Meeting Announcement – February 2019

PSSCC Members and Friends,

Whoa Nelly!! What a bunch of snow!! As I write this, there are eight inches of winter wonder piled up in my backyard, and it’s still coming down.  I hope someone is brave enough to capture some of this in 3D for next week.

Which reminds me, our February meeting is coming up next week. It seems early this month just because the way the weekends fall, but next Saturday will be the third Saturday of the month. I trust the weather will be better then, but keep on the lookout. If the meeting had been scheduled for today, we’d have to cancel. We’ll reassess the weather as the weekend gets closer. Watch this space for cancellation notices. Hopefully the region will be snow-free by next weekend. 

Which reminds me that I need to remind everyone that we’re looking for great images of our region for the NSA slideshow advertising our 2020 convention here. As Phyllis announced at our last meeting, the convention will be held at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma August 10-17, 2020. We are planning trips to Rainier, Seattle Center,  the fish toss at Pike Place Market, Chihuly Garden and Glass at Seattle Center, the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, America’s Car Museum, and the Tacoma Art Museum. Any more ideas? Please share them at the meeting next week. 

Which reminds me, next week our regular contest theme will be “Night” which is one of my favorite themes of the year. I’m looking forward to this contest. Night shots offer terrific opportunities for creativity and experimentation. And novelty is spice of life…

Which reminds me: Food! Let’s bring some yummies! Here’s the sign up sheet.

Stay safe and warm this week. We’ll see you all next week.

January Meeting Announcement

PSSCC Members and Friends,

Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season is treating you well. 

Our next meeting is coming up on this Saturday. As you know, this is the first meeting where we meet on the THIRD Saturday of the month. We’ll continue meeting on the third Saturday through June.  We’ll take a summer break in July and August and then meet on the the third Saturday in September and October. In November and December we’ll meet on the second Saturday to avoid conflicts with the holidays. 

This month our club contest theme is Reflections. This is a theme very well suited to 3D photography so I think we’ll see some of our best stuff this time. I’m really looking forward to it. 

Our lunch potluck in December was a great success. Thanks to everyone for bringing so many delicious treats. This month we’re back to our regular volunteer sign up list. You can sign up to bring a thing on this page: 

In quick news, I’ve had some success with an outreach effort I made at the the Shoreline Community College. I’ll be working on a one-hour presentation on 3D photography for their Photography Department’s spring quarter classes. I’ll share more details this Saturday, and I’ll be asking for suggestions as well. 

Our Facebook page got some interest in the past few weeks. Sadly, I wasn’t watching it closely and didn’t realize that I had to APPROVE new members. Hmmm… I’ll try to watch more closely, but I don’t really spend much time on Facebook anymore. Are there any Facebook fans out there that might want to help moderate the page?

See y’all soon!
