Eastern District is hosting an A-MFR course in Durham Region on Fri Nov 14 to Sun Nov 16 and Fri Nov 21 to Sun Nov 23. We have been unsuccessful in locating a projector to run the power point presentations for this course. If anyone has any idea where we can borrow one (or rent one for a SMALL fee), please contact me immediately! Thanks!

Because these LCD projectors retail for between $3k and $5k, and their illuminating bulb costs $150, it might be difficult to 'borrow' one. They are also somewhat fragile.

An alternative setup that will work for a group of less than, say 8-10 is that you use an external computer monitor that hooks into a laptop computer. You put the laptop computer and the external monitor 'back to back', and all 10 of you gather 'round like a campfire, 5 on the side of the laptop and 5 on the side of the monitor.

Though a little cosy, it's easily done (any home pc monitor can be used) quick, reliable, and won't cost you any additional expense.

Another cheap alternative is getting an AverKey. It allows you to plug your computer into a TV for display. Although, you don't get anything close to resembling high resolution (a TV is 352x240 I believe compared to a MINIMUM of 640x480 on a projector)

I could likely obtain an Averkey for loan from my place or work if interested. Unlike projectors which are very expensive; an Averkey is less expensive and less likely to break while being loaned.

If you haven't looked lately, the projectors are now in the price range of $2500. 1200-1800 lumens. Very acceptable in brightness.

Canon, 3M, etc. All respectable brands. So maybe you can fund raise to get one. Hint: don't bother with small car washes or drives. Go to friends with rich business parents, companies that sponsors non-profit organizations, Lions' club type ones, pull in old-favors, etc.

You'd be amazed at how much fund raising you can do. :-)

Corporate contacts are in hand for this and other types of equipment. There are some plans to work on this in the near future. The projectors are an excellent presentation tool, that has become part of many sessions in cooperation with Ontario Council. Sadly, that equipment is in need of repair, and is less expensive to replace than repair.
