From Judy McPhee

To all photo club members and friends,

The Fall Fair dates this year are September 18th & 19th (Sat/Sun) and the theme is "Past, Present and Future... A Focus on Agriculture". Alane Lalonde is my co-coordinator this year and we both will be there all week setting up and all weekend monitoring the photography section. 

It would be great to get to help with receiving photos on the preceding Wednesday,  September 15th, in two time shifts, 3 - 5 and 5 - 7:30. (This year it does not conflict with the club’s meeting.) The duties are receiving photos from entrants and compiling them into categories - this works well in pairs so 4 people in all would be great. 

  • Wednesday September 15th 2 people per each of 2 2-hour shifts (4 people total)
    3 - 5
    5 - 7:30

Thursday September 16th we will need people to help hang photos This takes place during the day starting at 9 am. That evening the judges will be coming in to judge the photos which will probably go into Friday as well as they will be judging for trophies and awards plus commenting on each entry so it would be great to have it all hung by 3 o'clock.

  • Thursday September 16th, one or two people per each of 3 2-hour shifts (3-6 people total)
    9 - 11
    11 - 1
    1 - 3

This year we will have 4 x 8 foot black coroplast sheets against the walls and adhere photos with painters tape. There will be a couple tables in the middle of the space with a display of the theme of the fair and info table for the volunteers to sit at. People will come in the door from outside into the building where the photography is set up and walk in one direction, make a big circle and leave through the same door. More will be discussed on this later. Each section at the fair will have their own entrances. (Masks only if mandatory).

  • Saturday September 18th Shifts for monitoring, five 1-1/2 hour shifts one person per shift
  • 11 - 12:30
    12:30 - 2
    2 - 3:30
    3:30 - 5
    5 - 6
  • Sunday September 19th 
    9 - 10:30
    10:30 - 12
    12 - 1:30
    1:30 - 3
    3 - 4:30
    4:30 - 6  Plus we will need 3 - 4 people to help with take down.

Please email me at with a few options of which shifts you would like to help out with. Thanks so much for being part of the photographic community!

Sincerely, Judy McPhee

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.
