August Update

Our first live broadcast of a meeting is now available below for re-playing. There was a technical glitch at some point during the print competition. The studio’s internet router shut down without anyone noticing. The router was reset during our intermission and the digital competition was broadcast as part 2. FYI during the beginning of the meeting when private club business was being discussed the audio was muted. Don’t be concerned if you hear no sound for several minutes during part 1. The videos have now been edited to remove “dead air” and audio anomalies. The competition scores have been recorded and up-to-date results are available now.

Elections: Election of officers for a new 2-year term will take place in October. Now is the time to consider if you want to run or nominate someone for a position.

Holiday Party: We will continue with our tradition of a pot-luck style holiday party this year, however we have outgrown the space available at tRG studio. If anyone has any suggestions for a larger space that we can make use of we would like to hear your suggestions.

Live Broadcasts of Meetings

Beginning with this Friday’s meeting (08/17) our meetings will be broadcast live right here on our website. This will be an option for members who can’t attend but are able to watch from home. If you can’t watch live you can play it back later at your convenience. Once the meeting begins an embedded video feed will appear right here on the home page. The video will also be recorded and will be re-playable at any time.

Please wait until 7:00 pm to access the homepage because the video won’t appear if you log on early and wait for it. If you have already accessed the homepage prior to 7:00 pm then make sure to close your web browser and then re-open it at 7:00 pm. Depending on your web browser’s settings it’s still possible that you might not see the video when you access the homepage after 7:00 pm. If it is past 7:00 pm and you do not see a video feed on the homepage then your browser may be set to load a stale or cached version of the page. In that case use your browsers refresh option. (Usually the F5 key or the circular arrows icon). If the refresh option doesn’t work you may also need to clear your browser’s cache and then re-access the homepage. Refer to your browser’s help file or Google how to the clear the cache in your browser.

If you have technical difficulties viewing on our own website you can watch the video stream/replay on our YouTube channel:

Robert and I have already made a couple of test broadcasts to work out the technical aspects and everything is set to go. The test broadcasts have been deleted and can’t be viewed but the broadcasts of the meetings will remain online for later viewing.

In other news, the July competition scores have been posted and are available for viewing. This Friday’s competition subject is photojournalism – using a photograph to tell a story.
