NON-CLUB EVENTS / OPPORTUNITIES


We are always on the lookout for events that are photographically interesting.  If you know of any upcoming festivals, fairs, dedications, historical commemorations, bird migrations, civic events, etc., please bring them to the attention of members of the Executive Committee.  Events with enough potential general membership interest might result in a formal club Shoot Out being planned.  For smaller, or more specialized events of less broad membership interest, the event might be publicized to all members via email, newsletter and/or notice on the PPC Website cover page "Snapshots" news section and with more detail in this section.

INFORMATION BULLETIN #1

This is the 6th year the Coastal Camera Club is hosting this exciting event. As in past years, the highlight will be presentations by four nationally-known photographers:

JOE BRADY: a photographer, educator, author and workshop leader speaking about an approach to creating images that make you smile. Joe is our keynote speaker,

RAD DREW: a well-known expert in the growing field of Smartphone Photography, talking about how to use your smartphone to create images with impact,


CHASE FAHSBENDER: a specialist in street photography from NYC, sharing his story on how street photography invigorated his passion for his art, and


JAY FLEMING: a local photographer who has achieved national recognition through his passion for the Chesapeake Bay and photographing people who make their living on and around the Bay. He’ll share that with us.


The event will be held again at the Atlantic Sands Hotel, right on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. The doors will open at 8:00am when you’ll be able to have a beverage while you visit our Photo Flea Market and stop by and chat with any of our exhibitors. So far B&H, Fujifilm, Parcel Plus, Cameras,etc., and Tamron will be on hand with more to come. You can also peruse a selection of winning images from CCC members in the Gallery on the 4th Floor.

The program starts at 9 am and will conclude with a drawing for a wonderful selection of door prizes around 6:30. We’ll take a 2-hr. lunch break at 12, and this year we’re happy to say that in addition to nearby eateries, the hotel’s restaurant will be open. You’ll have plenty of time to revisit the exhibitors, and, if you’d like, get one or two of your images that you brought along critiqued by our presenters in the 4th Floor Gallery.

Tickets are now on sale, same prices as the last time; $25 ‘til then end of February, $30 after that including at the door (but cash only).

TOBYHANNA MILLPOND #1 ICE HARVEST 2019 WRAP-UP
From:  The Leonard Family and the Coolbaugh Township Historical Association

Thank you to everyone who came out to experience the century-old practice of ice harvesting on Saturday. From the veteran ice harvesters who shared their stories, to the first-timers, and to youngsters who cut ice and guided the 450 cakes of 8” thick ice into the icehouse, all had a great time. We especially appreciate all who helped in the ice harvest preparations and managing the event, lunches, breaks, etc. Preparing for the ice harvest was especially challenging this year due the heavy rain; we had some trouble starting the 1919 Gifford Wood ice saw, but we did manage to get 28 tons of ice into the icehouse. Three fine Norwegian Fjord horses from Black Horse Farm Carriages pulled three cakes at a time into the icehouse. Best of all, we again made some new friends, connected with old ones, and all had fun despite having to brave temperatures hovering around 20 degrees.

The next harvest is scheduled for January 25, 2020 weather permitting.
