We invite you to join us for this intensive one-day course that teaches how to identify the strengths and weaknesses in any image be it yours, a friend’s or in a competition. A comprehensive 120-page resource manual outlining major genres (i.e. Landscape, Portrait, Abstract etc.) and what Judges look for in each; how to score, comment and give feedback, is included. This manual is invaluable for your next shoot or Judging gig. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Kamloops April 29th for this renowned CAPA Judging Course.

It is time again for our Annual Awards Night, May 28 2016. The evening will consist of awards, door prizes, food (pot luck) and slide shows. Bring a food dish (and a warming tray for any hot dish), dishes and cutlery. Optionally, short slide shows and door prize donations would be appreciated.
Tickets will be available for purchase @ $5.00 per person. (Spouses/partners are welcome to purchase a ticket as well). They are available from Bill Locke at club meetings or at the door the night of the event. If you plan on paying at the door, please RSVP to Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can know the numbers to expect.
The location for Awards Night is the First Lutheran Church at 4091 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna. It is located east of the lakeshore bridge. Watch for a fire lane on your right just before Lakeshore Rd. This lane is the easiest access to the back door of the church with lots of parking. If you miss the turn, then turn right onto Lakeshore and then another right hand turn into the front of the church area and then proceed around to the back of the church for parking.
Our evening will consist in addition to the awards, door prizes, food and slide shows.
If you have an article you wish to donate for a door prize please contact Suzanne Williams.
The time is from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. It would be appreciated if volunteers could help out setting up tables and chairs as close to 7:00 as possible. The tables are round and will seat 6 to 8 people depending upon our turnout. You will need to bring a warming tray if you are bringing a hot dish. Although paper plates will be available it is recommended that you bring your own plates along with your cutlery.
If you have any questions or can assist that evening, please contact Caroline, Bill, Joan or Frank.
Thank you and look forward to seeing everyone there
