So this is the end of our regular weekly meetings until Fall. Our first Wednesday meeting back will be September 11th. Thank you to everyone who participated. Enjoy your weekend summer and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Note that even though we are not meeting weekly we still have a few things planned – our weekend away and the summer BBQ. We’ll also post announcements that we think may be of interest to our members so keep checking the website!
The Kamloops Model Airplane Society invites you to their 18th annual Spring Fun Fly located at Tolko Field just 20 minutes North of Kamloops on Highway 5.
Please join Kamloops Museum & Archives Friday, May 24, 2019, at 5:30 pm, as they open a new exhibit, Interior Monologue:Benjamin Baltzly and the Geological Survey of BC.
Benjamin Baltzly, a Montréal studio photographer, got the gig to document the terrain and resources of the Interior Plateau of BC in 1871 long before Google Earth was ever thought of. He missed connections, couldn’t find camping gear once in Victoria, nor transport from Yale. He and his survey crew had to walk up the Fraser Canyon to reach Kamloops. His luck wasn’t much better here but he would produce some of the most lucid photographs of the area from that period.
Interior Monologues features a range of prints, photos, and support materials. The exhibit provides glimpses of pastoral life set amid the spectacular topography of BC. Come see amazing pictures from the photo gig with more ups, downs and drama than the mountains Baltzly traversed. This is an exhibit you won’t want to miss.

We will be headed for Revelstoke this year. For those who are able to leave Friday we will meet in the Sandman Hotel parking lot at 1901 Laforme Blvd in Revelstoke for a photoshoot of the town. We have a block reservation at the Sandman Hotel (phone: 250-837-5271 to make your reservation).
Saturday the itinerary includes Mt. Revelstoke, Enchanted Forest, Ghost Town and any other stop that piques the groups’ interest.
Sunday we’ll be headed home and the group will decide on the stops. Hope you can join us!
Bring food! Bring chairs! Bring your best gregarious self! It’s BBQ time!
You’ll need a dish to share, your own meat, your own chair and your own plate and cutlery.
You’ll notice this is scheduled earlier than usual. Hopefully we won’t have the wildfires of last year but if we do we wanted to beat the smokey skies by having it in June. Join us at Valerie’s sister’s home at the corner of 14th and the South Thompson River off of River Street.
Hope to see you there!
