September Hanging at the Deli at GVM.

Just kind of a final reminder that we will be hanging the show at 7:00 PM Saturday (Aug. 31), I need a little help though because I have tried to contact Gregor Alan who is doing the one man show and I have not gotten any response from the e-mails I have sent. Can someone help me get in touch with him please?


Thank You, Cliff

Transparacy slides to DVD

Is anyone set up to convert 100 slides to digital and onto a DVD?

A person who helps at our home would like this done without having to make two ferry trips to Duncan Walmart.  Walmart charges $18 for this yet keeps the slides for a few days and does the work "at night".

Thanks Curt

GVM Deli Exhibit update.

As previously stated, Gregor Alan has reserved the month of September for a "one Man" show so that leaves the month of November to still be scheduled for the remainder of the year. No one has yet come forward but we still have many weeks before that time. I am just reminding everyone that that time is available  and requesting interested parties to contact me byt the first of October, please.

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.
