This week’s Stony Brook Camera Club meeting, March 7th, is CANCELED due to the impending snow storm. Our judge does not want to drive in the snow and I think that is a very wise decision. Please stay home and be safe.

The 2013 Greater Lynn International judging is now history. Individual report notices will be going out to each member who entered but here are the statistics for the club overall:
37 clubs participated this year, 17 from New England, 1 other USA, 1 Cyberspace (whatever that means), and 18 Foreign.
One of the foreign clubs, the Shangtuf Image and Art Club from China, was the largest participating club with 75 members.
The largest New England club and second largest overall was the Photographic Society of Rhode Island with 40 entrants.
During the judging, each of the three judges score an image between 2 and 5, giving a total possible score of 6 – 15 points. A score of 12 points was required for an image to be accepted for use in the resulting audiovisual exhibition program.
Club scores are determined by totaling the four scores for each club entrant, then taking the highest 7 of those totals for the Club Total. Each individual entrant had a possible 60 points for all four images. Michael Goodman, of both the Gateway Camera Club and the Boston West Camera Club, was the highest individual entrant with a total of 53 points out of a possible 60 points.
The top 3 Clubs were:
1st - Cape Cod Viewfinders 25 entrants 333 points total.
2nd - Gateway 15 entrants 331 points total
3rd – Merrimack Valley 32 entrants 330 points total
Stony Brook tied for 6th with 28 entrants and 326 points total. Our 28 members was the fourth largest club this year.
The 7 members whose scores were used for that total were:
Debra Boucher 46 points 2 acceptances
Andre Bourque 46 point 2 acceptances, 1 which received an Honor Award
Daniel Charbonnet 47 points 3 acceptances, 1 which received an Honor Award
Denise Duhamel 46 points 2 acceptances
Wendy McIntosh 48 points 3 acceptances, 1 which received a Judge’s Choice Award
Henny Smith 47 points 3 acceptances
Monica Verma 46 points 3 acceptances

All members (20 of you) who had acceptances will have their images included in the audiovisual program being developed from the acceptances. This show will be presented on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 2:00 PM and again on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM. There is an admission fee of $8.00 per person.

The Jan – March 2013 issue of the newsletter has been posted to the website.
This issue is chock full of information, it is a must read!
The program for the February 28 program will be a repeat of our popular “Talking Photography” evening.
We will have five roundtables (actually they’ll be rectangular), each moderated by an experienced club member as follows:
Club members can move among the five tables, where sessions will last approximately 20 minutes each, allowing you to spend time in each area that interests you. Questions are encouraged, and there is no question that will be considered too elementary or fundamental. So come prepared to have some of your photographic mysteries resolved.
Based on previous years’ experience, this will be an enriching evening for all.
