Goomeri Trip. 10th April 2022

Our Goomeri trip on the 10th of April. Take your own accommodation ie. Van or Tent there is a great camping area a few ks past Goomeri, and there is a Motel in town. We arrive on Saturday and meet for dinner at the camp kitchen. Sunday morning we go into town and enter the Cherry Ripe challenge, answer the questions with an image produced with your camera, the challenge will begin at 10.30am, after a cup of tea/coffee. If you wish to drive out on Sunday morning you will find that it is about 2 hours drive.

Please let me know if you are planning to go.  gg@gerrygibson.com.au

The Missing Subjects

My apologies for what appears to be very late notice for a couple of subjects, but we have them now!

I’m away from many things including the internet until sometime late next week so I’ll update the set subjects list and our calendar (which is in need of a couple of corrections) on my return.

In the meantime please use a pen to fill in those gaps in your set subjects list!

JUNE 8 – Set Subject “CLIMATE CHANGE”

AUGUST 10- Set Subject “PEOPLE”

These are both subjects set for the Tewantin Shield and Interclub competitions respectively and we have no further definitions to hand at the moment. Both seem to be fairly self explanitary.

I suspect a photograph of some volunteers knee deep in flood water while fighting a bushfire would be exactly on topic!

First Inter-club competition for 2022

SEQ 22 is our first annual Inter-club competition for this year and features both print and digital images. Please consider entering, as our members usually do well in this comp. It’s also a good platform to commence submitting to competitions if you haven’t done so before, as there are separate A and B grade sections. If you need any assistance, feel free to contact our External Events Co-ordinator, Di East at di.east1000@gmail.com or via our Facebook page.

Caloundra Camera Group was placed 3rd in this competition in 2021, close behind Gympie Camera Club, so we encourage as many members as possible to enter this year to give us the best chance of taking second place.

Winning entries (including prints) will be forwarded to the Australian Interstate Photographic Competition later in the year.

You will need to submit your digital images individually through the SEQ22 website by 25th March, 2022, however prints need to be handed in at the CCG meeting on 9th March, 2022 for delivery prior to judging.

Topics for this year are (separate A & B grade): Open colour, Open mono, People, Nature, Social Documentary, Photo Travel.

The cost is $10 for the first section and $3 for each additional section which is very reasonable. You can enter a maximum of 4 images into each print and DPI section.

For full details and to submit your images, go to the PSQ 2022 website: PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY OF QUEENSLAND – SEQ 2022 (psq.org.au)

It’ll be a real bummer…

If we have to zero out your scores tomorrow night because you haven’t paid your annual fees!

Yes that’s right, at least half of us have started off the year in a little more laid back fashion than our treasurer would prefer! If you haven’t paid your fees could you please do so tonight or during the course of the day tomorrow.

Please?

Which of course leads us into another reminder that we will be meeting tomorrow virtually via Zoom for our Competition Night at 7:00 PM. Gerry will have a link out via email at about 6:30 with the details.

If you have missed our previous notices about payment of fees, log into our website while you still can, hit the “INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS” link and all you need to know can be found under a heading which not accidentally reads “BANKING DETAILS – HOW TO PAY FEES”
