Congratulations to Our Members

IMG_5037This past weekend the annual PRPA (Prairie Region Photographic Arts) Outing took place at Candle Lake. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with photographers from Alberta and Saskatchewan. Twenty-nine participants gathered and explored the Candle Lake region. We visited an area few of us are familiar with and everyone’s  cameras had exceptional workouts! More details will be posted as I find time to process images.

With Friday’s AGM and elections out of the way Saturday was wide open for us to break into smaller carpool groups and head out to the suggested stops the Gleneath Camera Club had scouted out for us. The weather cooperated till late afternoon but nobody reported getting wet in the heavy downpour.

The evening promised to be filled with the banquet, Showmanship slide presentations set to music and the awards for competitions entered throughout the year. The images lined up along the walls of the room were impressive and demanded attention and careful viewing. It was a feast for the yes and an opportunity learn from others.

The Moose Jaw Camera Club has only been a PRPA member since the end of March this year. At that time we found out about membership and the opportunity to enter as a club. Within three days five photographers stepped up and responded to individual emails with two prints per person for a total of 10 entries for the club. Rob Harden and Anna Hergert traveled to Kindersley on March 28th to take in the Executive meeting and deliver the entries for the Gerry Fish Print Competition. Our club was one of 6 participating. And the competition was fierce!

Imagine my complete surprise when on Saturday night the results were announced. In the top 25 % of the Gerry Fish Print Competitions were Jess Zoerb and Jennifer Baker. Rob Harden won 1st for his landscape and Anna Hergert received a 1st in the Open category. Overall our club received the first place with the highest judging scores! Congratulations to Kelly Thorson, Jesse Zoerb, Jennifer Baker, Rob Harden and Anna Hergert. Thanks for stepping up to the plate and entering such strong images. This put the Moose Jaw Camera Club back on the map – we rock! We can now add “award winning” to the club’s achievements!

Our membership renewal is ready to be sent. I also highly encourage individual membership in this dynamic inter-provincial photography group! Consider the outing for mid-June 2016. The Rosetown Photography Club will be organizing the event. Stay tuned for details throughout the year.
