November 2010 Newsletter
November 8th- 6:30-8:00 pm
What a fantastic Fall Photo Contest!! A record number of entries and a variety of different winning photographers in the 6 categories. The photos were all very well done and everyone should be very proud of their entries. Congratulations to all the winners! Please remember to pick up your photos from the library no later than our meeting on Monday, November 8.
I'm looking forward to our meeting this month since it's another opportunity for a couple of our members to share their experience and insights with our members. One of the strengths of our club is members willing to teach and mentor other members. You see it during field trips, workshops and at all the side discussions going on before and after our meetings. It's a wonderful way to learn and expand our skills and everyone gains from the experience. Join us at this meeting to learn more about histograms and Lightroom.
Our 2011 Board is coming together and we will be submitting the slate of members at the November meeting for member approval. Your current Board is already working with the proposed new Board members to begin planning for next year to assure an orderly transition. We want to continue the club's success and growth and make sure you have lots of fun learning opportunities in 2011. If you have any ideas or suggestions for speakers, field trips or workshops, please send them to us at [email protected] .

The entries were high quality as usual and selecting the winning images was not an easy task.
