June club outing - Glenelg

Club outing to Glenelg

Decent turnout considering the weather forecast. Had a great time - excellent reflections in the marina. 

When the weather got drizzly, the group had an excellent late morning tea at the multi-award-winning Orange Spot Bakery.

Many thanks to the members who were able to attend this outing and huge thanks to Colin for hosting!

A night out with a difference!

Our recent club meeting was spent outside the club rooms and we ventured out to the wharf where Torrens Island Markets are held.

We met early to catch the sunset and do some night photography - some of us even got to experience a bit of light painting!

The evening was a lot of fun, even though it was very chilly, with the light painting being performed by our Treasurer, David Sandison.

All up, we had 17 members come out at various stages through the night and brave the cold to participate in the night's activities.  Many thanks to David Sandison for organising the night and performing the light painting for us.  There were several members who experienced light painting for the first time and enjoyed themselves immensely.

I think we may have to try this again soon, maybe when it is not quite so cold.
