Doug Shaffer, contest committee, informed the members that the Linn County Fair’s photography contest is open to anyone. Doug went over the rules. He also inquired if anyone was interested in being a judge.
The contests for the rest of the year are:
July – Wood
August – Urbanites
September – Entertainment
October – Mask
November – Annual Contest
Our speaker this month needed to cancelled, so the members broke into groups according to their brand of camera. Members discussed and helped each other with any questions they had on the features of their cameras.
Our contest this month was “In a Row.” There was a three-way tie for second place to Pam Olson, Cyd Graftt and Patti Sampson. There was a two-way tie for first place to Pam Olson and Steve Thompson.
Doug Shaffer offered to host a small group at his house to work on what we learned today. He will let us know details later.
We thanked Studio Reserve for allowing us to use their space these past several months.
Meeting was adjourned.
