Water will be available in the room, but your other beverages must be self bought and brought in.

We'll start the evening's slide program around 9:00 pm. Saturday and Sunday evenings we will try to kick off around 8:00 pm.

To receive your ticket please contact us by e-mail, phone, or letter as soon as possible, at which time your ticket will be issued.
You will need to present your ticket during the registration process at our meeting Friday night where the attendance fee will be collected and the roster of presenters is determined. If you are traveling with other potential attendees, you will need to respond for them, in case they are not on our contact list. As well, we need to know whether your program will be slide or digital.
For digital presenters we have a successful format that your program must meet so it is compatible with our equipment. Those standards are the same as last year and are posted for your review. No exceptions will be made.
Your order of registration determines your position in the program for Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Please limit your presentations to NO MORE THAN 30 ORIGINAL SLIDES or DIGITAL IMAGES. Once we have finished a cycle of presenters for that evening we will start a new one.
For those of us old enough to remember, three years ago we started a "where were you 30+ years ago," allowing those old slides to be dusted off and shown again to much delight. So if you have 'em please include some in your program.
Any questions? Call or contact us.
