Presenters

Information for Presenters:

Address: The HTMC clubhouse is located in a residential neighborhood in Waimanalo (a block from the beach) The address is: 41-023 Puuone Street.

Parking: Please park in front of the property along the fence on the street in the grassy area.

Venue: Weather permitting, the presentations take place outside on a grassy lawn on the expansive clubhouse property.  We set up chairs and the screen and projector and have an area for the presenter to sit/stand. There is a beautiful recently renovated indoor space on the second floor of the historic clubhouse if needed.

Arrival time: Someone from the HTMC Entertainment Committee arrives early to set up, sometime between 4-4:30pm. We leave it up to each presenter what time they would like to arrive. That said, please arrive with enough time to test the equipment before the presentation begins.

Timing: The presentations start once the sun sets and it gets dark enough, this ranges between 6:30 pm in winter and 7:15 in the summer.

Dates: Events are held on Saturdays and planned quarterly months in advance in order to be included in the quarterly newsletter that is sent to over 500 HTMC members.

Technical side: HTMC provides a screen/projector and cables for PC/Mac laptop hook ups (if you need to borrow a laptop, let us know and one may be available)

Sound: Our great sound/microphone is usually provided by our awesome HTMC member and  volunteer Bob Tyson. If sound is important for your presentation, please let me know and I will confirm with you if sound is available for your event.

Potluck: Although the event officially starts at 5pm, people trickle in and visit first, so we start eating around 5:30-5:45 pm once enough people have come. It is a potluck, but do not feel obligated to bring anything, as you are the entertainment! Some people skip the potluck altogether and just come for the presentation.

Guests: Keep in mind that this event is open to the public and guests are welcome. We encourage presenters to bring their family and friends! The more the merrier! There is a requested $3 clubhouse usage donation for all non-members that helps with the upkeep of the facility.
