JANUARY FIELD TRIP
Jan 19 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Many of you have asked to go to this local distillery and now here is your chance. It was established in 2011and is located on 380 acres in Oyster River (near Campbell River) We will be meeting with the staff for photographic tour of the facility and farm. They will be touring us through the farm in vehicles with lots of photographic stops. It is going to be a fabulous day. Because of distance I will have car pooling sheets available at the next meeting

It should be a lot of fun as we have the entire place to ourselves except for staff

Lunch location is the Driftwood Restaurant at noon- 1329 S Island Highway . It is only 2.8 km from the distillery.

The Harbour City Photography Club is hosting Photo Salon again this year.  Your image(s) need to be submitted by February 15th/2020.

Photo Salon is part of a worldwide system of recognized forums to showcase the commitment, achievement and outstanding work of photographers in the region. It is open to club and non-club members on Vancouver Island. A panel of judges adjudicates the digital entries and, if accepted, the photographs are printed, hung and evaluated for 1st -, 2nd -, and 3rd -place recognition. There is also a ‘People’s Choice’ award. Photo Salon is hosted by the Harbour City Photography Club in Nanaimo and is endorsed by the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA), the prime photography group in Canada.

Full details for image sizes and print sizes, dates and timeline are detailed in INVITATION-INFORMATION 2020.
