Treasurer’s Report     
           Treasurer, Dale Wood, gave the Treasurer’s report.  We have a bank balance of $997.01.  Dennis reported that the audit committee reviewed the Treasurer’s records and found the records to be in good order. 
    
Program       
           The evening’s program was presented by Brittany Butler of Vintage Creek Photography.  Brittany specializes in underwater portrait photography and presented a fascinating program on how to take underwater photos.  

Business:
           Dennis reported that because of a conflict, Dave Wilson, our scheduled speaker for April, will present his program in March.  We will have our “Get to Know Your Camera” session in April.  The purpose of the April meeting is to assist photographers who may have questions about how to operate their cameras.


            Dennis also reported that one of the San Antonio photo clubs has issued a challenge for a “shoot-out” between our two clubs.  Dennis will get more details and report to the club in March.

            Homer Gilbert stated that he would organize some field trips for the club if the members will give him some suggestions of places they would like to go.
