NEXT MEETING: March 14, 2014
To Air is Human – Video Production in the age of the Drone
Charles Anderson and his company, Epicycle Media, produce video for businesses. One of the most exciting technologies developing right now is the use of UAVs – unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) for video production. While the FAA is working on regulations to govern the commercial use of UAVs, Epicycle Media is ramping up to be ready for full-scale production services. Charles promises that his presentation will be fascinating and fun, and he’ll have some very interesting props. (Pun intended.)
• On March 30th opportunity to raise $1,000.00 at Golden Gate Fields. Need volunteers.
• Field Trip for March 21st meeting at Chevron Refinery, where we’ll combine a tour of the plant with our regular meeting.
MEETING OF March 7, 2014

Visiting Rotarians and Guests
Jeff Mulvihill, our perennial guest from Redding Rotary Club. We also welcomed Tim Chambers, Beatriz Portillo, Patricia Torres, Peter Hall, Giselle Carino and Nikki Basas, all of Salesians High School.
Recognitions and Happy/Sad Dollars
Because of the speech contest, we did not conduct Recognitions and Happy and Sad Dollars today.
This man went to his Rabbi and said, “I’m very troubled by my son. He went away and he came back a Christian.”
The Rabbi said, “You know, it’s funny you say that. My son, too, left home and came back a Christian.”
They decided to pray about it, and God said, “You know, it’s funny you say that…”
Today Richmond Rotarians became both judges and audience for the Rotary 4-Way Speech Contest. The competitors were Salesian High School students Peter Hall, Giselle Carino and Nikki Basas. Each delivered a 5-7 minute speech applying the ideas and principles of the Rotary 4-Way Test to the theme: “What’s Life Without Adventure?”
Tom Waller introduced the process and the 5 judges: David Brown, Alan Blavins, Herb Cole, Jeff Mulvihill and Linda Young (wife of Jim Young). After each student spoke the judges left the room to deliberate. In their absence the other visiting members of the Interact Club spoke about their programs and projects.
The judges returned and Tom Waller announced the results and presented prizes. The second runner-up was Peter Hall. The first runner-up was Giselle Carino. The winning speaker was Nikki Basas. Congratulations to all!
