Fifth Fridays: Grab Bag Friday. On those months which have a fifth Friday, (October 2020 and January and April 2021), we will have grab bag time. We may schedule a special event, have a virtual party, have a hard challenge to meet, Q&A’s, sell something, take the week off, or any number of things.
WEEKLY GRAB BAG FILL IN: Any week after we do what is scheduled, we will use any remaining time filling in with Q&A, sharing of personal photo projects, sharing a new tip or trick you learned, showing us your new gadget, or almost anything you want to say or show the club. You will come to the meeting with the idea that you may or may not be able to share during grab bag fill in time, but you should be ready to share if time allows and you want to share.
