BPS Meeting Minutes
October 23, 2018

President Gary Smith opened the meeting with a few announcements. We had a packed house and a warm welcome was extended to all the visitors.

Our club has 43 paid members to date.

More volunteers are needed for the club’s booth at the Senior’s Expo on November 1st. Email Gary (bpsexecutive@gmail.com) if you can help out at a two hour shift.

Volunteers are still needed to create an exhibit committee. Two locations would like to have the club exhibit again early in 2019.

Club members are reminded of upcoming deadlines for competitions and photo sharing:
Nov 3 – Nature and Treasure Hunt digital submission deadline
Nov 10 – Nature and Monochrome print submission deadline
Nov 17 – photo sharing for “Resilience” deadline

Our next field trip is scheduled for Nov 18th and will be a Scavenger Hunt. Location to be announced…likely to be the Bridgewater area.

Honour Awards were handed out. Linda Hall presented Anna Mallin with an honour award for the Landscape/Seascape print competition. Two awards were obtained in the Floral digital category by Ravin Murugan (not present at the meeting).

Competition Committee Chair Trevor Awalt announced the results for the Floral Trophy. The winner was Linda Hall (42 points). Runners up were Katherine Price (41.5 points) and Julia Naas (40.5 points).

Kas Stone introduced our guest speaker, Thaddeus Holownia. Thaddeus spoke to the club about “Living a Creative Life” for most of the meeting. He discussed many of his projects, and the importance of printing our work in either print or book format. He advised us to keep our eyes and mind in tune to extract images from the world. Light and time is fleeting, so we should take advantage of situations as they arise. Bodies of work take time to create. His projects takes 2, 3, and sometimes 10 years to turn into a book or exhibit. Members can find more out about Thaddeus by visiting his web sites: holownia.com and anchoragepress.ca or his Facebook page facebook.com/thaddeus.holownia

Our meeting wrapped up with a slide show from the Brier Island field trip.
