                                     2007 Trip Reports

                                        BRANSON SHOW TIME
                                       November 29 – December 05, 2007
                                                   By Bill Jury
  Ayers Rock and the Rock of Gibraltar, Niagara Falls and Iguazu Falls; the Great Wall of China and
Hadrian’s Wall; the Panama Canal and the Corinth Canal; the British Isles; Scandinavia, Greece and
Turkey; Australia and New Zealand; Central and South America; China; Spain and Portugal.
  We Travel Clubbers have seen them all. Right? There’s not much left to see. Right?
Wrong! There’s much more to see without needing a passport. And it’s fun.
Doubt that? Then talk to anyone who went on a trip to this country’s midsection – Missouri – and
listened and laughed at shows, looked in awe at things like the Titanic, and agreed that “we should do this
more often!”
   I’m talking about the “Branson Show Time” trip in early December. Until now, mention Branson and
many of us think only of Yakov Smirnoff, that funny Russian, or a drive through a small town in the
Ozarks. Well, they were there, too, but we sat in classy theaters, enjoyed music and watched topnotch
shows.
   But I’m getting ahead of myself. We spent the first day in Kansas City, Missouri after flying in from
Seattle. We stayed the night at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino where some of us dumped quarters into a waste
basket. Well, that’s not quite right. Jo and I fed 25-cent pieces into a slot machine, but it had the same
effect as a waste basket. We lost five dollars after watching Paul Bentley feed coins into his machine and
pocket $125.
  The next day, before heading south to Branson, we toured the Truman Presidential Library and
Museum. We “breezed through it” is a better way to describe it. We didn’t have time to absorb all it had
to offer, i.e., the post-FDR era, World War II, the A-bomb decision, the Marshall Plan, the Cold War. We
sampled it. I will go back someday to do it justice.
   If I have any complaints about the entire trip, it was what I perceived as a lack of time on our schedule.
As we gathered to board our coach, I took a short detour to the men’s room. While poised at the urinal, I
heard a loud knocking on the door and a woman’s voice called out: “Housekeeping!” You get the idea. It
set the tone for the rest of the trip. Hurry, hurry, Jury!
  But aside from the tight scheduling, it was a trip to remember, make no mistake. After checking into
the Radisson Hotel, we began our four-night Branson experience with the Shoji Tabuchi show – music
and dancing presented in a spectacular setting of holiday colors.
   A close-up look at the Titanic, the so-called “unsinkable” ship that gained worldwide exposure by
sinking on its maiden voyage, was the next day’s attraction. Heralded as the “world’s largest museum
attraction,” the pretend-ship towers l00 feet above the highway and holds 400 artifacts in 20 galleries.
Each of us was given a “boarding pass” as we entered. Each pass had the real name of a passenger who
had been aboard the Titanic.
  We ate lunch at the American Band Stand Grill and then enjoyed Dick Clark’s American Bandstand
Rock-n-Roll Stars, including Bill Haley’s Comets. Dinner was at the Andy Williams’ restaurant and we
enjoyed the Andy Williams Christmas Show at his Moon River Theater next door.
   After a Sunday breakfast at the hotel, we shopped and browsed in Old Town Branson, then visited the
College of the Ozarks campus where students earn their tuition by working at a campus job. It is an
attraction of its own and has drawn a number of visitors to its campus (known as “Hard Work U.”),
including Margaret Thatcher, Gerald Ford and Tom Brokaw.
  We watched the famous and funny Russian Yakov Smirnoff in the afternoon and ended the evening
with Jim Stafford, a hilarious being.
  Another of our favorites was the Lowe Family of Utah, a four-generation group of singers and
musicians, including a five-year-old girl and her two-year-old sister, both of whom played the violin!
                                                                                                           5
Their grandfather was the only one I’ve ever heard play “Danny Boy” on a trumpet. His mother (the 83-
year-old great grandmother) played the piano.
  Dinner that night was aboard the Branson Belle, a paddle-wheel showboat, where we ended the evening
with the Pierce Arrow Show, billed as Branson’s “hottest performance.” We heard everything from
country to gospel music plus – you guessed it – a very funny comedian.
   On the last day, we stopped at Carthage, Missouri, and visited the Precious Moments Chapel with its
famous figurines. The town of Carthage is known as the place where the Civil War began. We admired
its mansion-like houses and stopped a couple of times to check the price printed on for-sale signs.
  As we drove out of town, our driver used the horn to greet kids who smiled and waved. We smiled and
waved back. Even a cop in a police car returned our waves.
  Everyone was in a good mood as we drove back to Kansas City and prepared to catch the plane for
home the next day. It was a good trip, Blanche Arbogast. You and Lou Noess did a good job.


                                      LIGHTS OF CHRISTMAS
                                         December 9, 2007
                                        By Lee Ann Johnson

        Our coach picked us up at three convenient locations and our travel agent, Kathleen, immediately
treated us to juice and snacks. We arrived at Warm Beach Christian Camp at 2:30 p.m. on a chilly but
dry afternoon and were ushered into the warmth of Cedar Lodge lobby where we waited for our dessert
and show time call. Walking into a beautifully decorated dining room, we found our tables and
discovered them laden with dessert: Four Berry Charlotte, a Fruit Platter, a Cheese and Cracker Platter, a
Chocolate Loaf with Mascarpone and complimented by coffee and water. DELICIOUS!!
    Our happy chatter with dessert was complements by background Christmas Carols on the piano played
by Andrew Harding, a truly talented musician. Then the play, Stages of Christmas, began with scenes
from a familiar story of a young couple’s first Christmas together during the 1890’s. Each wanted to buy
something special for the other but had very little money to spend. So, she sold her hair to buy a gold
chain for his pocket watch; he sold his pocket watch to buy beautiful combs for her hair. The same
theme was ably repeated as the story progressed into the war years, the depression, the 1950’s, 1980’s,
and today’s computer-driven cyber-culture. With very few props, the talented actors capably
communicated not only the theme but also the settings for our imaginations as we watched and listened.
    After enjoying desserts and the delightful play, we walked out of Cedar Lodge into an amazing sight.
Yes, it was no longer just a camp; it was truly transformed into a spectacular fairyland with beautiful
lighted scenes everywhere. Walkways rimmed with lights, lighted geese and animals on the lawns,
lighted ducks and swarming bees overhead, lighted mountains in the distance, lighted trees, a waterfall, a
bird house village and much more. We enjoyed listening to a country western singing duo while we ate
BBQ pork, corn bread and salad at Tinhorn Town. A choir, orchestra, and soloists both entertained us
and led us in singing Christmas carols in the Joy Land Concert Hall. At Deer Mountain Lodge we
listened to a gifted storyteller spin tales of Christmas and also play Carols on her violin. Several gift
shops invited us in to browse the unique holiday treasures, many of them handmade. We enjoyed riding
the Polar Express and the draft horse wagon rides around the grounds to see some of the sights we missed
while walking. All too soon it was time to leave. Many of us look forward to going next year with
family and friends, and it could be a wonderland experience for the children in your family.

                   RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
I wish to participate myself, or with a minor child participate, in courses or activities of the Boeing Employees
Travel Club (hereinafter referred to as the "Travel Club"). In consideration for the right to participate in Travel Club
courses or activities, I acknowledge and agree as follows:
1. I am aware that the Travel Club is an employee recreation club sponsored by The Boeing Company. I
acknowledge that participation in Travel Club activities is entirely voluntary and unrelated to my or any other
person's employment or job duties. The term "Travel Club activities" means any activity organized or conducted by
the Travel Club or for which the Travel Club is responsible, including any transportation for which the Travel Club
is responsible.
2. I am aware that Travel Club activities may involve risks and dangers, including the risk of serious injury or
death. I certify that I am aware of and accept full responsibility for all of the risks involved in Travel Club activities,
including but not limited to the risks inherent in travel and in the travel environment, whether caused by weather
conditions, snow or terrain conditions, the forces of nature, the hazards of transportation, the actions or
negligence of Travel Club officers, instructors, members or participants, or any other persons, or accidents or
illness in remote areas without medical facilities.
3. I accept my responsibility and the responsibility of any minor for whom I am signing this Agreement to adhere to any rules,
policies and instructions provided by the Travel Club for Travel Club activities.
4. I agree to RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS, INDEMNIFY AND DEFEND the Travel Club and The Boeing Company, and their
respective directors, technical directors, officers, instructors, members, employees, and agents, FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY,
CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH PARTICIPATION IN ANY
TRAVEL CLUB ACTIVITIES BY MYSELF OR ANY MINOR FOR WHOM I AM SIGNING THIS RELEASE AS WELL AS ANY
COSTS OR EXPENSES, INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES, INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH CLAIMS.
5. If I am signing on behalf of a minor, I acknowledge that I am releasing and indemnifying against any and all claims that I may
have as the minor's parent or legal guardian, whether or not the release of the minor's own claims is found to be enforceable
under the applicable law. In the event that the release of the minor's own claims is held not to be enforceable, I AGREE TO
ACCEPT FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY SUCH CLAIM OF THE MINOR AND TO HOLD HARMLESS, INDEMNIFY AND
DEFEND THE TRAVEL CLUB AND THE BOEING COMPANY, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, TECHNICAL
DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, INSTRUCTORS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS, FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS BY
OR ON BEHALF OF THE MINOR ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH PARTICIPATION IN ANY
TRAVEL CLUB ACTIVITIES BY MYSELF OR ANY MINOR FOR WHOM I AM SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT AS WELL AS
ANY COSTS OR EXPENSES, INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES, INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH
CLAIMS.
6. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RELEASE AND INDEMNITY PROVISIONS IN PARAGRAPHS 4 AND 5 APPLY TO ALL
CLAIMS FOR INJURY OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE, INCLUDING THE NEGLIGENCE OF ANY PARTY
RELEASED HEREIN. I FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE BINDING ON ALL FAMILY
MEMBERS, INCLUDING MINORS, GUARDIANS, HEIRS AND ANY EXECUTOR OR PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE OR
BENEFICIARY.
7. I agree that this Agreement should be enforced to the full extent permitted by law. If any section or part of this Agreement is
held not to be enforceable under the applicable law, the remainder of the Agreement shall be enforced. The release and
indemnification provisions of this Agreement do not apply to reckless or intentional acts unless such provisions are permitted
by the applicable law.
8. If I am signing this Agreement as an adult participant, I state that I am 18 years of age or older and legally competent to sign this Release of
Liability and Indemnification Agreement. I understand that these terms are contractual and not a mere recital. I have signed this document of
my own free act. I HAVE FULLY INFORMED MYSELF OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS RELEASE AND INDEMNITY BY READING IT BEFORE
I SIGNED IT.
9. If I am signing this Agreement for a minor participant (parents or legal guardians must sign for all persons under 18 years of age), I state that
I am the parent or legal guardian of the minor participant signing this Release of Liability and Indemnification Agreement and that I am legally
competent to sign this Agreement on behalf of the minor. I have discussed with the minor the risks and responsibilities of participating in Travel
Club activities and represent that the minor is sufficiently mature to understand the responsibility to abide by the rules, policies and instructions
of the Travel Club. I will accompany and supervise the minor during all Travel Club activities. I understand that these terms are contractual and
not a mere recital. I have signed this document of my own free act. I HAVE FULLY INFORMED MYSELF OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS
