed this year is more closely tied to our mission. It is called the Tyler Type One Endurance Challenge. It will be held Saturday, October 29th in Bergfeld Park from 10 AM – 3 PM. We believe this event will be a family event for the whole community full of fun “endurance challenges”. Completing these challenges will allow the participants to enter a drawing for prizes given away each hour. This will be an excellent theme for us as the life of a Type 1 child is all about endurance and perseverance since there is no cure for their disease. Creating opportunities to encourage and reward endurance is imperative.
We will have several very large inflatable obstacle courses, a 24ft. rock climbing wall, bungee runs, pedestal jousting, bouncy boxing, and bounce houses for the little ones. In addition to the challenges and prizes, there will be concession stands with delicious food, and concerts in the Bergfeld Park amphitheater with Daves Highway back again this year and local Dustin Becker. We also have Drew Holder coming to speak just before Daves Highway hits the stage around noon. Drew is a former Houston Astros pro baseball player that also has Type 1 Diabetes. He is an inspiration!
There is even a 5K-15K Trail Run benefiting Tyler Type One early in the morning on the same day as our event to add another dimension to this Endurance Challenge. It is being sponsored by Steel Sports and Calvary Baptist Church at Tyler State Park at 8 AM (our event doesn’t begin until 10 AM). You can sign up at www.steelsports.net for the Hot Potato Trot Trail Run at Tyler State Park. After the trail run is over we are encouraging all the participants to come on over to the Endurance Challenge for food, prizes and family fun. Proceeds from the Hot Potato Trot will benefit the Tyler Type One Endurance Challenge.
And finally, there is one more special feature to this event that will appeal to the Type 1 and Type 2 community. We have arranged for a traveling exhibit on the Discovery of Insulin from the New York Historical Society. Trinity Mother Frances is sponsoring this exhibit. We will have a tent set up with this exhibit showing the the discovery of insulin and how it has progressed over the past 90 years to provide the life support our children need daily. This will ad a very special educational aspect to this event.

“Blast” presented by UTT Cowan Center
Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 @ 7:30pm
BLAST!, winner of the 2001 Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event and the 2001 Emmy Award for Best Choreography, is comprised of 35 brass, percussion and visual performers brought together in a unique explosion of music and theatre.
Born on athletic fields across the nation, BLAST! is a novel art form evolved from the showmanship of outdoor pageantry. According to Bruce McCabe of the Boston Globe: Blast! is an exuberant 15-number show that doesn’t falter while bridging the categories of classical, blues, jazz, rock n roll, and techno-pop music.
BLAST! stands, blows, pounds, marches, and whirls with panache. It sent a full house into repeated! bursts of cheering and applause.

Some years ago I made the decision to listen to contemporary Christian music….lasted about half a year and then I went back to my “roots music”. Some ask “Why don’t you listen to CC music”. My reply was (1) It all sounds alike (2) everyone is singing to studio soundtracks (3) no musicianship on display (4) there were NO BANDS..For a child of classic rock 70’s music there was so much missing Well, right HERE is exactly what I was/have been looking for. A real band real musicians real music. At the

Great Swing Music at The Cowan Center

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
•Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 @ 7:30pm
Since their arrival on the music scene in 1993 in a legendary residency at Los Angeles Brown Derby nightclub, Big Bad Voodoo Daddys irresistible live show and aggressive, musically perceptive approach has proven them over time to be the singular standout among the numerous bands that launched the Nineties swing revival.
The seven-man group forged a massively successful fusion of classic American sounds from jazz, swing, Dixieland and big-band music, building their own songbook of original dance tunes, and, sixteen years later, BBVD is a veteran force that to this day adds new fans by the roomful every time they play.
Broadway powerhouse IDINA MENZEL the Tony Award-winning “Elphaba” (the wicked witch) from the international blockbuster musical Wicked performs for one-night-only at the Cowan Center.
With a diverse repertoire of classic pop, musical theater favorites (including hits from Wicked and Rent) as well as songs from her album I Stand, Ms. Menzel demonstrates why she is one of the great vocal performers of our time.
The actress who recently appeared on the hit television show, Glee, will be joined by a 15-piece orchestra in this concert event!
