----------- UPCOMING EVENTS -----------


Next Meeting:-July 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM



1. ICE CREAM SOCIAL: Come enjoy ice cream and goodies at this annual event

2. PROGRAM: “Tips for Great Wildlife Photography” by Bill Shreve. Bill will present his approach to wildlife photography, especially in the Refuge. Though he primarily enjoys photographing birds, he shoots all kinds of wildlife from bees to bison. Bill will discuss equipment, safety, how to find wildlife, what settings he uses, best times, composition, helpful smartphone apps and more. He will bring equipment, both photographic and hiking, to show some his favourite techniques. He will show us how to be successful while on a photographic budget. Bill will share how he learned to combine his love of hiking with family time and his camera. Bill will invite the audience to share their experiences and techniques as well. Don’t miss this presentation—you’ll learn a lot!"

3. SPECIAL PRESENTATION- You'll see many photographs taken by the 10 members who attended the Retrieval Dog Training session recently. They had a great time and the dogs were amazing.

The winner of the last Photo Challenge was Jimmy Monk.

-----------DUES-----------


You do not have to pay dues or have a membership card to attend regular monthly meetings. Everyone is welcome. Meetings are free and open to the public without cost or obligation.

However, many great benefits are available to those who pay dues. Membership cards will be issued to dues-paid members and are required to: borrow library items, borrow equipment, attend free special workshops, attend free field trips, display in the WWPS tent at the AFA Festival, use our matting/framing room and free supplies, etc.

Dues are due in January of each year- Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer at least 10 hours each year to help with our club events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that's how we are able to keep dues so low!



----------- LIBRARY -----------


The following people have library items overdue:

NONE, THANK YOU EVERYONE

Returning items: Do not wait until the next meeting to return items. Use our 24-hour drop box, located in the mail slot in the garage door at 323 NW 35th st., one block north of Comanche County Hospital on 35th st.



----------- OTHER INFORMATION -----------

Volunteering is the price we all pay to enjoy the benefits of WWPS, so please pitch in and help

We need YOU to help make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do.

If you make a presentation, display your photographs anywhere, teach a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know because our club gets funding for presentations done by our members. Contact a WWPS officer for more info.
