Your SBCC membership now includes the opportunity to participate in four types of activities that will be offered throughout the year. These include but may not be limited to field trips, workshops, presenter programs, and life member seminars. All of these events will be posted on our website home page, facebook, and in our club calendar (which is located on the home page under the calendar tab in the top menu bar) with a sign-up link and the date that registration will open.
If you wish to attend an activity which requires you to sign-up or has a fee, you MUST use the website link to do this. Signups for events will open at 5 pm on the Thursday night 3 weeks prior to the scheduled workshop, and will be on a first come, first serve basis if there is maximum number that can attend. Fees will be paid using the website via paypal. You will receive an email confirming your registration for the event when you have paid the fee and registered.
If special equipment, skills or limitations are needed or suggested, it will be mentioned in the program’s description. Please make sure to read that in full before signing up. There may also be an additional supply/participation/location fee payable to the presenter which will also be included in the information before you sign up. Your registration fee is non-refundable; you are responsible for finding a replacement if you cannot attend or forfeiting your fee.
Because of liability issues, only members may attend.
Signups for all activities except Presenter Programs will follow the Activities Rules*
Please see the descriptions below:
Field trips are opportunities to join other members to shoot on locations outside the club's regular meetings. Suggestions for locations are welcome and can be mentioned or emailed to the field trip organizers. In most cases, field trips will be half day events, but longer trips may be included. The trips may include a specific topic to be practiced or technique to be learned or simply focus on the location and its appeal. Field trips will not require a fee in most cases, but if the venue has an admission fee, it will be the responsibility of the member.
These will be presented on various topics by our members who have volunteered and are not paid for this. In the past, they have included portrait photography, landscape photography, black and white photography, video photography, Lightroom instruction, to mention a few. These may be entirely lecture, or an out in the field session, or a combination of the two. These programs will require a minimum payment of $15 per session, and website registration, and will have a limit on the number of attendees.
Life Member Seminars*
Our life members have a wealth of information to share. This is an opportunity for them to provide an educational program for the membership. This could be in the form of a lecture, demonstration, field excursion, or any combination. The presenter will set the fee, if any, venue, and number of attendees.
Some of our guest speakers at our regular club meetings may offer us an additional opportunity to join them for a private workshop. In this case, the speaker will set the fee, venue, number of attendees, and type of program. The registration process for these programs will be announced at club meetings, posted on the website home page, Facebook, and in the calendar.
All activities signups by members will open at 5pm on the Thursday night 3 weeks prior to the scheduled workshop and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Payment via a paypal link associated with the event will be required to secure your registration unless it is a free event. In most cases, the registration will close on the Thursday night prior to the scheduled date of the workshop.
You will be notified by email that you have been registered. Please remember that if a fee has been paid, it is non-refundable, however you may allow another member to take your place. If you assign an alternate to attend in your place, please notify the workshop organizer of your intent. It is your responsibility to obtain a refund from your replacement.
If due to unforeseen circumstances, like bad weather or presenter illness, the workshop is cancelled, a full refund will be given to registrants.
