Join other gold enthusiasts from around the world as they utilize their power, balance, speed and strength to hit a golf ball as far as humanly possible and compete for more than $500,000 and the title of “longest driver on earth”.

The Long Drivers of America are bringing in 91 pre-registered athletes to compete over the next 4 days.

According to the Long Drivers of America’s web site, “The number of competitors that advance to the World Finals from a regional championship is based on the total number of competitors that actually show up, pay and compete the day of the regional finals.”

Golf isn’t your game?  Got a great imagination or a penchant for performing?  Join the Virgin Valley Theatre Group and you too can fly with Willie and the rest of the gang in the Actor’s Workshop.

The Fly Willie workshops have been moved from Monday night to Sunday afternoon/evening from 4-7 p.m. in hopes of gaining more participants.

The present workshop participants have focused heavily on choreography over the summer and now they are ready to develop some character; care to join them and be a part of one of the Pickensquaga gang?

Be a part of the group and become a key character, perhaps the Mayor or even an Air Traffic Controller in the town of Pickensquaga, you never know where it’ll take you….the sky’s the limit when you Fly Willie.

The Virgin Valley Theatre Group is also offering the Shakespeare workshops for those who have a more classic taste for theatre.

Does the thought of Shakespeare intimidate you?  Never fear, the Shakespeare workshops are focused on making Shakespeare accessible to everybody.

Shakespeare workshops are Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m. in the Classroom behind the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery.

Are you ready to find your new best friend?  We Care for Animals may have just the right furry friend for you.  Come check out their pet adoption on Saturday at 150 N. Yucca Street.

Adoption fees include initial vaccines, vet checks and spay/neuter.  Don’t breed or buy, adopt; there are many wonderful shelter dogs and cats all over the area waiting for your love.
