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.

Apologies to a couple of the new members for not getting the original broadcast as I had posted to email addresses that I had incorrectly transcribed.
I received some information that HGCC members might be interested in the film The Incomparable Rose Hartman that will be screening on October 27 at the Wilfrid Laurier University library as part of this year's Grand River Film festival. Rose is a New York photographer and celebrity who will be in attendance for a post screening Q & A. Tickets are available at www.grff.ca and on September 27 they are half price! Check it out.
Grant Greenfield shared that the local astronomy club will be setting up and showing the night sky through their equipment for the general public. A great chance to look through a telescope and see some astro-photography setups too.
Here is what Grant has to say:
Astronomy Clubs Star Party that is open to the public this Saturday evening Sept. 24 in Waterloo Park, Waterloo
To get to the park the entrance is beside the Old Fire Hall on Westmount , which is the First driveway South of University. If you pass the Shell Gas ,you just missed it. You can turn around in the rear of the Shell lot to come out back on Westmount for easy access to the difficult to see entrance
Then go to the very end parking area and follow the foot path to the dark huge viewing area. Their will be members with scopes and some with cameras attached. A great show and tell event.
I think someone looking to expand their interest or knowledge in another aspect of photography would be interested.
The evenings are still comfortable to be outside, so weather permitting could be great.
