Photographing National Parks by Chris Nicholson
Chris gave a very informative and inspiring talk on Monday, February 5 about photographing in our national parks. He has given us permission to put his notes up on our website for a short time. Visit How To's to read these notes.

Super Bowl Social
A new social this year was a Super Bowl party! The Saturday before the actual event, we had cocktails (beer and wine), dinner, and dessert. We cheered our team on with some fun videos of past championships and some other funny videos. The hall was decorated with our team paraphenalia. We all had a good time, but, alas and alack, our beloved Patriots just couldn't quite pull it off. It saddened us all, but there's always next year!!!

And while you are on the Socials page, scroll down and checkout the recap of the 2017 Halloween party. It was great fun! Visit Socials to get details and sign up.
