We begin the New Year with our Shutterbug meeting tomorrow evening. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and hearing what Santa left in your stocking this holiday season. Our meeting will begin with a social hour from 5 – 6 p.m. tomorrow evening with guest speaker and meeting beginning at 7 p.m.. We will be meeting in the Holly Room at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. I will bring my new toys if you will bring yours.
Our 2012 – 2013 Challenge has reached the halfway mark and after six monthly challenges the lead has changed once again. For the fifth time over the past six monthly Challenges the lead has changed. We have a come from behind leader currently that is challenging our membership to rise to the occasion. A total of 1,685 votes have been tallied during the first six months but, only two members have accumulated over one hundred points to date, and then just barely! We are well on our way to exceeding the anticipated total of 3,000 votes total estimated earlier during our launch. Neither an announcement nor a reminder was issued during December during our Challenge. I, like most of you, had way too much on my plate. As anticipated the total number of images submitted and the total number of votes received was down from our monthly average but, that is also part of the Challenge. It did however provide me with a baseline set of statistics. Participation in the Challenge was down by 57% while voting in the Challenge was down by only 19%. The only conclusion I can draw at this point in time is that we were all too busy to take pictures but not too busy to support our club. Thank you for your support. With six more months to go it is still anybody’s ball game. I’m looking forward to seeing some great work over the
next six months.
