|Max Conrad Famous Local Aviator|
At the time I had a website about Max Conrad which helped me get access to many photos from relatives of Max and other people that knew him. In Winona MN where I live this man was a hero and when I showed the video at the History Center it was the biggest crowd they ever had for a noon presentation. I would get requests to show this video in front of several groups. The website http://www.maxconrad.com I would turn over to the Conrad family.
After this I created a video about the Mayo Buildings in Rochester which is my hometown, a video about my father's business Champall Manufacturing, and one about local restaurants. Another presentation was a Power Point on the local railroads which a friend Bob Rydman did much of the on work. This was very popular too but I had someone else do the talking because my knowledge of local railroads was not that extensive.

It was fun doing these projects and presenting in front of different groups. The subject matter was normally of local interest but that made it rather unique. Besides the History Center I would normally present at local senior center and nursing homes. Before showing the video I would talk for a few minutes and after the video answer questions. This was good for me to get the experience talking in front of large groups. I would like to do more of this but for all the effort to create one video normally less than 200 people will ever see it. I turned my efforts after that to create short YouTube videos that thousands of people would see for some videos, I do miss the more personal contact.
