Anyone up for a field trip to the BC Museum in Victoria and the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" exhibition that's running until April 6? We can add lunch and a side bar of some photography of our own, maybe walking the Galloping Goose trail or ...?
There were over 30 members attending the January meeting, with several new faces in the crowd (none of whose names I got. Welcome anyway!)
Chris Dixon ably chaired the meeting in his new post as Vice President, in Curt's absence.

If I can find this funny when I have at least 50,000 images on my computer and hard drive, I'm assuming you all will, too.
A lovely nurse at Greenwoods has a 12 year old son who does not do well in school but loves photography. She is willing to pay for some lessons in the basics to support him in his interest. Is anyone interested?
If so, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be go-between.
Opening remarks: Bob Rogers chaired the meeting ably in Curt's absence. He led a discussion on how members chose to approach Jonesie's challenge to try something out of their comfort zone.

Old Business: There is information now posted on site about the Miksang workshop running Jan. 12 and 13. All members interested in attending need to give a deposit…Continue

I was thinking on the way home from the meeting last night about ways to attract new members to the group, or just to get people to read my info sheet, and decided that some interesting statistics could help. What I need to know is;
How many are in the club now?
How old is our oldest member....and on the other end of the spectrum, how old are you, James?
How many years have you each been involved with photography, and as a really rough estimate,…Continue
