Treasurer's Report: Dennis reported a Financial Balance of $294.

Refreshments Committee: Bob Sebastian brought refreshments for tonight's meeting.

Meeting Agenda & Discussion: 
Equipment Purchases: Norm suggested that it was time to look into transforming the Photo Lab into a place where members could post-process photos by purchasing a computer and some processing programs. Motion made, seconded, and passed unanimously to look into pricing for such equipment.

Theme Competition (What Makes This A Winner?)
This month's theme was Winter. We've changed how "best picture" is selected because we've been getting so many good photos entered that the winner is often the photo with only 2 or 3 votes. This time, only 1 photo was accepted per person. The top 3 vote getters were voted on again. The winners (tie) were Dennis Filangeri and Helen Delahunt. A brief discussion followed regarding what made these "winners." Photos are displayed in the Photo Lab for the next month.

Next month's theme is Still Life.

Interest Groups: The various groups reported on progress. Members were reminded that no one is chained to a group; members can change groups if they wish. Members were encouraged to use the on-line Google Photo Albums to share photos. Go to Google Photos and into Shared Albums.

The interest groups formed up to discuss next steps. Groups are reminded that they'll likely do their presentations to the club starting at the April meeting.

Groups are encouraged to meet in the Photo Lab. You can schedule your group's time in the lab on our website. Go into Calendar and book the room to avoid timing conflicts.

Photo Walk
iPhones: Joyce reminded members that the next Photo Walk is in Downtown Summerlin at the Apple Store. Details on the website. Please note that you MUST be a member to attend this photo walk.

Meeting adjourned at 8:45 PM.

Respectfully submitted, J Filangeri, Secretary
