January 2004 Newsletter

Sulu Sea Adventure (Diving in the Philippines)
Presented by Lin Craft, APSA, FSCACC

 
Thursday, January 8, 2004 @ 7:00 PM @ The Otto Center
 
Lin Craft is an award-winning photographer whose long love affair with nature, travel, and photography has led to adventures all over the globe.  Although her photographic interests are diverse, she currently specializes in nature and travel photography.  She strives to communicate the extraordinary beauty of the natural world through her images and has presented over 175 slide illustrated lectures to groups of all ages and backgrounds.
 
Lin has been active in photographic organizations on the local, regional, and national levels for over 15 years.  Lin has been honored as a Fellow of the Southern California Association of Camera Clubs (SCACC), of which she has twice been president, and as an Associate of the Photographic Society of America (PSA).  She has been listed in the PSA Who’s Who in photography every year since 1994.  She is currently serving as president of the Fallbrook Camera Club, as 1st Vice President of SCACC, and is Treasurer of the Nature Division of PSA.
 
This month’s presentation will take you to the remote islands and reefs of the Sulu Sea in the Philippine Islands.  We will visit both an island community that harvests seaweed to support itself and the rustic camp of some itinerant shark fishermen.  The main part of the program will take you diving to explore the incredible underwater world of the Tubataha reefs to learn about the colorful and diverse marine life that inhabit them, including manta rays.  Although still relatively pristine, sadly, even these remote reef areas are being faced with illegal fishing activities that threaten to destroy forever what has been considered one of the most beautiful and diverse marine ecosystems in the world.
 
NEW LOCATION FOR 2004
 
Beginning in January of 2004, our meetings will be held at the Otto Center at the San Diego Zoo on the 2nd Thursday of each month. The meetings will begin promptly at 7 PM and must finish by 9:15 PM. This will be a wonderful location for us. We will also have periodic use of a digital projector.  Thanks to Steve Cirone for locating this venue for our club meetings.
