Sounds like you under-estimated your performance, Clint.

Good job

Subject: [amsat-bb] Presentation Feedback

I gave my presentation to a club back on September 3. They'll remain  
nameless - it doesn't matter who they were. At times during the show,  
I felt like Rodney Dangerfield - it was a rough crowd. I know my  
timing was a little "off" due to my wife's recovering from an  
emergency medical problem. But we did work AO-51 from the parking lot  
right before the meeting ... I had my club-specific trivia questions  
all prepared ... the presentation SHOULD have gone well ...

Well, I just chalked it up to the law o' averages. I mean, Give the  
presentation, say, ten times, and there'll be one group that isn't as  
receptive as they should be (grin).

I forgot about that night - until I received the email reprinted below  
last night. I am almost ashamed to post this. In my mind, I thought I  
had somehow failed the group. This post is not to glorify me and what  
I am doing - I mean it to be a "keep working at spreading the gospel  
of AMSAT" to all of us - no matter what silly little setbacks may occur.

Hello Clint

Thanks for the great AMSAT presentation at our club on 3 Sept. 09. And  
the demonstration of tracking and working an amateur satellite was  
very spectacular. The members are still talking about it. I hope you  
continue to give this lecture to various groups, it is one of the most  
viable ones that I have seen.

I made a dvd of your lecture and finally got it completed. Graphics on  
the top thanks to my son Eddie, our resident computer graphics person.  
I would like to send you a copy and was wondering if you were ok in  
QRZ at : 5085 Trail Canyon Drive, Mira Loma, Ca. 91752-1685   ? If  
this is ok, then i will mail it to you.  Thanks again.
