June meeting at Camp Brewster

There is another event at the forest that has bumped, us once again, for our June 17, 2021 meeting. The WiFi signal at Camp Brewster is not very good. I will attempt a Zoom call as well as the in-person meeting. WiFi must be strong enough with adequate bandwidth.The forest may not be able to fix the signal strength in time. We will see!

I have posted the June 17 meeting in the Events/Calendar on the website. There are directions to Camp Brewster as well as a map. I will send out a reminder the closer we get to the 17th.

May Meeting

We had good participation at our May 20th meeting. 24 members attended to take pictures of three raptors shown by the forest’s raptor group. The meeting went very well. It was wonderful to see members again in person. After the the photos were taken the photo club presented, to the forest, a check for $300.00 to be used for food for the raptors. Check out the meeting minutes below.

Pat Mingarelli is our speaker

Pat will be discussing National Parks. For the talk, he will give some background information about the parks and spend probably the majority of his time speaking about how to make the most of one’s photographic excursion to the national parks.
