What is there to do in Spokane Instead of WWDB Amway Spring Leadership 2012?
This year WWDB Amway is holding Spring Leadership in
on April 20, 21, 22 2012 in the Spokane Arena. Spokane
Riverfront Park http://spokaneriverfrontpark.com/ - I don’t know. The name is not appealing to me. I think of rivers as mosquito spawning grounds. Not to mention you don’t know what kind of evil river serpents are swimming around in there. Oh. I guess that would just be the Amway upline! It looks like they’re open for business starting the week before Amway WWDB Spring Leadership and a one day pass is $19.95 and includes rides on a ferris wheel, bumper cars, tilt a whirl, a carousel, and other rides that all sound a little tame to me. Spokane
So that means another one of my posts where I find things to do in town instead of attending Spring Leadership. Actually sitting in your hotel room watching TV would be more productive than attending the Spring Leadership brainwashing session. Staying at home would save you time and money instead of blowing it on the Amway tool scam and the incidental costs incurred getting and staying there. Anyway gotta get some keywords in cause I got lots of ambots searching which unfortunately means I gotta get going on the other cities besides Spokane too. That would include Las Vegas, Denver, Washington DC, Honolulu, Minneapolis and Calgary. Amway conference WWDB Spring Leadership 2012.
Now what really sucks is that I could have sworn last year I devoted a post about what there was to do in
Spokane and I was going to recycle it but I guess I didn’t or else there was nothing going on in last year. So I’m kind of flying blind here. No insult to anyone from Spokane but it does not seem to be on the radar as far as exciting tourist destinations go. Apparently some Amway cult leaders live in the area. I had to look on a map to find it. Washington! Looks to be east of Spokane by a couple hundred miles maybe? Near the Seattle border. Kind of off the beaten path. Idaho
This was a difficult task. I tried my old friend Trip Advisor and mostly all I came up with were parks, a place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables (a total no-no for ambots who are supposed to consume Nutrilite vitamins instead!), biking trails, and river rafting.
So then I found the visit Spokane website http://www.visitspokane.com/ and clicked on events for April 20 2012 and the first thing that comes up is something that looks like fun called Dummy Downhill last day of the season at a tubecoaster ski hill. Dummy sounds like a good name to throw around at Amway conventions so I looked a little closer at it and its some event held in
. What the fuck? Says its about 5 hours NW of Spokane!!! Like what the hell is that doing in there. I would hardly call that a “nearby” event to take in while visiting Spokane but when you’re that far out in the boonies perhaps 5 hours is the closest town to get to for some fun. The next event listed is also at the same fucking ski hill! So I go a couple down the events list and find something called Best of the Suspense Classics, Anatomy of a Murder. OK now this sounds like something decent for a Scamway weekend. Held at the Bing Crosby theater http://www.bingcrosbytheateradvocates.org/Advocates/Welcome.html Kelowna, British Columbia
Spokane Falls Skyride http://spokaneriverfrontpark.com/index.php/RFP/page/360/ - costs $7.50 or a little less if you’re a kid or a senior. The picture shows riding in an enclosed gondola and getting near the spray. For a 15 minute ride it looks like it might be fun more so if water splashes inside the gondolas!
So sorry folks, kind of coming up dry in this town. But you don’t need to be dry. Surprisingly there are a few wineries in the area. Grapes grow well in
? Try Arborcrest Wine Cellars http://www.arborcrest.com/ . They are having a tulip festival in April so it looks like a chance to see some pretty spring flowers in bloom. Spokane
WWDB = World Wide Destructive Bastards!
Amway WWDB Spring Leadership sucks!
All Amway functions suck!
