Our next meeting will be at the Pin & Cue Bowling Alley in Whitefish, MT. at 6:30PM Thursday, October 13th 2005. We will have a program. Mike Spence will demonstrate the art of dry mounting your photos. This will be a great hands on program.
Mike is bringing his dry mount press, some tissue, a print, a mount board and he will show us how dry mounting is done. Most of us don’t dry mount our own prints but after his demonstration perhaps we will take a greater interest in doing so. George, Marcel and I have been doing our own dry mounting for some time now but none of us claims to know it all. I will be especially interested in how he dry mounts color. That is a trick we have not tried and we have no idea how it’s done.
We had a really nice meeting with some excellent slides. I was fascinated with the skateboard pictures. Steve showed us that you can make great pictures out of any subject if you have a little talent. Mike and Adele did some incredible flower pictures. Adele showed some versatility with her great river shots. Flowers were big; Bruce got in the act also with his flower shots. Then he went one step further and topped off his presentation with the last of the Ospreys. We won’t see them until next spring.
We traveled extensively with slides from Koocanusa, Yellowstone, the Tetons, Canada and Kintla. All without leaving the dinner table. It doesn’t get any better. Becca had some wonderful slides from Koocanusa and Yellowstone and the Tetons. Jesse spent time in the North Fork country.
Joe stole the show with his Canadian trip and all of his nifty barn pictures. Joe really did some beautiful barn pictures. The best I have ever seen.
Thanks to all of you for enlightening our lives.
What do we do about the “BANK” show? Adele and Myrna have done a fine job with our show, but have had little support from others in our club. There are many other places besides banks that would like the show. We need to find them or just call it a bank show forever. There is nothing wrong with the show as it is but it’s not that much harder to do it year around. We could relocate the show every six weeks or even two months. Finding different venues is something each of us can do. If you are in a café or any other place that has some wall or lobby space ask if they would like a great show. If yes is the answer, book a date right there, then let one of our chairpersons know. While you are letting them know offer to help move the show. If one person can move the show two or three can do it easier and for sure have more fun doing it. Do it before lunch then have lunch with the moving gang. Finding locations and moving the show should not be a job.
