Pictures are due to Jim by March 18th for the March competition and by April 1st for the April competition.
Just a reminder that our March meetings will be flipped. The first meeting, March 6th, we will have Steve Gettle as a guest speaker. Then we will hold our monthly competition on March 20. Assignment is GLASS. Claudia
If everyone could please have their Steampunk photos to me by the March 20th meeting, I would appreciate it. Thanks! I need to compile them all on dvd's for the models. I had promised them we would give them the pictures within 2 months. Claudia

It has been discussed at a few previous meetings regarding black and white entries in competition. There has been some questions about photos that have a spot of color. In the past we have allowed one color to remain in the photo and still be considered black and white. This has become a problem with some pictures having different shades of the same color and has come into question many times to the point that it is hard for the judges to make a call on some photos. Different judges have different thoughts on the idea, and since we really should have a cut and dried rule so it is fair for all, we have voted to deem the black and white category as "MONOCHROME", meaning it has to be all the same color, whether it be black and white, sepia tone or all blue, etc. No spot of color will be accepted in the Monochrome category. If you have any questions, please talk to me. This takes effect with the February 2018 competition. Thanks...
I know we have a meeting on Tuesday and will talk about this, but I just wanted to give a little heads up. Steve Gettle will be a guest speaker at our meeting on March 6th. While this is normally our competition night, in keeping with Steve's schedule as he is always traveling, we took his available date. We can switch our competition to the third Tuesday in March. Everyone please try and make the meeting. I myself am really looking forward to it. :) Thanks, - Claudia
