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 ...?

Me and the GF went to see the photography exhibit a few days ago. Was really interesting to see the gear and settings used for each shot. Lots of 1.4x teleconverters, so now I'm eyeing one up myself lol

Ok everyone, Sunday Feb 22 it is!  Leaving, I suppose (anyone for earlier??) on the 9:50 ferry, carpooling in 2 cars, and coming home when we wish.  Anna isn't able to come but I think Laurie is, and possibly Doug M, in his own truck with dogs, so if Timmy's coming, we'll be 8 or so.  Sound ok?  Is anyone down in the Vesuvius area and able to pick up Elehna?

It's good for me. If someone is willing to drop me off, which means they might also have to pick me up. Vesuvius.

I'm in for Sunday Feb 22nd

Ok everybody, how is Sunday Feb 22?  All in favour say "I" (or aye, if you wish...)

My car takes 4, but it's not the easiest for in & out being a 2 door.  I know my way around Victoria very well so I would gladly navigate for someone.

HI - I"m interested. Only thing is that I don't drive at night so if we come back and it's dark I'll have to be dropped off at home. ( Vesuvius). Weekday or weekend is good for me.

Ok, starting on the second car--glad you want to come, Jean!  Anyone else?

Great Sylvia!  I'm a good Victoria navigator.

Sounds like we have a car full.  Timmy may be interested too.  Anyone else??

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.
