Loverboy & Survivor

For more than 30 years, LOVERBOY has been “Working for the Weekend” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” has been a staple of many gym workouts.

LOVERBOY, known for their trademark red leather pants, bandannas, big rock sound and high-energy live shows are sure to draw thousands to the Town Toyota Center in September. Coupled with Survivor, which was formed in Chicago in 1978 by guitarist/songwriter, Jim Peterik is known for fan favorite songs like “Is This Love,” and “I Can’t Hold Back”.

GS Long's Hell on Hooves Roughstock Rodeo

GENERAL INFORMATION

Tickets: $20 General Admission, $25 Reserved Seating.  $5 Tickets for Children 12 and under

For groups of 10 or more, discounted tickets are available to purchase- call Katie Atkinson at 509-888-7363

RODEO 101

Bullriding-  8 seconds ond 2,000 lbs of terror! As dangerous as it is exciting, bull riders require balance, flexibility, quick reflexes and mostly an incredible mental attitude to step onto the back of a bull. Only holding on with one hand onto a rope which wraps around the bull is only half the battle. After the inevitable 'dismount', bullfighters stationed in the arena protect the rider. The cowboy wears a flak jacket and helmet (not required) Score is 50 points for the bull and 50 points for the rider.

Saddlebronc Riding- The classic event of rodeo. Born of cowboys taming wild horses.  The cowboy only holds onto a thick rein (rope) attached to the horse's halter. Every move must be synchronized with the movement of the horse for eight seconds. An outrider follows the action and helps the successful rider transfer to the pick up horse at full gallup. Score is judged 50 points for the horse and 50 points for the rider.

Bareback Riding - Compared to riding a jackhammer with one hand.  This event requires the strongest cowboys in rodeo. The riders hold onto a 'suitcase handle' on a strap on the horse's shoulder with one hand. The cowboy leans back and kicks his knees up to retain balance with the goal being eight seconds of pulling against gravity. The Popeye forearms of rodeo! This event endures the most injuries in rodeo. Score is judged 50 points for the horse and 50 points for the cowboy.

Barrel Racing - One for the ladies of rodeo. Nothing is as mesmerizing as a horse at full gallop. The rider runs a cloverleaf pattern consisting of turns around three barrels (a knocked over barrel is a five second penalty) and then a furious sprint to the finish! Fastest time wins.

Bull Poker - A measure of dollars and sensibility. Has to be seen to be believed. Four 'poker' players are seated in the center of the arena around a card table. Then a 'joker' is dealt-only this joker is a fighting bull. The last player to remain seated wins the dollars-the sensibility is still in question. Players wear flak jackets and helmets. 

KIDS ACTIVITIES

12 Tribes Mutton Bustin' is a FREE Event! 15 kids per night on a first come, first serve basis.  Doors open at 6pm both nights, so if you'd like to sign your little one up for Mutton Bustin', be sure to come a little early.  There is a 50lb weight limit for Mutton Buster's, and all Children will receive a trophy for participating.  Winner gets a BIG trophy!

McDonald's Pony Rides! $3 Per Child, or 2 Children for $5

Mechanical Bull! Children and Adults of all ages can test out their own Bull-Riding skills on the Mechanical Bull! Children 12 and under are FREE to ride. $5 for adults.

“Beat the Pro”: Play against Sam “Doc” Castañón, Sony Playstation tester and pro gamer

Think you can game? You’ll get a chance to show off your skills against one of the best: Sam “Doc” Castañón. Castañón, a Sony Playstation tester, will be available for “Beat the Pro” challenges at Wen-Con. Castañón has been gaming since Atari 2600 was released. In his own words: “Space Invaders was my game and technically my first shooter. I was the kid that always toted his Turbo Graphics 16 Turbo Express around with him playing Devil’s Crush Pinball because I believed I was going to be the next Digital ‘Tommy.’ I won my first game competition in 1998 having the fastest time in the world for Resident Evil 1 and 2 back to back at my local GameWorks, before games were seriously tracked. …Sony took notice of me and asked me to be part of a groundbreaking experience, the first console-only gamer reality show: “The Tester.” As a response to the fans, the show “Replay with Doc” in the PlayStation Home community theater was born.”

Jeremy Colwell was born and lived his first 22 years in Wenatchee, WA. He spent two years at Wenatchee Valley College and then continued to study painting at the University of Washington. He got married, got a ‘real’ job, had a son, and said adios to said job to be a stay-at-home dad. Had another son.

He volunteered a lot in their schools. The kids grew up and he decided to get another job—one he would love. Coloring comics. So now that’s what he does for the likes of DC, Top Cow, IDW, Dark Horse, and others.

Herb Leonhard was born in Munich, Germany, but grew up in the United States. One of his earliest memories was of a series of German children’s books beautifully illustrated by Fritz Baumgarten. This, along with a childhood spent within the pages of comics, inevitably led to a career as an artist and a love of many of the classic illustrators, both traditional and contemporary, including the Pre-Raphaelites; Maxfield Parrish, Alphonse Mucha, N.C. Wyeth, Brian Froud and Roger Dean. Because of this he remains able to observe the natural world around us with a sense of wonder, and sees every subsequent painting and drawing as a new learning experience.

In a career spanning over thirty years as a professional illustrator and graphic designer, Herb has illustrated more than thirty books and has earned numerous awards & international acclaim. His clients have included musician Tori Amos, Pelican Publishing, Omnibus Press, Ashgate Publishing, Raven Publishing, Steiner Korea and D Magazine. Through his own company The Prancing Pony he has published a series of popular fantasy coloring books, storybooks and various related products.

He lives in Prosser, Washington, with his wife, son, two horses, four cats and a plethora of chickens.

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away… well, no, actually quite recently and close by, a retired television technician looked back on one of his favorite movies and decided to recreate some of the interest and excitement of the STAR WARS films by modeling one of their most endearing characters, R2D2.

The result is a 60″ motorized vehicle suitable for public exhibition and display.

This replica of one of film’s most famous cars is scheduled to be on display at WEN-CON 2017 and available for you to snap a selfie with. The Wells Yellowstone Time Machine “Back to the Future” Delorean replica prides itself in sharing the fan experience for young and old. Pictures are not only allowed, but encouraged at no cost. There is a Hoverboard prop they can stand on next to the car for the perfect photo-op and for that up close and personal interaction.
