Club Picnic at Rathtrevor Provincial Park
Jul 27 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

 

 

The club picnic is an old tradition being revived after an absence of many years. This should be a fun event scheduled for Wednesday July 27  at the number 2 Picnic shelter in Rathtrevor Provincial Park.

Bring a chair drink and your lunch.  The highlight of the picnic will be a photographic scavenger hunt. This event is outside and should be save from Covid.

Number 2 shelter should be marked as “Oceanside Photographers” or it may be in my name “Roderick (Rick) Horte”  We will attempt to put up club signs to mark the way.

August Meeting
Aug 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our speakers this month are new members Gillian (Gill) and Clay Ross who moved to the Island from Calgary this year.  They are originally from South Africa and have travelled extensively.  They have done a great deal of photography and enjoy talking about their travels.  Their presentation will have two components, the main portion is about travels in the southern area of South Africa while a second part will be about rodeos.  The Coombs Rodeo is coming here in August so they will have some tips for us.

 

 

We will be showing our slideshows from last month’s assignment, the favourites and the field trip.

Reminder 1 – we will be asking for your ‘Best of the Year’ photos later in the Fall

Reminder 2 – we will be entering the Lions’s Gate Nature Competition in the Fall
