I guess this is probably a stupid question, but might this presentation or any others like this be recorded? It sounds really interesting but as I'm on the other side of the country I doubt I'll be able to attend. Of course, I do have a club near-ish me but a nearly hour and a half round trip on a week night just isn't possible.

I'm wondering if maybe that has been considered. A way to draw in others, especially younger crowds, those who work late, or those with young children. Record these and post them up on the personal club website with the hope it could help draw in new blood and provide a way to view the presentation to other members who weren't able to attend. I'm sure there's a host of reasons this won't work, be it copyright issues, technological issues, and especially the added responsibility of an individual but if these issues could be overcome it might be a neat feature, a way to modernize and draw in others.

Of course I'm just rambling at this point... Sounds like a great presentation and I wish you luck!
