HELLO fellow members,

NEW PROGRAM NEWS

I trust all Central Chapter members and their families had a relaxing Thanksgiving.

Our Everglades photo trip will commence Wed, Jan 21st. We shall meet for lunch at 12 PM at the “Rod and Gun Lodge”. The address is 200 Riverside Dr, in Everglades City, Fl. After touring this historic Lodge we shall proceed to the local Country Store that was established in the 19th century. There are many historic artifacts on display. Next we will drive So on Rt 41 to visit Clyde Butcher’s Photo Gallery for those who are interested. After that visit is concluded it may be a good idea to check in at  the Quality Inn, 333 S E 1st Ave 33034. My double rate is $203.32. It is important to book ASAP as that area will be in season, rates will go up and many motels will be full. I booked on line, hotels.com, Tel No 800-246-8357. Mention my name and tell them you are part of a photo group. For those interested, we can do a late afternoon shoot in the Park.

Thurs A M we will eat then drive a short distance to Shark Valley. We will want to be there promptly  at 8 A M when the gate is opened. Bring your Sr. Pass  as this is a Federal facility. You will have 3 options in this Park, walk, ride a bike, rentals are available, or ride the tram, a 13 mile trip. In my opinion the first 400 yards. Is usually the best shooting. After our morning shoot we can eat, download and take a nap. Some of you might want to participate in another evening shoot. After dinner and a good night sleep we will have breakfast, check out then drive to the “Anhinga  Trail” for our morning shoot. We should see a number of Gators and wading birds. After lunch will be the official end of the shoot however my roommate, Lynn Thompson, Jim & Rosalie Mahoney and I will drive to Marco Island to shoot Burrowing Owls, 131 nests, a mating pr of Bald eagles and shore and wading birds on the beach. You might want to bring a pr of Water sandals or shoes.  We have made reservations at Conty’s Motel, 11238 Tamiami Trail (Rt 41) in Naples, Fl. Our cost was $86.90 including breakfast. The Tel No is 239-774-3707. We will shoot Sat morning as well. Enjoy a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you on Jan 21st.

As a Chapter member, you can now have a personal gallery on the PSA website that is linked to our Chapter’s main page.

To create a gallery, you are asked to furnish three things; a portrait of yourself, a biography of approximately 250 words (don’t be modest) and six images.  The portrait and images should be sized at a maximum 1024 pixels horizontally and 768 pixels vertically.  These items will be used to create your gallery page.  These pages should be kept fresh by changing photos every three months.

Setting up the galleries is easy.  Go to: www.psa-photo.org/member-galleries/get-chapter-member-entry.php     Once there, you can upload your images and type your biography.

The system to do this is already in place and galleries can be set up now.  Please allow two days for the galleries to be posted from the time that they are submitted.


Jim Mahoney, Chairman
