Event Description

Susan Hannon is looking for bird photographs for a display at the library. See her email below. 

__________________

Hi all: I have been asked by the SSI Library to put together a display on the birds of SSI in the display cabinet in the entrance foyer. As part of that I would like to include some beautiful pictures of birds, hence my email to you. Below I have a list of those I want to include. Can you let me know if you have any of them? I would probably want them digitally so I can resize to fit the space. I will include photo credits. I can’t use all of these but am putting out a larger list to see what people have. Is there someone else who has lots of bird pictures on the island? Many thanks.

Susan

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
