<i>Fans Will Love ‘Go Vision’ at the Tulsa-UTEP Game</i>

Crown Bristow and Primeaux Kia

GO VISION VISIT: My friend Chris Curtis, the founder of Go Vision, with me at the Tulsa-Southern Mississippi game October 3 at the EOOC-Tulsa Sports Commission tailgate party.

I’m really excited about the Tulsa Golden Hurricane-UTEP football game to be played at Skelly Stadium Friday, October 27. Not only will the game be played on national television, the fans at the game will have the opportunity to view plays and replays on Go Vision.

My friend Chris Curtis from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area founded Go Vision based on his many years of experience in the event video screen industry. He was an early pioneer in the creation of the portable daylight large screen industry in the United States beginning in 1990. The company he co-founded in 1995, Screenworks, is now the world’s leading provider of portable stadium sized video screens. Chris has been involved in providing jumbo video for presidential inaugurations, Rolling Stones tours, the Olympics and several Super Bowls among other events, including Big 12, OU, OSU and Arkansas athletics.
Come to the game, Friday, October 27 and be part of the big-time atmosphere. We need to show the nation we are a good sports town, and that we support our excellent football team and coaching staff.

Veterans Day
Let’s not forget our veterans or the troops that are fighting for us today in Iraq and elsewhere. If possible, please attend this year’s Veterans Day Parade in downtown Tulsa on Nov. 10. We will have a float in the parade, and we hope to see you there!
Memorial High School in Tulsa has established a Veterans Memorial and Museum Project. Oklahoma artist Sandra Van Zandt has sculpted the “Carry On!” statute that depicts a soldier of World War II, Korea and Viet Nam eras handing off the Colors to a contemporary military soldier with orders to “Carry On! Come by our KIA dealership to learn more about this patriotic effort.

Mike Ditka’s in Chicago
I had the opportunity to be in Chicago Monday, October 16 with my Talons partner, Paul Ross. We went to Mike Ditka’s restaurant and watched the Bears come back and beat the Arizona Cardinals. What a thrill to see the game in the restaurant of the former Bears coach, and to watch Tulsa graduate and now-Bears coach Lovie Smith win another exciting game.

Speaking of Football
Though the Talons schedule has yet to be announced for the 2007 af2 season, we do know that we will play in the Central Division of the National Conference with Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Lubbock and Arkansas. We are working hard to put together a championship team for our fans, the best in Arena football!

Not only is TU getting national attention for its season, how about those OSU Cowboys and their passing game. Bobby Reid, as a sophomore, should become a national star. And 6’4” receiver Adarius Bowman, the transfer from North Carolina, is amazing. Watch out for the Cowboys!

It was a great disappointment and loss to see Adrian Peterson go down with the collarbone break. I was hoping to see him win the Heisman Trophy. The Sooners will miss him, but they always have lots of excellent players to keep their winning ways. Good luck to Adrian whatever his decision is for the future.

The Blue Man Group is coming to the Mabee Center Friday, November 10. Come to our KIA dealership at 4747 S. Yale for tickets for this entertaining group. It will be a fun time!
Chuck Cissel is bringing the Big Easy sound of Irving Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz orchestra to the Brady Theater on Friday, Nov. 1. Make plans to attend! I’m proud to be a sponsor for the event, and I hear there will be an authentic New Orleans native as the master of ceremonies!

Restaurant News
Michael Fusco will be moving to a new location in January. The founder of Flavors restaurant will open Michael Fusco’s Riverside Grill at the King’s Landing, which is located near the Creek Expressway and Riverside Parkway in south Tulsa on the Tulsa bank of the Arkansas River across from the Oklahoma Aquarium. Michael is a world-class chef, and the people of greater Tulsa will love the new place.
Ed Richard has moved from the Plaza shopping center to his own building on 71st Street across from the Marriott Southern Hills Hotel. For the best in area Cajun cooking, go see Ed, my home-pal from Louisiana. Like me, he will love to talk about the New Orleans Saints and his delicious Cajun cooking. And try the turduckin. What a dish!
