Allan and Heather Turnbull will take us on a digital camera shopping tour at the Dec. 6 General Meeting. Just in time for the holiday gift season, they will discuss digital cameras from phones to DSLRs (digital single lens reflex). Besides discussing what’s available, what’s new, and what’s intriguing, they will share their personal experiences on what cameras would be a perfect gift! Their presentation also will touch briefly on the history of cameras.

WPCUG members Allan and Heather Turnbull are steeped in photography and run our digital photography workshop on the fourth Thursday of each month. Allan retired from MTA and is a longtime photography enthusiast. Heather is an art school graduate, who later worked at MetLife in its graphics department. Back in the day, they remember bringing their kids to an Apple computer club where they used early Macintosh computers and its predecessor—the Lisa.

ORIENTEERING


January 3, 2019 @ 7 pm

Keller Williams Realty
120 Bloomingdale Rd. ****location map***
White Plains, NY 10605


Plan now to attend!


Do you like to travel and explore new places? Do maps puzzle you? Or do you want to learn more?
Ed Hicks of Orienteering Unlimited will illuminate the fascinating world of cartography. He will explore navigation and map-handling techniques, modern map-making procedures, map history and provide practical information. The presentation will explore how map making changed dramatically in recent years due to computers and technology.

Those in attendance will also get a chance to put into practice map handling and navigation skills so they will feel comfortable reading maps.

Ed discovered the sport of Orienteering while attending a conference in 1973. This experience dramatically changed his life. In 1979 he founded Orienteering Unlimited, a company that provides navigation supplies, training programs, and has produced a wide variety of maps. Ed has conducted hundreds of workshops over the years. He bought his first computer in 1979 and initiated computer education in his school. He is a longtime member of WPCUG. Ed is also the North American service and distributor for map-making software.
