Thinking back to the magic that was Ignite Sault 3.  90 people tuned in to the live stream and nearly 100 participants packed the place, twice the size of previous Ignites.

A bright future

How satisfying to see so many who signed up to help with the next Ignite (set for October 14, 2010! Mark your calendars!) and to launch ChangeCamp Sault. The Ignite team doubled in size, and ChangeCamp is already in double digits.

Let us know if you’d like to get involved with either Ignite or ChangeCamp. The Ignite team will be looking back and forging ahead, over Indian food on April 21. The ChangeCamp team will hold its first organizing meeting some time next week (week of April 18).

We’ve also got pictures.  Check out the slideshow below.

Online registration for Ignite Sault 3 closes at 4 p.m.  Didn’t register or know a friend who wants to go but didn’t register? No problem! Just sign in at the front door tonight at The Grand Theatre 7 pm.

For those who can’t make it we’ll have a live stream going.

Ignite Sault 3 is going to be a lot of fun and we wanted to mention some more community support and prizes we’ve received.

Sault Personal Fit has generously donated two healthy dinners to be won at Ignite Sault 3.

Kate & Allie’s Beauty by Nature has donated a gift basket of soap.

Indian Food Sault Ste. Marie has donated a gift certificate.

We truly appreciate the support of these local small businesses!

We’d also like to mention that there will be a cash bar at The Grand tonight and Loplops is right next door for those of you looking to get a drink afterwards (tonight is Loplops first female singer-songwriter night so it should be good!).

Finally, our presenters have been working hard perfecting their talks.  We got a sneak peek at the technical run-through on Monday night and things are looking good!

Can’t wait for tonight!

Lou at Ignite Sault 3's tech runthrough

Lou's not presenting but he was at the tech run through on Monday night helping with the set up. Here he is checking out the spotlight and the screen.

Rick prepares some cue cards

Each presenter has a different methodology. Some go up with detailed notes. Some speak with no notes. Rick's doing a little of both. One word cues on flashcards, just in case. 🙂

Have you ever wondered what the Ignite Sault experience was like from the presenter’s point of view?

We recently sat down with Dave Brodbeck to find out.  Dave presented a talk titled “Evolution; So simple anyone can misunderstand it” at Ignite Sault 2.

Watch the video below to find out how Dave heard about Ignite, how he chose his topic, why he picked that title and for his advice to this round of presenters!

If you missed Dave’s talk the first time around you can see it here:

Don’t forget! Ignite Sault 3 is tonight at 7p.m. at The Grand Theatre. This is your chance to see a new set of talks live! Can’t make it to the event? We’ll be live streaming it live right here!
