The King and Queen of the 41st annual Moscow Renaissance Fair are John Crock and Laurene Sorensen. John is the founder of Hyperspud Sports, and for 30 years has inspired others to have big adventures in the backcountry and around the world. He has supported local nonprofits and student groups by donating gear and apparel to hundreds of silent auctions and fundraisers. Though he has climbed in the Alps, Andes, and Yukon, teaching climbing at Pullman’s Fifth Grade Camp is his (and Laurene’s) favorite outdoor experience. He is also a skilled potter and craftsman and has a PhD in biochemistry.

According to the sign on her office door, Laurene is a lawyer and mediator – a.k.a. life coach, management consultant, counselor, facilitator, advocate, and teacher. She has served on the boards of several nonprofits here and on the East Coast, and currently serves the 1912 Center. In her off hours, she teaches and studies yoga, slacklining, and acrobatics.

John and Laurene are world travelers, multi-sport athletes, and independent business owners. Their farm at the base of Moscow Mountain features spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountain majesty, and a fruited plain fertilized by sheep, chickens, and Albert the goat. They value the Palouse’s natural beauty and Moscow’s strong sense of community, and have been proud to serve both with their time, talents, and treasure. They are deeply grateful for the community’s love and support during John’s ongoing battle with melanoma, a highly aggressive form of cancer.
Congratulations to Janet Day of Chattaroy for the artwork for the poster and program cover!
