Theme Competition
This month's theme was Motion/Action. Members were asked to limit submissions to no more than two photos to make the competition more meaningful. The winner was Norm W.
There is no theme contest next month due to the holiday party.

Photo Show Information 
  • All members who have photos for the show prepared their photo labels. 
  • Volunteers: J brought the updated volunteer list. She will send a reminder to everyone about a week before the show. 
  • Sales: Two issues were discussed; what to do with pictures that were sold, and whether to accept checks. It was agreed that pictures for which payment has been received will be marked as sold but not removed display until the show is over. After extensive discussion, it was agreed that Sun City residents only can pay for photos by check, showing their SCSCAI ID and writing their ID # on the back of the check. Dennis pointed out that our bank charges for checks returned for Insufficient Funds. Members accepting checks agreed to reimburse the club for any bad check charges. 
Holiday Party
This year, we will have a pizza party. Members may bring a guest. Invitations with an RSVP form will go out later in the week. Norm will be setting up and asked for volunteers to assist him. J noted that we have boxes of party supplies and decorations in the locked closet in the Photo Lab.

Meeting adjourned at 8:35 PM.

Respectfully submitted, J Filangeri, Secretary
