Pointe Royale Properties, Inc.

Coming up October 7, 8, & 9 is the Titanic Museum's 4th Annual World-Class Wood Carving Event & Competition.  You'll want to plan to be in Branson for this special, and unique event.  Competitors come from all across the country to compete in this 3 day event.  Admission is free, and you'll get considerably more than you pay for as you witness 1st hand the artists' process of taking a chunk of wood, carving, chiseling, chipping, and charing it into a breathtaking work of art.  If you enjoy the creative process from a specator's standpoint, or if you're looking for inspiration or ideas for a wood carving hobby for yourself, you have a great opportunity to watch these talented artisans in action.  The chips will definitely be flying!

 4th Annual Wood Carving Event

Things get under way Friday, October 7th, at 9am, and will continue till 4pm.  Same schedule is on tap for Saturday.  Then 9am to 3pm on Sunday.  There will be an auction of the wood carvings both Saturday and Sunday beginning at 4pm.  So you've got a great opportunity to pick up some beautiful art as a keepsake and display. 

Here's a link to a great blog by an atendee of last year's competition.  It's loaded with information and photos from 2010.  It has some wonderful photos of the event itself, and, more importantly, the amazing art that was produced at last year's event.  Breathtaking stuff.  Look for you in the sawdust Saturday!

Branson in the Fall

Ozarks Autumn

Autumn in the Ozarks is a beautiful time.  The hills in and around Branson are thickly forested, giving us so many picturesque views year round.  But autum in the Ozarks is especially lovely.  Add to that the fact that we have such a diverse array of trees gracing our Ozark landscape, trees which turn colors at differing times, and you get a fall foliage season that can last as long as 4-6 weeks, peaking in mid-October.  Our fall temperatures are very comfortable, and the October skies are usually blue and bright.  Below is a quick video from the Branson Chamber of Commerce featuring many of the joys of a Branson fall getaway.

Fall is a great time to enjoy the Ozarks outdoors, hiking, taking pictures, or just enjoying the great scenery and weather.  It's also a good time for all the live music that made and keeps making Branson famous.  This fall, Lee Greenwood & Louise Mandrell are performing right across the highway from Pointe Royale at the Welk Theatre.  The Gatlin Brothers, who can often be seen playing golf here at the Pointe, also make their way back to Branson this fall on Tuesdays-Thursdays over at the Mansion Theatre.  And special 1 or 2 night performances are scheduled this fall for Don Williams & Little Jimmie Dickins, Marty Stuart, Michael Bolton, Vicky Lawrence, and also Tim Conway & Friends.  Throw in the Harvest Festival at Silver Dollar City, and autumn in Branson is truly a must see.  So I hope to see you soon!

The Ironman Cometh | Branson Ironman 70.3

Seems like each & every morning, and some afternoons, I seem to pass cyclists & runners out there on the Ozarks roadways.  Either the percentage of Branson residants who cycle & run has gone up dramatically, or the Ironman is right around the corner.  (Which it is.)

Branson Ironman

This years Branson Ironman 70.3 is coming up this weekend, with the international event scheduled for Sunday, September 18th, with the actual start time for the race set for 7am.  Of course, there are events going on all weekend leading up to the race, including a welcome concert at 8pm on Friday at the Branson Landing, featuring the group, Chain Reaction.  The race itself begins Sunday morning with a 1.2 mile swim in Table Rock Lake, followed by a 56 mile bike ride primarily on the beautiful Ozark Mountain Highroad and Hwy 248, and finishing with a 13.1 mile run to the finish line at the Branson Landing.  Whew!  That sounds like a workout.

The Weekend concludes with the Awards Ceremony and Rollout at 4pm on Sunday.  It's always exciting to watch world class athletes compete.  But to have the chance to see them compete right in your back yard is something special.  This is the 2nd year for the race, and we in Branson would love to have it back each and every year.  Volunteers are still needed to help with running the event.  If you'd like to volunteer, contact Angie Zeller at bransonvolunteers@ironman.com.  Below is a list of some of what they still need:
