Spring Field Trip
Jake Mosser will be leading a field trip to Garden in the Woods in Framingham, MA on May 18, 2019. Visit Field Trips for details.

One Shot Competition
Well the competition is over and it wasn't pretty. At least for the women. They lost 16-9 which looks a closer score than it really was. It was a fun night (albeit sad), and the Club made out with the Dessert Cookoff. Check out a report on the activities as well as all the images on the One Shot Page. We will decide on the Projected Image Competition night whether to have this event again next year. Visit One Shot.

Projected Images
Change in People category
We received some comments and inquiries from some competitors regarding the combined class in the People category. After reviewing the October and November competitions, we have determined that there are enough images entered in Class B to allow them to be a standalone category in Class B. Class A and Masters People images will still be combined into one category called People. Individuals scores will be applied to the maker's accumulated totals within his or her class. We hope this will be fairer to all competitors.

Images from Recent Socials
Check out images taken at the recent Halloween party and the Holiday Banquet. Thanks to Tony Marino and Mike Burke for documenting fun evenings. Visit Socials and Banquets to look at the images.

PSA Portfolio Assessment - An Entrant's Guide
You may have read in the recent Filter that Ken Carlson recently learned that he was successful with a Gold level portfolio submission and has earned the GPSA distinction. Rick Cloran wrote the article which appears on page 65 of the Filter. The distinction that Ken has earned is a very big deal as there have only been 71 distinctions awarded worldwide and only 7 of those are on the Gold Level. Ken is the ONLY American to be recognized with the Gold distinction. Congratulations Ken!

Rick put together an Entrant's Guide to help those who may be interested in preparing and submitting a portfolio for a PSA Portfolio distinction. Visit Entrant's Guide (which is on the How to's page) to read about doing this.
