Presidents Letter May 2022

Hi all,
This May will mark the first in-person club meetings in over two years.  I wonder if we all aged well? 🙂
Important note — the order of our club meetings will change this month. Competition Night and Photo Forum are switching places.
And Challenge Night and Photo Forum will be in-person.  See below for details.
Week 1 — Thursday, May 5
In-Person at the Church.  (2425 Harvest Lane, Springfield at 7:00)
Challenge Night.  The theme for this month is “Flower Power”.  
Week 2 — Tuesday, May 10
Education Night. Alison Mees on “Living the African Dream”.
Week 3 — Thursday, April 19
In-Person at the Church. 
Photo Forum 
Week 4 — Thursday, April 26
Competition Night.  The variable category theme for the month is monochrome.
The Courthouse — 
May — Andy Nowlen
June — Rochelle, Anne, Chris and Carla
There are no open spots for the rest of the year.
The Art Center — 
I’m seeing who is interested in showing at the Art Center on Pearl.  This is NOT a sure thing, but if we have enough interest, I’ll see if we can get a show up.  Right now, there are five interested.  We could probably use a few more.
Field Trips

Johnson Brothers, Wednesday, May 18.  Carla is the lead on this one.
Sister’s Rodeo, June 9th.  Rochelle and I are the contacts for this one.
Duchess Horse Sanctuary, July (date TBD).  Susan Starr and I both have information on this one.  Please let me know if you’re interested.  The cost per person is $75 for a two day event.

Yosemite, March 5-10, 2023.  I’m the contact.  There are still rooms available at the Yosemite Lodge.  
I hope to see you all this month.  Either on-line or in-person, or both.
