As the summer is winding down, we are getting ready for the coming PGNS 2020-21 season. Our Program is now available on our website. You can download the program from the Schedule page, just follow the instructions under the calendar. The program may change, so please always check the online version just in case…
Note, due to the pandemic, our regular meetings will be virtual until the further notice. Once it’ll be safe to gather at the museum and the museum opens its doors for events like ours, we will inform you about the changes.
Looking forward to seeing you (online) at our Season Opener at 7:30 pm on September 9.
As September is approaching quickly and Covid-19 is still hanging around, this coming 2020/21 season will be somewhat different from usual. The Museum of Natural History informed us that they will not open for events at least until December. We already know that a second wave might be coming in or after November, so the rest of the season will not be easier either.
Your Executive team has been discussing the options and it seems that we’ll be using WebEx or similar solution for our meetings. You have probably attended several photography related webinars during the lockdown, our meetings will be similar to those.
Competitions are integral part of our program and this year the judging will go online. We have been looking around for judging software and ended up making one locally (thanks to Darryl) and this solution satisfies most of the requirements we have got used to over the years.
During the field trips we’ll need to follow the provincial guidelines and that can change during the season, depending on the actual Covid situation.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
The Portrait Lighting Workshop scheduled for this evening, January 5, 2020 at the NS Museum of Natural History has been cancelled due to the inclement weather.
