The Weekly June 21

The Weekly 800 250
The Weekly is a publication of the Jacksonville Camera Club. It provides a heads up of the coming events and announcements of a timely nature. It contains both Club events and other items of interest to members. If you have feedback or something to announce please see directions in the sidebar. Thanks for reading.

COVID-19 Statement

Our club meetings will resume on July 1st! You should have received an email statement from our president, Young McQueen.  Here is the content of that message:

We are resuming our meetings on July 1, 2020 under strict CDC guidelines. The program will be the Print Contest Results presented by Print Contest Chair, John Neel. These are stated in the attached document. Please read carefully. It is a PDF so you can easily print yourself a copy. I feel with these protocols you will be safer than visiting a grocery store but please do not attend meetings yet if you
  • Feel any hesitation to do so
  • Have health complications that are listed by the CDC as increasing your probability of negative outcomes from the virus.

If you choose to come you may come a little closer to 7:00 PM than normal since we have no space to socialize prior to the meeting (except outside). Thank you all. -Young

Coming Events

To view all upcoming events, please visit the Calendar and Schedules on our website.

1st Triannual Digital Competition Results

A VIRTUAL results presentation has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 24th at 7:00 pm.  Karen Sirnick will be presenting all of the images entered along with judges comments. For more information and to register, please visit the blog.

June "Inning" Outing

Though we are still under moderate restrictions due to Covid-19, we are getting out and about somewhat. Let's see how we are keeping our photography skills up. Share an image you've taken this month, or share something you've been working on in your home darkroom whether it's digital or an old-fashioned smelly one. Visit the outing post for more details and a link to the image gallery.

People's Choice

With your positive feedback about the idea of going virtual, the People's Choice contest is gearing up for a strong return in JULY!  The next contest theme will be FOOD. The entry period will be open from July 5th - July 11th.  You may enter one (1) digital image for each month's theme, similar to our prior in-person people's choice contests. Stay tuned for more details and instructions about this new virtual contest!

2020 Schedules

Please keep a close eye on the Schedules page for information about our changing programs, contests and outings. Jeff Garbow, our new program chair, along with his program committee are hard at work creating new dates for some of our past programs.  Please be patient as we work through all of the details during this challenging time!

Information of Interest

Chat Forum is Live!

We are testing a new feature of the website.  You must be registered for the website and logged in to view this new Chat Forum.  On the members menu, you'll find a new option for this page.  Click on the "Chat Forum" menu option (to the right of "Nexus").

With the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing, we want to give all club members a way to stay in touch, even if virtual is your personal choice.  The only information found there will be created by other users, so give it a try!

There are going to be "bugs" in this system.  Please let the Webmaster know if something isn't working properly.

P.S. - ALL formal club information will still be communicated on the website Blog and Schedules pages, via direct email, and/or through this newsletter, The Weekly.
