Several members and some of the students from Joe LeFevre's Workshop class were inspired to get together for an outing to Hemlock Lake to photograph the Milky Way during the New Moon. We were invited to member, Jim Hooper's, home for a pot luck and met members from the Finger Lakes Photography Guild there as well. Joe came to join us and we had perfect weather. You can see some of the results on the event

Finger Lakes Members were treated to another great picnic at Linda and Craig Hutchings campground. It was perfect weather and the horseshoe tournament was intense. Deep fried turkey was cooked to perfection by Craig and everyone brought delicious food to share. Neil wasn't able to make the picnic this year so our photograph was taken by none other than Kevin Carlson! Thanks to all for a great time.
