    - Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada. 65th annual. The NBA All-Star Game is held outside the United States for the first time in its history when squads representing the Eastern and Western Conference tip off at the home of the Toronto Raptors. The All-Star weekend kicks off Feb 12th with the Sprint All-Star Celebrity Game and the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. Est attendance 100,000.

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

    EVENT INFORMATION

    REBATE DEADLINE: Jan. 5

    This is the 45-day deadline by which rebate entries must be entered online and payment received. Additional restrictions apply. Refer to the rebate form for more information.

    GENERAL DEADLINE: January 29

    This is the final 21-day deadline by which all entries must be submitted online and paid-in-full.

    ANTICIPATED SCHEDULE POSTING: February 9

    Each show is scheduled independently based on the number of acts and how those acts break down among solos, duet/trios and groups. There is no such thing as a “standard” schedule. It is therefore virtually impossible to even guess when any act or group of acts will perform prior to schedule posting. It is also generally very difficult to accommodate individual schedule requests given that multiple such requests almost always conflict with one another. Also, making assumptions about the schedule based on a prior year’s schedule is not recommended. A general schedule will be posted here immediately as it becomes available. Immediately thereafter a specific schedule with individual performance times for each act will be emailed to each studio.

    Event Description:
    *You can choose to register for the entire series when you register for this event.

    Are you driving your business, or is it driving you?

    It's unfortunate that most business owners end up being driven by their businesses rather than the other way around. In fact, instead of directing their businesses, they simply find themselves having a job.

    Here's another shocking statistic; less than one in every 100 business owners will ever create the wealth, lifestyle or level of success they are after.

    Do you want your business to be the one that bucks the trend, or will it end up being left languishing with the other 99 that are continually struggling to get ahead?

    This Four Part Series will build a strong foundation for sustainable business success around ALL the key fundamentals of running a business.

    During the series you'll learn how to:
    •Achieve more by improving your priority setting and time management skills
    •Define your unique selling proposition and turn it into a powerful, competitive weapon
    •Dramatically increase your lead generation and conversion skills
    •Develop loyal, profitable customers who keep coming back
    •Differentiate between cash flow and profit margin.
    •Create systems that allow the business to run without you
    •How to work ON your business instead of IN your business
    •How to recruit, motivate, educate, and retain exceptional employees

    Who should enroll in the B3 - Leaders Series?
    •Business owners
    •Independent operators
    •Start Up business owners
    •Franchisees

    •To eliminate chaos thru mastery.
    •How to have predictable cash flow.
    •How to increase your efficiency.
    •Manage your team for maximum growth.
    •How to create synergy within your business.
    •To create passive income and have the results you always dreamed of.
    It's said, "Your business is either growing or it's dying..."

    In business, just as in life, you can't stand still. You're either getting ahead and growing or you're in a downward terminal spiral. Just look at the statistics, which indicate around 80% of all new businesses will fail within the first few years.

    The key to long-term, sustainable profitability is to focus on the direction you want your business to move in and then to gather momentum to begin the journey. There simply is no alternative if you're serious about remaining in business.

    Carl Casper is a name that is synonymous with car shows and his longest-running event, the Carl Casper Custom Car Carl and a fanShow in Louisville, Kentucky celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2002. To mark this milestone, Casper brought out many of the show cars he built over the years including the 1965 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, complete with its hand-formed body, twin-blown ’57 Pontiac motor and custom-fade paint scheme. Also on the floor were other show car icons, such as the Pinball Wizard and the Paddy Wagon. Add all the movie cars that Casper has built, such as the Bat Mobile, the A-Team vehicles, K.I.T.T. and the General Lee, and it was an impressive showing. Since Casper is one of the few people to keep every car he ever built, he added to the display with no less than three Top Fuel cars he built during the 1970s. These cars were strong runners with track records to their credits and bragging rights such as knocking out Don Garlits in three out of four of their meetings. Of course, the tribute to Casper’s cars was only a portion of the show. The real meat of the show consisted of hundreds of fine automobiles of every description from all over the US and surrounding area. The show fills the huge Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville Kentucky and car enthusiasts can spend a full day at the show attempting to take it all in. Many clubs use the show as a winter outing and a chance to have an indoor rod run and three days of hanging out and talking cars. Every February the Carl Casper Auto Show will be back and ready to entertain the Louisville and Southern Indiana audience with 3 days of Stars and action packed fun.
