At today’s steering committee meeting, the following three events were tentatively planned:
- a hands-on workshop designed to make the members more familiar with their camera functions tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, 13 January, from 1-4 pm.
- a workshop to help members create slide shows using various software platforms (e.g. Pro Show Gold, Pictures to EXE, etc). tentatively scheduled for Thursday, 14 April, from 1-4 pm.
- if members would be willing to prepare and share short slide shows (3 to 4 minutes) to show at the May meeting. This will be after many members will have taken winter holidays and may be willing to share their experiences and after the club’s slide show preparation seminar.
Please let us know what you think of these ideas.

- Don’t forget to look up
