Prairie Connection

The Chamber is pleased to announce “Prairie Connection” will be playing at the Chamber Banquet from 6pm-8pm.

Prairie Connection is a forty year old band that has evolved from the Taqua Judd band to the Gamma Rays and now to the Prairie Connection. This five piece group consists of some of Beloit’s most talented musicians – Josh Fuller (guitar, banjo and vocals), Dan Fleming (guitar and vocals), Linus Sarver (keyboard and vocals), Mike Harbaugh (fiddle) and Dr. David Neubert (bass and vocals). They perform an eclectic variety of Oldies but Goldies music including country, popular, folk, gospel and blue grass styles.


Ringneck Ranch
In the Winter edition of the “Pheasants Forever” Magazine, Ringneck Ranch was named one of the top 8 hunting destinations to add to your “bucket list”!


Chamber Annual Banquet


The Chamber Annual Banquet is set for February 3rd at Down Under!
Entertainment for the evening will be……Bryan Cork!

Laughter is the best medicine. Bryan has been doing his special form of healing for over twenty years now. This strange and unusual journey started for Bryan as an actor. For a dozen years he did appearances as the Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics. But alas, the demands of wearing spandex eventually took its toll. (You try wearing spandex when you are 35 and see how you look.) So his career took a new direction. A comedy door opened up, and Bryan crashed through it like he was running from the police.

Now he tours the country sharing his unique brand of clean humor and clever stories about deer hunting, tech support, and how Pictionary can ruin Thanksgiving. He will leave you, and your audience roaring with laughter. And Bryan claims scientific research has shown that his show will lower your cholesterol, whiten your teeth, and make your children anxious to help with chores around the house.

Tickets and table sponsorships are available. Call the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email to reserve yours today!
