July 2017 – News & Notes

The dog days of summer are upon us. Though the serious summer heat is upon us, I hope you have found a cool way to enjoy our common hobby, whether it be here or in more pleasant locations.

2017 Photo Contest

With the photo contest now over and the photos taken off display at Bellevue University, if you wish you can still view the 1st and 2nd place photos on display at Fontenelle Forest and the Bellevue Library. If you were unable to pick up your photo when they were taken down, please contact Judy Dye at jbdye@aol.com to make arrangements to pick up your entries.

Summer Meeting for Club Board 

The club’s Executive Board will be meeting soon to schedule the events that will fill our year’s meetings. If you have any ideas for meeting topics and/or events for the upcoming club year, please send them to me at webmaster@fontenelleforestphotoclub.org and I will be sure to present the ideas at the meeting.

Rockbrook Camera’s Tent Sale

The summer Tent Sale at Rockbrook Camera is taking place beginning Thursday July 13th through Saturday July 15th. This sale has some of their best deals of the year. One of the best deals in my opinion is the lens calibration for $30 and camera sensor cleaning for $40. These services normally cost at least twice as much. For more information on the sale go to http://www.rockbrookcamera.com/tent-sale-preview?utm_source=Rockbrook+Camera&utm_campaign=18beda65bf-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_07-06&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_35d778ea15-18beda65bf-123020377.

Crane Trust Photo Workshops

I recently received an email from Ben Dumas, the Excursion Director of the Crane Trust. The Crane Trust conducts several all-inclusive workshops throughout the year including one at the end of this month. To find out more about this opportunity, go to https://cranetrustexcursions.org/workshops/.

As always, please send any questions to me at webmaster@fontenelleforestphotoclub.org. Otherwise, enjoy your summer and we’ll see you at our next meeting on Thursday, September 21st.
