It’s a new Club Year

Well, it’s time to dust off the photos you have been creating this summer and get ready to show them to the rest of us.

September Meeting

Our first meeting of the new Club year will not be on the usual third-Thursday of the month due to conflicting schedules at CASA. Instead, we will be meeting on Wednesday, September 21st. We meet at CASA at 6:30pm.

The theme for the first meeting is “Open”, as in, anything goes. Paid members, or members intending to pay at the September meeting should have their images submitted by 11pm Sunday, September 11th. Check out our Monthly Theme page for more details.

We will have our usual theme assessment on Monday, September 12th in the small meeting room at CASA starting at 7pm. The more participants we have, the greater the range of opinions and perspective. All members are welcome.

Meetings for the rest of the year will continue to be held on the third Thursday of each month, as per usual.

Membership Fees

As it is the beginning of a new year for the Club, your annual membership fees are now also due. Annual membership is $50 or $35 for students

Support your Club, join the Executive

At our annual general meeting, Thursday, October 20th, we will be accepting nominations for the board directors and for the position of President. Please consider putting your name forward. It is an interesting experience to contribute to the future of the Club.

For the 2017 club year, we will have several vacancies within the executive that need to be filled. The club needs your support to be able to function properly.

As well, we’ll be needing a volunteer to take on the task of running the laptop and projector at meetings.

Upcoming Field Trips

Now that summer is coming to a close it is time to get back to arranging some field trips for the next couple of months.
For now, only the ‘when’ and the ‘where’ are being passed along with complete details to follow as the events draw closer,
  • Saturday, September 10th to Police Outpost Provincial Park (and wetlands). For those unfamiliar with the Park it is SW of Cardston and lies along the US border.
  • Tuesday, September 27th (from 5:30 to 8:00) to the Nikka Yuko Japanese Gardens. The Gardens will be opened to Club members only. It will provide a chance to take advantage of the early fall evening light. A plus is that the admission will be free.
  • Saturday, October 15th to the Crowsnast Pass. This is our Annual Gerry Lutwick Memorial Field Trip to the Pass. This year the trip will concentrate mainly on the west end of the Pass centred in and around Coleman.
At least two other trips are being considered for late October and November. Details to follow in due course.

See you all, new and old members alike, at the meeting.
