Our own long-time club member Paul Caster will present a program on Paul’s Alaskan Adventure. Paul took his first trip to Alaska recently and we will want to see and hear all about it. Paul, a zoo keeper in his day job, is not only interested in wildlife photography, but also landscapes and, well, just about all types of photography. He is a pretty intrepid guy with a sense of fun, so it promises to be an entertaining presentation.
Much as I hate to do this as it may be an over-reaction, out of an abundance of caution, we will be cancelling both the regular March AOPC meeting and the March AOPC field trip due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak. To my knowledge, there has only been one case of the virus identified in Arkansas, but there has been very little testing in the country and several of us travel (in fact, I just returned to Arkansas from a flight through Denver–amazingly, there were more TSA agents in the security area than passengers). I think there is little to fear in a field trip situation, but then again, this is a new situation and we are just being careful.
