February 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to a brand New Year.

Next Club night is on Thursday 7 February starting at 7.30 pm in Classroom 1, St John Ambulance Station, Hatea Drive, Whangarei.

Please bring along a print to enter the Best Holiday Shot competition, which will be judged on the floor.
Also bring along any items you might want to show in a Tech Talk - we all love gadgets so would love to see what Santa brought you.  
Tonight you should upload a photo of your Self Assignment and entries for the Open competition.
The Self Assignment is 3-5 images mounted on a 16 x 20 board on a theme you have chosen for yourself. Presentation is very important. Good luck! There is a $2 fine for non-entries, so it's worth making the effort for this competition.

Winter Wonderland 
June/July 2019

After a long hot summer, we figure you might be keen to try and find some snow. So we're heading down to National Park, probably staying in Pipers Lodge and will have easy day walks to the many gorgeous places around the mountains. 

Tiritiri Matangi Island
August/September 2019

This popular trip to the bird-filled island of Tiritiri Matangi is held annually. Go on a day trip or spend a few days on the island to really get close to nature. 
Christmas Barbecue
The Christmas barbecue at Whangarei Falls was a very pleasant evening with shared salads and other goodies at one of the large new picnic tables. Thanks to all who attended.

The Christmas photo competition was won by Donna Russell with her "Santa Tui", and Rose Tanta
u was runner up.
