1. New Thursday Night Meetup Location
Starting with our next Thursday night meetup, Thursday October 4th, we will no longer be meeting at the Visitor’s Bureau on Greenfield Road. The good news is that we have a great new location that will allow us to continue to meeting in much the same fashion as we have been for the past 4 years! For the foreseeable future we will be gathering at the Student Memorial Center (SMC) on the campus of Millersville University.
I would like to say a special thanks to meetup member Adam, who stepped up to the plate in not only finding us a location that will fit our needs as a group, but also allow us to continue to offer our programs at no cost to members. Also, I’d like to thank everyone who suggested an alternate location for us to meet. It’s gratifying to know that meetup members are engaged enough to rally to the group’s cause when the need arises! I would also be remiss if I didn’t thank the Visitor’s Bureau for allowing us to meet in their theatre for the last 4 years. They were very kind in allowing us to use that space free of charge and deserve recognition for their generosity in that regard.
There will probably be some bumps along the road as we transition to our new space (I know it’s a longer trip for some, shorter for others) but I’m personally excited that we can confidently plan Thursday night meetups into 2013 knowing that space will be available to us to get together! As we get closer to the first Thursday night in October I will be sending out reminders about our new location as well as information on how parking will work (we have permits that will be distributed at each meetup that will allow you to park in the lot next to the SMC during the evening of the events.)
2. Upcoming Events
We have a bunch of things coming up the next couple of months. Get your RSVP swerve on…
3. Check out some great photos
We had a record number of photos submitted for last month’s assignment, Yellow. Check them out online (or upload yours if you haven’t done so) here: http://www.meetup.com/lancasterphotographers/photos/10584392/
4. Let us know what you want to do!
In the next few months organizers will be getting together to start to plan out events for the first half of 2013 and your input is always welcome. Want to learn about a topic we haven’t covered yet? Let us know. Know of a great person who would make a great presenter on a specific topic? Hook them up with us! Want to go someplace we haven’t been to before on a photowalk (or even someplace we’ve been before you thought was fun), shoot us a message about it! Send any of your great suggestions to [address removed].
5. 52 Week Project
The good folks over on the 52 week project keep churning out photos. Check em’ out and start thinking about what kind of group project we want to tackle as a group for 2013!
Till next time, keep shootin'
