Covid19 UPDATE

Hello Fellow Camera Club Members,

We hope everyone is doing well as we go through these unprecedented times. Never did we think we would be going through this.

Your Executive has had two meetings and we’d like to give you an update to keep you informed.

We are extending everyone’s membership to January 1, 2021.

At present, we won’t be holding any meetings in person due to Covid regulations for limited capacity. Our meeting room at the Quality Inn will only allow 16 persons at a meeting due to social distancing rules. The ballroom would be able to hold more people but that would make it difficult to see the screen or for people who are at the back of the room to hear well. We are also taking into consideration that some members may not feel comfortable with a meeting format at this time.

At present, the only feasible way to have speakers is via applications such as Zoom. A survey will be sent out soon for you to comment on.

We have had two outings in the past few weeks. The first one was to Lee Brown Sanctuary near Long Point to photograph the Milky Way and the Neowise Comet. The second was to Bonnieheath Lavender Farm and Winery near Waterford. Both were very successful with groups of 10 or less and social distancing being observed.

We are looking to do more outings to keep members involved. We realize not everyone will feel comfortable taking part, but the outings will be planned very carefully with everyone’s safety our major concern.

We are also in the process of judging Contest Three and the Photo Art contest and finalizing our trophy winners for the 2019-20 year. Once this information is known, you will be notified.

You will receive a document in the near future containing the photographs for Contest Three asking you to pick your Member’s Choice.

We feel it is important for the life of our Club to try to keep on track as much as we can. We know that in these trying times that will be more difficult, but we are certainly looking at ways to

We are doing our best under these uncertain times and hope everyone remains safe until we are able to meet again in person.
