distinguished guest speakers, Mister Mark Riccobono, President of the
National Federation of the Blind, and Doctor Marc Maurer, immediate past

several speakers and venders. At present, we are proud to have Art
Schreiber who will discuss his experiences as one of two American reporters
who travelled with the Beatles during their 1964 US/Canadian tour, and James
Gashel who will discuss the KNFB Reader for iPhones, . We are happy to also
have Dan Parker, blind motorcycle driver, who will tell us about his
adventures driving in the Bonneville Salt Flats.
