||[15 May 10]*** Richard attends the
2010 Cabo Celebrity Golf Classic charity golf tournament ***
joined a host of Hollywood celebrities on hand in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,
for the 2010 Cabo Celebrity Golf Classic, which took place at Casa
Dorada and the Palmilla Golf Club and ran from April 22nd - 25th.
The December 30th event press release had this to say regarding the
Cabo Celebrity Golf Classic:
Bill Pollock, Chairman and Founder of NIP, Inc. announced today that
it will sponsor the 2010 Cabo Celebrity Golf Classic on April 22-25, 2010
at the internationally acclaimed One & Only Palmilla Resort and Golf
Club in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The fundraiser will benefit the Casa Hogar
Orphanage in Los Cabos, which opened in February, 2008 and is currently
home to 20 boys, ages 6-14. The golf invitational will pair celebrities
[professional athletes, actors and artists] with amateurs for two rounds
of competitive golf with a tournament playoff featuring the top five teams
competing for The Cabo Cup.
In addition to the golf tournament, the long weekend includes two nights
of great live music, a live auction and a chance to meet and greet the
kids at Casa Hogar. Los Angeles based The Zaring Group, one of this country’s
top event consulting firms, will, again, produce the event.
Actor Brett Cullen, who was on the winning team at the 2009 Cabo Cup
tournament, comments on the event, “Last year my wife and I were invited
to Mexico to play in a charity golf tournament in Cabo San Lucas by our
friends John and Bianca Zaring. We witnessed something that truly made
a difference in the lives of 20 children living there at the Casa Hogar
Orphanage. Cabo San Lucas has been blessed with the Cabo Celebrity Golf
Classic to help raise funds for the Casa Hogar Orphanage where these 20
little boys reside. Having attended this fun, heart-warming event last
year, we cannot wait to go back and be involved again this year. There
is no doubt in our mind that this event has changed conditions for these
boys. By supporting this cause, the CCGC is helping to reverse this tragic
situation that no child should ever experience. We were moved by it and
we can't wait to go back again this year. We wouldn’t miss it!”
While Richard's team did not Place in either the Friday or Saturday
tournaments, he enjoyed himself immensely and described the event as having
been a "blast."

||[185 May 10]*** Richard returns
to Sofia, Bulgaria to shoot new SyFy Saturday movie ***-- Richard is
currently in Bulgaria working on "Super Eruption" for SyFy.
He is joined by Juliet Aubrey (Helen Cutter of BBC's "Primeval")
in the mega-disaster epic, with Matt Codd ("Epoch," Shark Hunter," "Dragon
Dynasty") at the helm as director.
Set in Yellowstone National Park, "Super Eruption" revolves around
an eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano and inevitable horrific high-stakes
aftermath. Richard plays a Yellowstone firefighter who teams with Aubrey's
vulcanologist to try to save lives -- in some ways, not unlike his role
in "Firestorm: Last Stand at Yellowstone," in which he played a Yellowstone
firefighter battling a voracious inferno.
The film is intended for SyFy's Saturday night movie lineup and, given
post-production requirements of effects-heavy films, will most likely premiere
in late 2010 or 2011.

||[15 May 10] *** Catch Richard Burgi
on SyFy when "Hostel: Part II" plays May 16th and 27th***
Richard worked in Prague, Czech Republic in late October 2006 on the much-anticipated
sequel to writer-director
horror blockbuster, "Hostel."
Eli Roth gave MTV.com some teasing details on "Hostel: Part II,"
including an idea of how Richard's character Todd Rogers and his
Stuart (Roger Bart) McGenty fit into the overall story.
"The film is also following two guys who go through this experience
to kill somebody. And we know them really well, and they are very, very
likeable and they're very normal. It seems like there's nothing psycho
about them, except they are looking for some excitement in their life because
they are bored. ... That's going to be a parallel story. We see it
from the girl's perspective and we see it from the client's perspective.
We inter-cut both stories until they all meet in this horrible place. So,
we're going to learn everything about the organization, all the minutiae

White House. When a pretty young campaign volunteer is slain in an assassination
attempt apparently aimed at him, Brooks is grilled by Lightman about the
incident. However, Brooks just may be what he seems, namely, an honest
and conscientious man who had no knowledge of the crime. But Brooks also
may have deliberately blinded himself to the sleazy and unpleasant shenanigans
right under his nose, and when he's finally forced to face the truth, it's
a shattering revelation..."

Sandburg (Garett Maggart), whose chosen field of research is "Sentinels"
-- people with such enhanced senses -- has the answers Ellison needs to
control and work with his powerful and unpredictable abilities. Ellison's
long-suffering captain, Simon Banks (Bruce A. Young) helps Ellison
and Sandburg make the most of Ellison's sensory advantage by watching their
backs and keeping their extrasensory escapades under the radar as much

little boy from his past named Arthur waiting patiently for him in his

sending cards or letters to him to use the RBFC mailing address, which
is listed below. This allows Richard to better handle
his incoming mail, which he certainly enjoys receiving, provided it comes
through appropriate channels.

We cannot emphasize strongly enough that mail should not be
sent to Richard's home address! Receiving fan mail through his
home address is a disquieting experience and cause for concern, especially
from the standpoint of privacy and safety. If you have come across
what you believe may be his home address, please, do NOT use it! We
-- and Richard -- would greatly appreciate it if you would let us
know where you came across the address by using this e-mail
link to the RBFC.
While postcards, letters, and cards will be promptly forwarded
to Richard, we cannot forward packages; he has asked that no gifts
be sent to him. Though Richard appreciates the goodwill and generosity
those gifts represent, he finds them a little overwhelming. Richard
would be honored if, instead, wellwishers made a donation in his name to
a local children's shelter or literacy program, or to the Pacific
Marine Mammal Center.
