JUNE 21ST FIELD TRIP UPDATE - MEET AT MYERS RANCH OPEN SPACE PARK

I hope a number of you are planning on the field trip at 8 a.m. on this coming Saturday, June
21st. We need to announce a change in MEETING PLACE. Originally slated for Lair 'O the
Bear Open Space Park, we are changing the field trip to MYERS RANCH OPEN SPACE PARK.
This park is found at Aspen Park just off Highway 285 at the South Turkey Creek Road exit.
Wildflowers have dried up at Lair 'O the Bear and the trail is hot. North slope and varied
habitat make MYERS RANCH a better choice. Please email me with any questions. Sorry for

JUNE ASSIGNMENT

The theme for June, "B&W Landscape". Monthly themes, directed at broadening our interests and expanding our skills, seem to not always appeal to all members. Hence, some changes have been made to entry format. Three entries per member will continue. In addition to monthly theme, there will also be an "Open" category for any photos not meeting theme criteria. Entries for Critique and Competition can be entered in any combination of the two categories, totaling a maximum of three entries. Theme entries will fall into "A" (experienced) and "B" (beginner) categories.
