TWPC Members!

Wednesdays!!!

Just in case you missed the news at our last meeting, we will be meeting The 2nd Wednesday of the month going forward…except in June when we will meet on June15th! The change needed to be made to accommodate The Glades agenda and allow us to continue to meet at The Glade at no charge!

We are moving forward with more fun and learning activities this month! Saturday, June 11th, is our Lightroom workshop led by Mac Rodgers! And then on Saturday, June 18th, Vance Schwantes will be leading a workshop on Off Camera Flash and Studio Lighting.

Both workshops will be held at George and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library, 8125 Ashlane Way, The Woodlands from 10am to 3 pm with lunch provided! There is a $15 fee for each workshop. An email has been sent out and the workshops are posted on Facebook with the joy form link to sign up!

And, there’s more!! On Saturday, June 25, 2022 we will head to Galveston to photograph the carved trees via golf cart and have lunch at Shrimp N Stuff after we're finished. This trip will be limited to 12 people due to golf cart availability and seating. See the email and Facebook posting for details!

The WPC June 2022 field trip will be to Galveston, TX to photograph the carved trees via golf cart on Saturday, June 25, 2022 with lunch at Shrimp N Stuff after we're finished.

This trip will be limited to 12 people due to golf cart availability and seating. We have only 2 spots left at this time. However if you are interested, please still let me know and I will start a waiting list if needed.

Here is the website for the carved trees https://www.visitgalveston.com/blog/take-a-self-guided-tree-sculpture-tour/ .

The cost of this trip is approximately $20 for golf cart rental + your own lunch.

For those who would like to carpool or caravan to Galveston, we will meet at the Woodlands Methodist Church parking lot across from The Loft for a 7:30 a.m. departure. If you plan to drive directly to Galveston on your own, please let me know so that we won't be waiting in the church parking lot for you.

The address of the golf cart rental is 4102 Seawall Blvd. Suite 100, Galveston, TX 77550. We will meet there when they open at 9:00 a.m.

Some of the 2022 annual contest categories that you might find on this field trip include Architecture (many beautiful Victorian homes), TWPC Field Trips, Open, Creative Digital Manipulation, Doors & Windows, and Wild Card - Smart Phone Photography, and maybe even some Wildlife. If you would like to join us, please email me at judogal@att.net or respond in the comments of the Facebook event. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at judogal@att.net.

Hope to see you on this trip!
