Mark Buelsing at markb@letitshine.biz asked for photos of cars, auto shows, and auto events to be submitted to gocarshow.com.

Old Business:

Print night is not being discontinued, and members are certainly encouraged to do prints and bring them, in addition to submitting them digitally, but the judging and scoring methodology has not been finalized.

A list of businesses that print and the club’s history will be added to the club’s website.

Future presentations on how to print will occur.

New business:

Leftovers from ECAC, including PSA magazines, leftover prints from past competitions, and other equipment, were picked up, given away, or discarded.

Deb Marvin is doing an assessment on the old laptop.

Dan Slusher is Chairman of the committee for next year’s competition subjects.  Members should email their ideas for subjects to Dan.

More information is to come about the Evendale Photo Exhibit.

Many thanks to Dennis Bray, Glen Kindness, Karen Kindness, and Mark Buelsing for all their time and effort to keep the club operating during COVID and Alan Lloyd for the informative history of the club.
