“The Road to Orlando”

Introduced by: Rich Martin

Competitive events provide DECA student members with an opportunity for hands-on learning through competition in business and marketing applications.  In December and January, students compete within Washington DECA’s 11 geographic areas, and the top-place winners per event from each area qualify for our State Career Development Conference (SCDC), February 28 – March 2 at the Meydenbauer Center and Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.  SCDC has consistently been the premier event for Washington DECA, attracting more than 3,200 student competitors and 400 advisors and chaperones.  400+ volunteers from the Puget Sound region donate their time and talent to judge these students, determining who qualifies to move on to the International Career Development Conference in Orlando to represent Washington DECA, against 13,000 other DECA Competitors from around the world.  The students who we will hear today have all qualified for SCDC and will be presenting a “condensed” 4 minute version of their oral presentation.

BBRC funds will be instrumental in getting students from the (5) high schools to State where they will have the opportunity to qualify for the International State Career Development Conference, which will be in Orlando in April 2019.

Dine Around - February 9-10th, 2019

By Robin Callan

The annual BBRC Dine Around is an opportunity to gather in small social setting and enjoy a potluck dinner in a Rotarian home.  It is a fun event and presents the opportunity to meet Rotarians in a smaller group than the usual fellowship events.

Sign up by clicking on the yellow button at the top of the form.  Get on the list before February 2.  Please note if you will be attending with a spouse/guest, check if you’d like to attend on Saturday, February 9th or Sunday, February 10th.  We have many wonderful hosts so come for the fun!

The week before the event the hosts will be notified who will be coming to their house as guests.  The host will then contact their guests and let them know what they can bring to contribute to the dinner; appetizers, desserts, salads, beverages, etc.

We hope you will all rally around one of the jewels of our Fellowship events at the BBRC!
