Christmas Party & Equipment Swap (paid members only) - we will hold the party at Meridian Friends Church in the Fellowship Hall which is in the main building. The theme for the Xmas party is "giving back to the membership." The club will be catering the dinner so attendees are only asked to bring a desert to share. We also will be selling raffle tickets for some great prizes in the form of smaller items and gift cards. So bring the equipment you no longer use to sell and some cash and you may get lucky. In the past we have had some great equipment bought/sold.
We will have some great prizes for the raffle. Tickets will be sold for $1.00 each. Proceeds from the sale of the tickets will go to either bring in outside speakers or subsidize a photo trip for a lucky member. We will have a combination of "stocking stuffer items" and gift cards valued at: 1 - $200, 1 - $150, 1 - $75, 3 - $50, 3 - $25 as part of the raffle. The more tickets that you buy the better your chance at getting one of the big prizes.
If you are not currently a member and would like to join the club this would be a great time to join so that you can participate in our Christmas Party & Equipment Swap. Family membership is only $25.00. We will also start to accept/collect dues for 2019 for members that want to pay.
Since we are catering the meal we need to know if you plan to attend and how many. Please RSVP no later than Friday December 7th

Flickr Photo Sharing for club members.
An open forum for posting and discussing topics of your choice
We have a slideshow of images during the last 15 minutes of every meeting. Members are encouraged to bring up to 5 photos on a thumb drive to club meetings to share. It's a fun way to see other peoples photos, and get ideas of places that are fun and beautiful to photograph.

Landscape photography is one of the art forms where the canvas is already laid out in front of the photographer. It becomes the challenge to make that canvas into the artist's vision. Instructors of photographic composition say, among other things, that it's the art of what not to include in the picture that makes a compelling visual expression - Dan Mottaz
