Render Issue: Black screen

I have a camera, and lighting. Object has a surface, camera is framed at object.
I rendered things in Blender before, so I am very perplexed as to what i have done wrong. I am sure its simple, but when I render I get empty space/ black screen.

Project is at
also attached here.

Any help or insights would be appreciated.

I am new to blender, trying to learn on a steep curve, but I am learning.

Thanks in advance for the help.

In the Object properties, you have activated Duplication for faces. Set that to None.


That did the trick.
