Topaz

An advert came up that Topazlabs.com has a sale on for the next 14 days.  They must have heard the discussion on Zoom tonight!  I won't post the link because it was on FB.

UPDATE:  Apparently this is a reported problem with Zoom in that it does share content with Facebook & others.

Restart meetings

Pierre,

I would like to restart meetings.  I say that without knowing:

1. With social distancing of 2 metres, what is the capacity of the Harbour House room?

2. What is the normal attendance at a club meeting?

I miss seeing fellow club members, the educational programs and the monthly themed slide show.

I am willing to assist helping arrange the room with proper social distancing and with putting chairs away.  I am also alright with wearing a mask…

October meeting minutes

Pierre was away in Washington DC talking to Congress -  about ecology, we think. Avril hosted the meeting with her usual grace and humour.

The Club members who were present thanked Judy, Ross and Kahsia for all the hard work they put into the Fall Fair photography section.  Kahsia, in turn, thanked all the club volunteers who helped over the weekend. It was very successful and had more photo entries than other years. Simon was one of the judges, putting in 10 hours at least, and many…

She has been on the Island for 8 days and is married to the new minister of the United Church.

Minutes for May meeting

Shows:   Bernadette is showing mixed media work about the clear-cut logging that happened last year near Beddis Road, a subject close to her heart.

A bench to commemorate Bob Rogers was installed on the dock by the float plane shelter in Ganges. A small ceremony took place on the dock on Saturday and Photoclub members and Bob's uncle ate and drank and took photos of each other sitting on the bench. This bench will be much enjoyed by people who can now wait for their plane…

A bench for Bob

Bob Rogers' family wanted a memorial bench to be installed somewhere on Salt Spring. The perfect spot has been found, down on the dock in Ganges where the sea-planes come and go. Bob used to love taking photos of these planes and now fellow photographers and travellers will have a place to sit in the sun while waiting for their plane ride or contemplating the perfect shot. Wendy has, of course, been instrumental in making this happen and it is going to be installed today, Thursday 9th, at…
