SIG Meetings/Outings

Drone SIG Meeting - Announcing the Kick Off meeting for the Drone SIG of the FCDCC! If you are interested in learning about the exciting challenges of photographing using a drone, please join us for our first Drone SIG meeting. We will work together to define our purpose and establish some goals for our group. At this first meeting, we will review the collection of drone related resources that we have been gathering, plan future meetings, and there will be flight demonstrations in Steve's backyard! You do not need to have a drone or even be in the market for purchasing a drone to join this SIG. If you are curious about maximizing this new POV for photography, please join us! Wednesday, August 16, 2017 6:30 PM Steve Eis' home at 3853 Fletcher St. Loveland CO.
No need to RSVP, but if you are coming, we would appreciate a heads up.
