APLCC News -- April 2012

The first ever APLCC walkabout is scheduled to take place on Saturday April 14 at 10:00am.  This first walkabout will be at Sheppard's Bush, a local Aurora conservation area. It'll give us a chance to shoot some great photos and get to know one another a bit better.

I have set up a registration page for people who are interested in being a part of this first outing.  To keep track of who's going to be there it is very important to register if you're going to join us.  There is a registration option under the Calendar menu called registration #1 as well as a registration block on the front page.  If you click on any one of these options you'll be taken to the signup sheet.  Be aware that in order to see the signup form you must be logged in.

Once signed up for the activity you will get a verification email confirming your attendance.  A day before the outing you will get another email as a reminder that the outing is coming up.

We will  rendezvous at 10:00 am at the Tim Horton's right across from the St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School (304 Wellington Street East).  Anyone who needs a ride please email me (reelstories@rogers.com) to let me know.  I can't guarantee that I can arrange a ride but I'll do my best to get everybody there who needs a lift.

The basic plan is to go out and shoot for about two hours and then go off for a coffee and a snack somewhere.  We can either go back to Tim Horton's or if people prefer there's also Second Cup and a few other options.

If anyone has any suggestions to make this first outing go smoothly please post them in the comments section at the bottom of the registration form.


It is now possible to upload multiple images simultaneously to the members' photo galleries instead of choosing one photo at a time.  You will notice that the look of the upload function is a bit different, but still fairly intuitive.  Please let me know if you're having problems navigating the the new upload module and I will create a walkthrough showing how to use it.  Also, since this is a bit of a beta module please let me know if you encounter any bugs when using.  I've done some testing but I might have missed something so please let me know if there are any issues.


Finally, the monthly challenge for April is "Spring".  Please remember that you can upload a maximum of three files to the monthly challenge gallery.  With spring in the air there are a lot of photo opportunities out there so I'm really looking forward to seeing your wonderful images.
