Seventeen people attended the meeting on Sept. 18, 2017. Our club judged 79 images in the Digital Travel category.
Judges: Dave Smethers, John Leicht, and Kevin McTeague. Judging facilitators: Cara Pusateri, Pamela Brandt, Ron Tigges.
Treasurer DeWayne Beecher collected annual dues. [Reminder: Annual club dues are only $20 and allow you to submit images for competition and participate in exhibits and other events.]
At the start of the meeting, Jennifer Tigges gave an overview of the organizing that will need to go into the 2018 convention. She and Ron will be attending this year’s Presidents, Pixels & Pines event in South Dakota and taking notes. If anybody else is attending the event, please bring back ideas!
Remember, everybody will have to pitch in to make the 2018 event next year a success. It will be headquartered at the downtown Dubuque Holiday Inn with many events within walking distance. The name of the event is Blufftops and Visions. Be sure to like the new Blufftops and Visions page on Facebook.
The club meeting on Oct. 16 meeting will be a preliminary planning meeting. Think about potential partners, who you would like to see as a presenter, or what you would like to have as a workshop or field trip, and be ready to toss out ideas!
If you want to see terrific examples of photography by club members, be sure to visit the Dubuque Museum of Art. The Dimensions of Photography, an exhibit of photographs by the Dubuque Camera Club, will be on display in the upstairs balcony through October 29, 2017.
