I enjoyed presenting at the last one Paul ... just relax and enjoy yourself ... (by the way ... wasn't even sent an invite/notification for this one !) Brian Cassey

Thanks Brian, I'm really looking forward to it. And I actually really enjoy giving presentations so I will be totally relaxed! That would be great to see you there tomorrow night if you can make it. There'll be a few local photographers there. Consider this your official invite. :)

Never miss a P/C night Paul!
The best $5 bang for buck in Cairns.

A useful tip.

In the hot seasons the TANKS ventilation is dire & its like an oven. I've seen a number of lads & lassies come off stage embarrassed, looking like someone has tipped a bucket of water over them.

However nervous tension probably plays a role here & I know you are a confident speaker. But take a small hand towel just in case.

With you & Dennis Walls on stage it augers to be a cracking night out.

Break a leg

ps
Thank you so much for teaching me The Five Point, Palm, Exploding Heart Technique.
I am sure it will come in very handy during a future photo-shoot.....one day.

Aha! Hand towel duly noted! I never would have thought of that. Cheers mate.
