SRPS Field Trip Update


As promised, the field trips for the club are going to be published on a three-month rolling basis. This will allow members to plan ahead and carpool together if they choose. In general, there will be two trips a month with an optional third one possibly thrown in. All of these trips will be eligible for adding images to the end of month Zoom meeting.

The time/date for each event is finite either because it happens one a specific date or because that way members can plan an event get-together. For those who can’t attend on the given date, just set up a convenient one for yourself that is close to the suggested date.

The end of month Zoom meeting will occur on the last Friday of the month at 5 pm. Now that this meeting will cover 2-3 events. A max of 6 images total will be allowed in the interest of saving time. Image prep and upload procedure has not changed. The meeting will be recorded so any member of the club can revisit the images later. As a reminder, these images that are there to be shared, not there to be critiqued.

The rolling schedule for the next 3 months will also appear on the club calendar.
