We, at the Houston Photographic Society, wish all of you and yours a most bountiful and happiest of Thanksgiving holidays.

We all have so many things to be thankful for — colleagues, friends, family, health, and fun camera equipment to name just a few. Whatever you are thankful for, we thank you for your interest and/or involvement with the Society.

Be safe and capture many photographic memories!

Field Trip: Civil War Reenactment

Civil War ReenactmentThis weekend is the Civil War Reenactment at the Liendo Plantation in Hempstead.

We can all meet up at the Ranchito Taqueria at 31515 FM 2920 Rd. in Waller for breakfast and gossip Saturday morning at 8 a.m. before heading to the event site.

Admission is $10 per person and gates open at 9 a.m. See you there!

Third Annual HPS December Party

Cafe AdobeThe third annual HPS December party will be held on December 16 (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at Café Adobe at 7620 Katy Freeway (at Silber Rd.—the Marq*E Entertainment Center). The café is directly across the plaza from the Edwards Cinema and right across the driveway from the southeast corner of the parking garage (free parking in the garage).

This location is easy to get to. It is the first exit when you take I-10 West from the 610 loop, or from downtown it is the first exit after 610, or from the west, take the Silber exit. The party is upstairs in the Acapulco Bar. This room is larger than we have had previously, and it also has an outdoor area, so we should have quite a bit less crowding.

HPS is paying just over half the cost of the food for this party. Paid HPS Members and guests (one per member, please) pay $10, which you may pay to Bernie Levy at the meeting this Tuesday or you can mail to him. For that you get fajitas (beef and chicken) and the usual Mexican food side stuff. There will also be a cash bar.

This will be the third year for this party, and if the last two are an indication, then it should be lots of fun for all, in an environment different from our monthly meetings. Our honorary members will be invited as well, so you can mingle with members, spouses, judges, and presenters. This is our only outside social event. No gifts.

Please RSVP ASAP that we can better judge how many people to plan for. If you want to mail your check, make it out to Houston Photographic Society and contact Bernie Levy for an address.

Monthly Print Competition – November 2010

Join us for the November 2010 print competition. HPS members may bring up to two total prints for review in their respective categories. A special category assignment may be one of the two prints. November’s special assignment is “Plains, Trains and Automobiles“.

PLEASE NOTE: We are meeting the third Thursday instead of the fourth Thursday this month because the Tracy Gee Community Center meeting place is closed the week of Thanksgiving.
