Ignite Bend – Audience Point of View

A bit of background here. This was a magical evening. Before my speech the Ignite Bend folks raffled off all their sponsor items. They saved the biggest and best for last. A beautiful portrait of a barred owl that had taken up residence in a public park here in Bend, OR.  My son, Scott won the portrait. He was overwhelmed with emotion. Find out why when you see this video! FYI – I re-posted this video because this one has the sound from the audience whereas the professional recording has the sound from the mic and little audience reaction is audible.
