Saying THANKS to those "Other People" :)

Saying THANKS to those "Other People"

Hello Folks,

Yesterday we sent out our yearly "Black Friday Ads" newsletter.   The BFA newsletter is how we say "THANKS" to those who are our active, regular members.

Sometimes we don't properly thank "those other folks".

Organizers and Volunteers spend hours (and sometimes days) preparing classes and setting up photowalks.  Then they often spend their entire photowalk helping other members with their cameras (and don't get to take many pictures themselves). 

They help make sure everyone else is having a fun and safe experience.  At the end of the day, volunteers rarely get more than a "Thank You" for their work.  And to make sure everything looks "fair and honest", organizers often get cut out of contests and give-aways. :(

This year, Nik Software and Google sponsored our Black Friday Ads newsletter.  And they are hosting a special drawing for the unsung heroes in the group: our Assistant Organizers, Hosts, and Volunteers.   It's a MAJOR Thank You and wouldn't be possible without the super-cool cats at Nik and Google (

So, volunteers who have lead events and classes, watch your email for a very special early Christmas surprise from a Google email address. :)

Thanks Guys, we wouldn't have such an amazing group without your efforts and hours of work! And thanks to Nik and Google for their continued support of!
