   ASC Texas Gulf Coast weekend fun
   Nineteen ASC members and relatives
participated in the club 2002 coast out-
ing that took place in Corpus Christi,
Texas on Friday through Sunday, Sep-
tember 27-29.
  The venue was complete with superb
weather perfectly designed for land-
scapes, black & white, infrared, archi-
tectural antiquities, people photography
and much more.
  The schedule included photography
from sunrise to sunset and even after-
ward around Chorpus Christi and Mus-
tang Island.
  The long weekend was filled with
many outstanding photographic oppor-
tunities. See page 7 for a collection of
images from the coast.
  Those attending were Alan and Mary          The Austin Shutterbug Club Corpus Corpus Christi weekend outing included, from left:

                                       Minutes of the September 12, 2002, Meeting

   Shirley Loflin, President of ASC, called the meeting to order at 7:08 p.m. Eighteen guests were introduced and welcomed by
Charlaine Matthews. They were: Paul Munsch, Jane Moss, Monica Rosco, Dan Emerson, Mike Stone, Aleita White, Shaoxiong
Yang, Chris Dietche, Jennifer Hale, Kumar Pandian, Peggy Hersich, and D. O. Nan.
   Eddie Jennings, Sue Ann Chandler Steve White, Fritz Meitzen, Frederick Fung and Dan Collier also visited and joined as
new members of the club. Club attendance was 65. Several visitors remarked they attended because they had seen the club’s
website. (Thanks, Kevin!)
   Shirley thanked Alan Hann and Glenda Embree for providing refreshments for the evening. Linda & Gary Alford and Tarra
& David Warnke will provide refreshments for the October meeting. Shirley solicited volunteers to assist with Christmas Party
planning. Linda Alford, Pat Johnson, Phyllis Rummel, and Glenda Embree volunteered.
   Minutes from the August meeting were published in the newsletter and accepted without correction. Treasurer Lois Schubert
reported the club has a total of 84 members; it has $12.49 in the kitty and $723.64 in its checking account.
   Vice President Pat Johnson announced next month’s program will be presented by ASC member Bassett Maguire. He will do
a demonstration of the procedure of digital printing from beginning to end.
   GSCCC Representative William Ricks provided August 2002 GSCCC results. David Cree had 1st Honorable Mention with
a large color print. William gave ASC’s standing among other clubs–we rate in the top 10 in several categories.
   Newsletter Editor Brian Loflin thanked contributing members for articles. He also discussed the agenda for the upcoming
Corpus Christi weekend field trip. Sign-ups were taken for motel rooms which had been reserved at a group rate.
   Brian also discussed proposed changes in meeting procedures. The club has grown—more time is needed for programs and
competition. Suggestions from the recent leadership meeting were:
         1.Program one month and competition the next.
         2.Images would be submitted at one meeting (or given to competition chair prior to judging date),
             judged off premise by trained judges (any member can attend), and then critiqued at the next meeting.
         3.No change, except images must be logged in prior to 7 p.m.
   There was discussion. C.A. expressed concern that twice as much time would be involved for the competition chairmen.
David Cree expressed concern that judges would discuss images during the judging process. Brian assured members that the
judges would not converse until after judging when they prepare their critiques. Brian addressed Tarra’s concern that new
judges will be trained.
   Voting was held, and the results were:
         Option 1. Alternating months - 8 votes;
         Option 2. Judging off-premise - 30 votes;
         Option 3. No changes; images in by 7 p.m. - 3 votes.
   Shirley again asked for recommendations for a larger meeting place.
   A motion was made at the leadership meeting that there be no changes in dues ($20 individual; $30 family), but they would
be paid on a calendar year basis due in January of each year. Mid-year joiners would be prorated by six months. The member-
ship approved this motion overwhelmingly.
   Shirley displayed a recent Austin American-Statesman article with C. A. Thorne’s winning “9-11” photo.
   The fall scavenger hunt will be held on October 19, and the November meeting will be a viewing of the images. Brian gave
a brief definition of a “photography scavenger hunt.” Thirty-two attendees indicated an interest in going. Wayne Hillman and
Brian have selected the location; it will be announced in the October meeting just prior to the trip.
   Pat Johnson introduced ASC member Becky Vertrees who presented a slide program on her visit to Egypt and Israel. Becky
had maps for everyone showing the locations she had visited. The group broke for refreshments at 8:45 p.m. After the break,
door prizes for the month went to Betty McCreary, Max Peebles and Shirley Loflin.
   Club competition began with B&W. Judges were David Pinckney, Lela Jane Tintsman and Rose Epps.
   The meeting was adjourned at 10:10 p.m.

        Respectfully submitted,
