**IMPORTANT**Due to the COVID-19 emergencies, our Club is taking measures to protect our members' health and safety. We advise all members to follow the guide lines and regulations of the government. From now on until further notice, all of our meetings will be held online. Detailed instructions will be sent to all members by email.
From September through June we meet twice monthly, usually on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month from 6:30 - 9.00pm.
The first meeting of each month is our evaluation night. Members submit images on set themes for constructive feedback and evaluation by fellow club members. Having images evaluated helps you develop and improve as a photographer; it can help you learn what makes a good image great so you can apply these insights to your own efforts. Please refer to our Image Submission Guidelines for details.
Our second meeting of the month is our education night, which comprise guest presentations, slide shows, photo workshops, hands-on projects and photo challenges, etc.
Our December meeting is a members' showcase and pot luck supper which is held at the Vernon Library starting at 6:30pm.

Rain Project - Bring your camera and lenses and using your imagination; create some amazing rain images. Reflections of street and traffic lights in puddles, raindrops on flowers and plants, people with colorful umbrellas, etc. Even if it doesn’t rain we will still be out photographing in and around the Polson Park.
Concurrently, throughout the evening there will be an informative “gallery” display of Jim Brompton’s incredible prints inside the Arts Centre. Jim will be there to discuss the story behind the images and to answer questions.
**Both the outdoor event and the display of Jim Brompton’s prints require all members to observe COVID restrictions carefully.
