bicycles can be dangerous

Toronto. Our executive meeting on Wednesday evening, May 3, 2023 was the 36th held via ZOOM. We were regaled by Celio and his tale of teaching his children to ride a bike, only to fall victim to a spill. He finally managed to get an x-ray and ultrasound plus medication. His was a horror tale about the effect of many events including COVID on our over burdened medical staff.

Our April meeting via ZOOM with Cindy Motzenbecker was the best ever attended! Note that our May Toronto meeting has been moved to THURSDAY May 18th at a local gallery for the book launch by Vincenzo Pietropaolo. Details will follow in a few days.

Our Newsletter is still in need of a more permanent editor. Interested? Got a way with words? Then drop us an email at! Meantime, journal co-editor, David Bridge will send out a brief newsletter as soon as a few things are clarified. Nevertheless, if you would like a personal copy but haven’t joined up yet, drop me a note at

Our membership secretary was unavailable this time. The membership report for April  will arrive shortly.

The spring auction was a big success, thanks to the many volunteers, and especially our president Clint who was both auctioneer and photographer of most of those lots I posted here on the web. Treasurer John Morden will be issuing cheques to sellers once he completes all the nitty-gritty calculations. Well done all!

Hard on the heels of the spring auction is our spring photographica-fair on SUNDAY May 28th at Trident Hall. Please join us and augment your collection – or even your user gear (film or digital). See the May posts and sidebars for current information!

Our next  journal will be out as a pdf file shortly. Co-editor David Bridge gave the exec an overview of the status and work in progress.

Spring is coming. The trees are in blossom. The grass needs cutting again.  Meantime,  the seventh wave of COVID-19 and its restrictions seem to be just a bad memory.
