Thanks to all that attended last Friday night’s video meeting. We will have a video meeting this Friday night as a makeup for the missed competition night of March. It will also serve as our first test of a video conference competition night. If you did not attend the last video meeting and are unfamiliar with the technology we are using then please go to the newly published page on our website that has some instructions and links to some tutorials. It’s actually very easy to use.
Because this will be our first test of a video competition meeting please understand that in order to accommodate the fact that it may take extra time to accomplish some tasks and deal with any technical issues that arise we will be limiting the entries. As we smooth out the process we expect to increase the number of entries allowed at future meetings.
Participation will be simple. Join the meeting by simply clicking the invitation link at the bottom of this message. You can attend the meeting from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. It’s best to use a device that has a camera and microphone. Refer to our website page for detailed information. All scheduled video meetings will also be posted in advance on the home page of our website and you can join the meeting from there if you wish. During this meeting Jim, Robert, and Lynn will be the judges. If you need technical assistance during the meeting you may use the chat function in the Zoom interface to privately contact Bryan S for help.
If you wish to submit image files for competition the detailed instructions follow. For this particular meeting 2 digital entries will be allowed per member. One assigned entry and one general entry.
Images must be submitted via email to mytbcc@gmail. Image file attachments should be a maximum size of 10 MB per file to accommodate the email submission process. Depending on your service provider you may be able attach 2 files to a single message or you may need to send them in separate messages. There is an image at the bottom of this message that shows exactly what to do in Lightroom to prepare your image files appropriately for submission. In the body of your email please follow this format to ensure that we have the necessary information from you:
Your name (This is important because your email address may be different from your name and we need to make sure we can you can give you your score.)
Image One – Assigned or General
Image One – Title (Make absolutely sure the digital file is named identically – this is very important.)
Image Two – Assigned or General
Image Two – Title (Make absolutely sure the digital file is named identically – this is very important.)
Please note that if you do not do this part correctly we may not have time to contact you for corrections in order to be able to include your submission(s) in the meeting.
There is currently a deadline for submissions for all competition meetings of Thursday midnight prior to the day of competition. This is because we have to setup some special scoring systems to accommodate the new meeting format and we need plenty of time on Friday in advance of the meeting to have everything prepared.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the meeting on Friday night. Here is the invitation information for the meeting:
