Welcome back everyone to the 2016/17 season! A special welcome to those members who are new to the club!
The Grand Valley Image Battle (GIVB) is a friendly competition between many of the region’s camera clubs. The battle makes for a fun review of a wide cross section of wonderful pictures.
In order to meet the entry deadline, while working around our October guest speaker, it requires us to vote on our submissions at our NEXT MEETING on October 3rd! The season is starting off running!
For me to process the submissions and meet the host club’s deadline, I need for you to email me as many as three images for consideration by September 28th. That’s only a week and change from today.
The requirements for the competition boil down to this:
• Each club may enter 18 images
• An image may be digital (and will be projected for judging) or printed to be eligible. Slides are NOT permitted.
• This is an open category competition. This means that any photographic-based image is allowed including those containing digital manipulation.
Brant Danard has put together an exciting program for 2016-2017. There will be lots of opportunity to learn, share and explore the art of photography.

I will be at Huron Natural Area this coming Sunday (Oct. 23rd) to capture the fall colours. Hope there will be some nice reflections in the water. All are welcome to join me - would love the company and the opportunity to get to know some of our new members.
I plan to be there around 8:30 AM - I will likely be there earlier, especially if we get a foggy morning. I will be at the rest area at the entrance at 8:30 to meet those of you who can make it.
Huron Natural Area is located off Trillium Drive in Kitchener.
Here is a link to the City of Kitchener website with information about the park, and a map to find it.
I will post if there is a change of plans due to the weather.
Hope to see you there.
Our next meeting is on October 17, 2016. The topic is Drone photography presented by John Tran. I am looking forward to learning more about using drones for photography.
As mentioned last night, Wednesday and Thursday this week Vistek is running ProFusion at the MTCC.
