The Dubuque Camera Club is working on the details of the 2023 N4C Convention titled ” Blufftops & Backroads”  With a similar name to the 2018 convention that Dubuque hosted, we promise to shake things up a bit for this one. (Yes we are entertaining bringing back those models) There will be more hands on opportunities and we will be exploring the neighboring states of Illinois and maybe Wisconsin too.  Hotel rooms will be $139 a night with a daily hot breakfast buffet included with the hotel stay each day.
