5th Thursday Social Potluck, Swap Meet, Slideshow – January 30, 2020

NAPfS Networking Social potluck, with networking, gear & magazine swap, member slideshow, potluck event, and Visual Pursuits demos!

It’s a bonus January 30th meeting,  a networking, gear & magazine swap, slideshow, and potluck event! There never seems to be enough time to socialize anyway with the contest critiques and speakers, so this is your chance for NAPfS networking to meet new photo buddies! Bring some prints or a thumb drive with your favorite pictures and we’ll have a slide show. Bring any books, magazines, or old gear you want to swap or give away. We will order some pizza, but bring nonalcoholic beverage or snacks to share too.

Visual Pursuits Demos

As many of you know, our monthly competition (and eventually our entire website operation) is moving to Visual Pursuits (https://www.visualpursuits.com).  The VP website has many videos to show the use of their site, but there will be demos and a question/answer session at the meeting to familiarize everyone with the new site.  The NAPfS portion of this site is at http://napfs.visualpursuits.com.  Information on joining is at https://napfs.club/competitions/joining-napfs-visual-pursuits/.

Work can be on any medium, framed or not, just print it out and show us your stuff.
