October Meeting

Thanks to the October meeting speaker Devin Munroe who discussed “Shooting with Spheres.” Ceil Heller was elected to an at-large position on the Board. The December Big Cookie theme will be Smoke. Following discussion regarding using fog to meet the theme, the assembled MMPC members decided that the announced theme of Smoke is limited to smoke. Winners of the Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice will receive awards suitable for display, instead of a cookie. There was discussion of a proposal for a monthly themed photo challenge. Details will follow.
