Hosted by Columbia Basin Badger Club -
The Tri-Cities regional area development and history is a unique story. Where the community came from and where the community is headed is explored in the TED-style Badger Club Meeting. Three ideas will be presented by three different speakers.

  • A recording of Becca Lingley’s TEDxRichland talk "Overcoming Tri-Cities' Historical Bias" will discuss a chapter that is unfortunately not so unique to the Tri-Cities - that of racial separation and cultural bias. 
  • Adam Brault will present his TEDxRichland talk, "The Suburbs Are Broken — Let's Upgrade the OS!" live. Brault will encourage us to challenge the idea of siloed suburbs within Tri-Cities and beyond. 
  • A third TED talk from the global collection will be shown to explore how we can connect on a global level. We will be sharing this topic via Ted Talks, one locally produced on this topic specific to the Tri-Cities, the other live and finally one from a national perspective.

Randle McMurphy’s first mistake was agreeing to take an insanity plea and do a stint in the mental hospital versus a jail sentence. His second mistake was bringing his larger than life personality into the icy, rule abiding world of Nurse Ratched. The nurse doesn’t appreciate McMurphy’s humor or attitude - especially when he starts riling up her other patients. The patients adore him for bringing them out of themselves and into the world.


A battle of wills and regulations ensue as Nurse Ratched wields her authority in an effort to break McMurphy’s rebellious spirit. The confrontation climaxes when McMurphy goes too far to prove who has the real power. Tragedy befalls him as result and the other men in the ward act to free him and themselves.
