Clubs are encouraged to promote the conference with performances documented on video and presented at District Governor Bruce Azevedo's official club visit. The performance can be in the form of a skit, song or whatever your club wants. Capture it with a cell phone video. (It doesn't have to be professionally done). The performance shouldn't exceed two minutes and will be judged in the following categories:
  1. Appearance and stage presence; Use of costumes and props.
  2. Overall creativity
  3. Crowd appeal and audience response
The award for the BEST CLUB PERFORMANCE will be presented at the Rolling on the River District Conference.  Submit your video to Tammy Gilland, Rolling on the River PR Chair.
