In the Spotlight

June Club Competition
June 9 Wildflowers

The June Club Competition will be Wildflowers; and images had to be taken this year. There is still time and a great opportunity to go out and shoot! Then find all the information you can on your flower to give a proper title to your image as well! See Club Comps in the Menu for how to bring your print image or digital submission.


We will vote on Club Constitution changes at this June Meeting. You can preview these changes: Proposed Constitution, so we don't have to use a lot of time at the meeting. Please bring any questions you need answered.

Take Me to Your Leader

It is also time to vote on our club officers at this Meeting. Our Nominations Committee suggests we elect the same officers for next year - see Constitution changes regarding term limits. Other nominations from the floor can be accepted. Our current fearless leaders for this year:

  • Rob Welton - President
  • Lee Smalley - Secretary-Treasurer
  • Yvonne Dalschen - VP-Program Chair
  • Jim Parks - VP-Competition Chair
  • Don Miller - *new* Salon Chairman

Current or Coming Up ...

Salon 2015

Don Miller has stepped up to get ready for this year's Salon. More information coming soon ... We are pleased to tell you the exhibit at the New Hope Center will have a longer display time again. Start reviewing your recent images for this major event. Don will be glad for any help! Please email him at for information.

Secret City Festival

COR will provide photography support for this community event again this year. Join other club members shooting the festival's many activities on Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13. More details about the event at To see our images from last year's event, click on the Secret City link on the home page.

AMSE Photo Exhibit

Not too late to submit an image for this year-long exhibit at the American Museum of Science and Energy. They agreed to display "Science and Nature" themed prints that are mounted on 16x20 board, like we do for the Salon. You can take your prints directly to the museum or bring them to a meeting. The museum supports 66,000 visitors per year - so this is great opportunity for both the club and members to showcase our work!

August meeting - Meet and Greet
August 11

Both for new + "old" members -- Bring in fairly recent images that reflect your interests, and write a brief note to introduce yourself, your photography, any special photographic interests. We'd like to make it easier for those with common interests to share and connect with each other.
