Entrepreneurs to talk travel in Incline Village on Sunday

Terry Jones, founder of, and Frederick Marx, the filmmaker behind “Hoop Dreams” will share insights in a lecture entitled “19th Century Travel and 21st Century Travelers” in Incline Village this weekend.

Jones will “focus on how 21st century technology can get savvy travelers the best deals online by knowing the perfect time to book airline seats, how to score hotel upgrades and who to call for the best travel advice,” according to a press release from organizers.

Marx will talk about his newest film, “Journey of Zanskar: A Monk’s Vow to Children.” The film “follows the struggle of a Himalayan village in Zanskar, one of the most remote places on earth, to protect its traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture as the outside world begins to close in,” according to the release.

There is a private cocktail party and a meet-and-greet with the speakers at 3:30 p.m. Doors open at the college at 5 p.m. for an opportunity to preview silent auction and raffle items. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar are available. The lecture begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by an exclusive dinner hosted at a lakeview home. Tickets for the lecture are $5 for students with ID, $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets for the private cocktail party, lecture and dinner are $250 per person.
