September 2006 Meeting & Competition


What a turnout!  We had over 68 people in attendance, surely a new record.  Many new faces were present, and quite a few of them joined the club.  Most of the visitors found out about the club when visiting the photography exhibit at the AV Fair.

Another “first” happened tonight, as we had added digital entries to our competition schedule.  Over 50 digital entries were displayed, judged, and critiqued.  Entries were broken down into 2 categories (A-Advanced/Amateur and B-Novice/Amateur).  Congratulations to Ken Kuehne on his 1st place entry “Wendy’s Balloon”, and to John Shedrick for his 1st place winner, “Moss In Water”.  This was our “test run” for digital competitions, and Paul Craft, our digital competition chairperson, did an amazing job.  

As usual, we had many beautiful prints, and slide entries as well.  Many of our newest members participated, and won ribbons too!



We were very pleased to have Larry Cowles judge and critique entries for us.  Larry is a very active member of PSA (since 1987) and has received his PPSA, and EPSA.  He is President of Glendora Color Slide Group, member of Redlands Camera Club and Pomona Valley Camera Club.  Larry is currently Chairperson of the PT Division of S4C Council and Chairperson in CSD Division of S4C International Exhibition.

Larry went above and beyond the call of duty, and critiqued each and every entry.  No small task, since there were 117 entries, 50 digital entries, 19 slides, and 48 prints!!  The critiques proved to be a valuable learning experience for all.
