Experience Music Project Becomes Reality

Smitten by a bout of laryngitis in early May, Patti Payne kept good on her promise to visit the BBRC and tell the story of Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project [EMP]. Patti holds down the job of Community Outreach Director for EMP, which officially opens on Friday June 23, 2000.

Experience Music Project“EMP is getting great publicity the world over,” said Patti. “There are indications that people will attend from all around the globe.” Patti explained that the EMP, a museum of 140,000 square feet, is a “miracle of a building, costing $100 million dollars. It’s all about creativity and nothing else. Paul Allen has taken his passion for music and technology and combined the two into this great endeavor … the Experience Music Project.” More

The Club also earned a District Award for Best Website in District 5030.

Representatives of Golf Outing foursomes competed early Friday morning, vying for a complimentary round of golf at Glendale Country Club. The trick was to drive the ball off the tee the farthest, using unconventional weapons. The golfers had the choice of hitting the ball from the opposite side; hitting from their normal side-but blindfolded; using a hockey stick, or a club with a tennis racquet attached. More

Thought For The Week

Take your pick:
Jimmy Hendrix said, “I’ll probably get busted at my own funeral.”
“The only thing that bugs me is critics. It’s like shooting at a flying saucer as it tries to land, without giving the occupants a chance to identify themselves.”
