River and Prairie Storyweavers (RAPS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) group of storytellers located in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. The mission of RAPS is to support the art of oral storytelling and the people who practice this art.
Gary tells a mixture of stories: folk, classic, personal, humorous, drama, and tall tales. All of his stories are 100%, completely, absolutely, positively, true – at least while he tells them. He is a past winner of the Kansas Storytelling Festival Tall Tales Contest and was second at the Missouri Liars Contest.
