    I am moving to Alaska in mid-April and am looking forward to getting to know my camera again as well as being a part of this group. Perhaps in May or June once we've settled.

      We are looking forward to meeting you. Our meetings are pretty informal, as is the club (no dues or membership fees). Normally we don't meet in June, July or August because everyone is outside enjoying the summer.
