Unannouned Photo Shoot tomorrow, July 22, 2013

Pat Page and I are going to the raptor center in Duncan after the coffee at Harbor House tomorrow morning. Past efforts to organize a regularly scheduled trip there were not successful but Pat and I decided we wanted to do it NOW so anyone that would like to come along is surely invited. It involves ferry fare and the admiission fee for the Park ($14.00). We are planning to take the 11:20 or 12:25 ferry from Vesuvius and I am  taking my larger car and will have two extra seats if…

GVM Deli Hanging Correction

Somehow the information that the Country Grocer Hanging schedule lasts until 9:00 PM on the last day of the month Is printed in the right hand column of these  Blogs. I don't know how that got printed  because every time we hang it is normally for one month and on the last day of the month we take the exhibit down at 7:00 PM and I would ask that whoever prints the schedules on the right side of this page to change the scheduling for that showing to that the scheduling for hanging is from 7…

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

Anna McColm

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.
