TIME OF MEETING - The executive has suggested that, in the future, we start our regular meetings at 7:00pm. There will be a vote on this at the September meeting.

ANNUAL BANQUET - Do you prefer that it be held at lunch or dinner time? There will be a vote at the meeting.

IT'S IN THE BAG - Girl and Boy Scouts must be 'always prepared'---but so is the "Well-Prepared Videographer." Bring in your camcorder bag and we'll check out the contents. Who is prepared to weather the storms of video-making and who might get wet. Based on the discussion, a handout of "Recommended Accessories" will be produced---to make sure we are prepared for all types of weather, er, events.

THE NEW CLUB CONTEST's deadline is the September 27 meeting. In this contest, you may use video generated by your computer. None of the footage needs to be shot by you. Entries may be on any topic but may be no longer than ten minutes in length.

THE 'SONG TITLE' CONTEST - deadline is the October 25 meeting. In this contest, you are to produce a video based on the words of a song of your choice. Your entries may be up to six minutes long.
