8 Dec 2017 – Members’ Presentation Night – What’s your story?

It’s a tradition of the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club that the December general meeting is set aside for club members to make a short presentation on a topic of their choice.  Of course there is no obligation to get up in front to tell a story, show some photos or even sing a song about some aspect of natural history from a local area or further afield.  But it is encouraged, and the audience is very supportive.

A projector and laptop will be available for those that want to show photos or a powerpoint display.  To allow as many people as possible the opportunity to give their presentation, there is a maximum of 7 minutes per person.  If you have a computer-based presentation, it is also preferable if you get there early to make sure that it all works OK.

If you don’t wish to get up in front of everyone, all members and supporters are encouraged to come along to listen, and to join us for a chat over supper  afterwards.  Bring along a plate of food to share, and help us celebrate the conclusion of another successful year for the club.

The evening commences from 7.30pm on Friday 8th December 2017 in the Chapel behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St, Castlemaine (next door to the Castlemaine Art Gallery).  The UC Parish has a dinner in the hall that night, so we cannot use our usual venue.

If you’ve got a bigger story to tell, why not also consider being one of our guest presenters in 2017.  We are on the lookout for people to be a monthly speaker – and are particularly encouraging of members and locals.  Contact the club at castlemainefnc@hotmail.com if you are interested – or if you know someone else who might be interested.

  1. Whoops. This blog was earlier sent out with the date of the 12 December in the title. I can confirm that the correct date of the Members Night is Friday 8th December. Apologies for the confusion. Chris
