It’s your turn!

Date: Thursday, December 15, 2015 (doors open 6:45 pm, program begins at 7:30 pm)

Location: Duck Club, Irvine (Directions)

Back at the Duck Club, we turn the mike and screen over to you, the audience. This is your chance to share a favorite flower, voyage, or habitat—locally or anywhere else in the world. The only rule is 5 minutes so that everyone gets a turn and we get home before midnight. Look back through the year’s adventures and prepare for your FIVE minutes of fame!

Our tech master says: “Please use presentation software such as Keynote or PowerPoint to place your photos onto separate slides, then position, resize, sequence, & add transitions. We prefer *not* to have individual photos, but if you can’t do that, send them in a standard digital format—.jpg, .png, or .psd. Videos must be in standard video format: .mov (preferred), .mpeg (ok), .avi (discouraged), .wmv (discouraged), but *no* .exe, Windows people. We don’t use speakers, so please do *not* add sound. Keep your presentation to a maximum of about 20 slides or 5 minutes. We provide the computer; bring in your presentation on a flash drive, portable hard drive, CD, or DVD. Windows users: no autoexec (.exe) files of any kind. Please arrive a little early, so we can copy your presentation to the main projecting device.”

Following a long-standing tradition, board members will provide a festive spread on the hospitality table. If you’d like to share something tasty, you are welcome to bring it.
