NADP Conference made an excursion to the Experience Music Project.  Touring through some of the history of the Seattle and Northwest music scene provided the backdrop to a fun experience for attendees.  The museum-type exhibits were enhanced by a number of exhibits that provided for an experience with different musical instruments and a little training in vocals. 

After a little “training” with different instruments, several adventurous musicians-in-training tried their hand at a mock’n’roll concert.  “Bands” like the Kaviteez, Floss, and the Sharonites sold out virtual concerts in the EMP’s experiential exhibit.

This is Seattle, so of course the rains came and soaked a few of the attendees as they returned to their hotels.  All-in-all, the night was fun for everyone in attendance.

It was the kind of morning you might expect in Seattle; the fog rolling in off of the bay and a light mist making it impossible to stay dry. But when it comes to the Dental Dash at the NADP Annual Conference, a small group of about 20 intrepid runners and dedicated walkers showed up to run, jog or walk their way into NADP Conference lore.

Among the runners Brandon Rosner and Joe Zons of Wonderbox Technologies were the first men to cross the finish line and Amie McGraham was the first woman to finish the 5K run along the scenic bayfront route that ran by the Seattle Aquarium down to the Seattle Art Museum.

After the run, participants received a lovely Conference t-shirt and a sense of accomplishment in their trek.

The hearty bunch of golfers that braved the early hours morning mist and cool tempareatures were rewarded with amazing vistas and feats.

Ryan North with PPO USA and Mark Moticik of Healthation (the event sponsors) both drove par 4 greens.  The winning foursome included Joe Zons (Wonderbox) Ryan North (PPO USA) Juliane Brooks (MVA) and Doyle Williams— posting a strong 58!

Terry Young (Ameritas) took ‘closest to the pin’ honors, while Ryan North had the longest drive (of course) and NADP’s own Evelyn Ireland posted the straight-shot drive.

The event ended with lunch and a golf trivia quiz for even more prizes and best of all – shopping at the pro shop – courtesy of our sponsor Healthation.
