I wanted to send out some love and gratitude for making this a great group. Welcome to all our new members, and thanks for all the participation from our long time members. I want to invite everyone to make suggestions for meetups, or if anyone has an idea to make the group better. If you have any questions, we have a discussions board http://www.meetup.com/West-County-Photography-Group/messages/boards/ and a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/West-County-Photography-Group/371741013913. You are welcome to post to either. Please no self promotions. If you would like honest critque on your images, you may ask for when you post an image. If you don't ask, the group assumes you'd prefer not to have feed back and respects the artist. We have some big things coming up on the horizon- I hope to get a chance to meet everyone face to face soon. We also have online meetups that take place in your own time. So for anyone that might be shy, the online meetups are a good start to making new friends and being inspired.
For anyone that has been especially inspired that wants to give back, we have a donations page (http://www.meetup.com/West-County-Photography-Group/messages/boards/thread/34107052) this is totally voluntary. Donations are used towards costs of the site and for group prizes.
And I am sure you have seen the chatter, but I am heading off to the Eastern Sierras from Oct 3rd-11/12th. I will not be available for the normal emails and phone calls until after I get home. Our Facebook posts will also slow down. Feel free to post images, questions and links to our Facebook page to keep the energy up. And don't forget to send me your suggestions and ideas.
Thanks again all. Happy shooting.
