Theme Competition
This month's theme was Wildlife. Members were asked to limit submissions to no more than two photos to make the competition more meaningful. The winner was Dale K.
Next month's Theme is Motion/Action.
Photo Show Information
  • Photos for Display: All members are reminded that photos must conform to the format provided to everyone. Label info needs to be sent to Dennis either on line or as an email. We will finalize labels at the November meeting. Members were reminded that no photos will be accepted day of show.
