Just a reminder everyone...our meetings now start at 6:45. This will allow us to finish our competitions and be able to look at the prints afterwards and talk a bit. We will also begin our workshop meetings at 6:45. Thanks. Claudia
At our last meeting, suggestions for future Training and Workshops were requested and a number were submitted at the meeting. The following are the suggestions that were made. If you have any additional ideas, please submit them as a comment to this blog entry. Also, if you have any ideas for field trips, please add them. Kaz
Last night we had our picture of the year competition. Pat will soon be posting the results and the winners' pictures here on our site. Pat and I will be ordering the tropies for the winners on Friday to be presented at club as soon as they come in.
We went over the 2014 assignments last night because I was getting a lot of questions on some of the categories. I have made the revisions that we discussed and printed them below for you. Please make sure you refer to the "Revised" list when entering your pictures in assignment competition. Thanks! Claudia

Due to the bad roads and lack of participants this evening, we have decided to postpone the competition to our next meeting on January 21st. Stay safe and warm everyone.
Hello everyone. I called the library this morning and they ARE open, so we are a go for tonight's picture of the year. See you all then. Please dress warm and drive carefully. Claudia
Happy New Year Everyone
Our competition for 2013 photo of the year is currently scheduled for Tuesday January 7th. Due to the weather insanity that we are experiencing it is difficult to know at this point if the library will be open. Please check on Tuesday to see if it is open. If not we will hold the competition at our next meeting. The phone number to the Southgate Veterans Memorial Library is 734-258-3002.
Remember if you have a print 1st place photo you need to bring it in for it to be placed in the competition.
I will compile all the digital 1st place photos. Pat
