Tech Talks are presentations by members on equipment, techniques, operating procedures, adventures, and any topic of interest to amateurs and others. Talks can be hands-on demonstrations, Power point presentations, or any other venue the presenter wishes. There is a projector screen in the meeting room.
Tech Talks begin following a short business meeting. We are always looking for new topics please contact
