    Congrats to the winners of the print contest! Great job, I would have really liked to have seen the prints in person and heard the feedback from the judges and the photographers -- always an education and a means of improving my own work efforts. I am so sorry I missed tonight's meeting; I spent the weekend printing, matting and framing and then left work today thinking it was Monday! It sure felt like a Monday :(

    Hey everyone! I am looking forward to attending some meetings after the summer is over. I was able to attend in June and loved it. I am wondering if there is a discussion board for this group? The reason I ask is because my little speedlight just broke on me yesterday. I am wondering if any if y'all recommend a good repair person, or if there is a place where y'all advertise used equipment among eachother. This little speedlight may not have any hope. :-(

      So was I. Got a really great metal print I was going to have framed and then...poof....there it goes. My Fall Semester schedule is GREAT...gives me more days free but its a heavy day Tuesday. So sorry for the next couple months I won't be able to attend, but any outings? Please keep us informed.

    I would love to be there but my teaching schedule..I have classes from 3 to 5:30, then 5:30 to 6:45 and then 7 to 9:30 pm. So for this semester I will not be there...BUT to give you all a head's up, I am planning a trip to Iceland in March 2015, Jet Blue to Boston, then Icelandair RT for UNDER $800. Anyone interested in joining? Have my teenage granddaughter joining us as well. Let me know: [masked]

    Whoever is typing the upcoming notifications for the Camera Club has misspelled "Some" and spelled it "Sone!" I would suggest correcting it...
