Special Interest Groups Update-

When the program was initiated, members were asked to select a specific Special Interest Group to join to determine the level of interest in the three groups.   The feedback received has been favorable, and many members have requested a means for attending all group discussions.   It was decided that the Post-Processing SIG will continue meeting during the second half of the Competition Meeting, i.e., the third Monday of the month from 8pm-9pm.  The Wildlife/Nature and Landscape SIGs will meet on the 4thMonday of the month (beginning January 28th) from 7pm-8pm and from 8pm-9pm, respectively.  The specific meeting room will be announced at the January 7th Speaker Meeting. I am requesting that all members of the SIGs donate $10 which will cover the cost of a room rental in the Talbot County Community Center for the remainder of the season and a month or so into the new season.  SIG members can attend any of the group discussions and outings.
