Club Meeting – 12 December 2012

Well it is hard to believe that 2012 is now almost over. This week is
the final KCC meeting of the year.

We will be taking a look back at what we have done over the past year
and planning ahead for next year.

As originally planned Bruce Pool is running the Creative Photography
Special Interest Group as part of Wellington Photographic Society. This
is completely separate from KCC.

However, wearing his KCC hat, Bruce is also going to take a more hands
on role in the KCC as well. And do we have some good plans/ideas to
discuss on Wednesday night!!

We will probably have a drink and a nibble or two. If you could bring a
small plate of something, that would be good.

When: 7:30pm, Wed 12th December 2012
Where: Karori Arts and Crafts Centre

Club Meeting – 28 November 2012

Well it is the second to last meeting of the year.

There are a few things to discuss.

  • The second is to discuss possible shared activies with Hutt Camera Club
  • The third is the final challenge for the year.

The topic for the final challenge is

Friendship

To recap, each member provides six images. The rest of the group

the end of year presentation which takes place at the final meeting
in December.

A couple of requests.
