November 27th Monthly Meeting: Photo Contest

November 27th meeting and PHOTO CONTEST!!! 

We are resurrecting the annual photo contest, and currently soliciting volunteer judges and assistance in putting together a fine evening, as in years gone by.

Assistance will be needed in setting up and taking down chairs, and beverages and snacks and various associated accouterments. In addition, some shopping will need to be done, for said beverages and snacks.  

judging panel will need to be struck to decide on winning submissions in as many as 15 categories. At this time there are two members who have agreed to be on the panel. Two more would be ideal. It's anyone guess how many submissions they will need to sort through. That will depend on the enthusiasm of our members!

Here is the lowdown on the rules and the categories:


  • Photos must have been taken by a paid up member of the Edmonton Section. 

  • Photos must have been taken within the last 2 years.
