2017 GTCCC Fall Retreat – October 13-14, 2017

Welcome to our second annual fall retreat. This year, we are holding it at the fabulous Taboo Muskoka Resort near Gravenhurst on October 13, 14, 15th. This coincides with their famous Cranberry Festival which will present other photographic opportunities besides the fall colours in Ontario’s north.

Our line up activities include a Raptor Portrait shoot on site, Keynotes speakers with Ariel Estulin on Astro Photography and Andrew Collett on Landscape Photography with both keynotes leading hands-on sessions out in the field. We will also have breakout sessions on Lightroom and Photoshop with Leif Petersen and Bharat Mistry. There will be free time built in for you to explore Gravenhurst and Bala for their Cranberry Festival activities. You will also get a chance to explore the natural wonders and wildlife in and around the Taboo property on their hiking trails. All non-motorized watersports are also included for you to enjoy the area in canoes and kayaks.

We are also counting on Henry’s and Amplis onsite Saturday and Sunday to provide some bonus content!

ANTARCTICA – Through the Lens. Nov 16

We are very excited about our upcoming show. Rob Kline, award winning RHCC photographer, and myself, Ron Goodlin (Past president RHCC and GTCCC Judge – I have spoken to many of your clubs about my adventures with polar bears and grizzly bears in the past….) will be presenting a 90 minute show about our recent adventures in Antarctica.

We will also be having a print gallery before the show.
Exciting news, we have procured several items for a live auction with the culmination of a donation for: a Cruise for 2 people to Antarctica through Swoop, to be auctioned off at the end of the show with no minimum bid…this is a $17,000 value and it could be your chance to get to antarctica at a fraction of the cost!
All proceeds from auction, print, books and ticket sales will go to World Wildlife Fund Canada and Oceanites research, Rob and I are not making a penny from this endeavour, as it is our way to give back to a worthy cause and help stop the effects of climate change…..
We are therefore asking for your support, with the blessings of the GTCCC, to please add this attached pdf to your club presentations,
so as to please announce this to your membership AT EVERY UPCOMING MEETING until the November 16 date.
this is a worthy cause and we promise a very exciting and entertaining evening of images, videos and stories about our almost 1 month excursion to Antarctica this past January.
PLEASE GIVE THE MEMBERS TIME TO WRITE DOWN THE WEBSITE ADDRESS
and in addition give them the email address for information….  antarcticattl@mail.com
 
Thank you for your help with this project and we look forward to seeing you there!
PS….(even if you can’t make it, you can help the cause by buying a ticket online as a form of a donation for Oceanites Penguin research and WWF Canada)
