HI everyone - The 2021 ACC-VI Photo Competition (Thur, Nov 4) was an evening of ohhs, ahhs, laughs, and more than a few good stories.
The pictures are all up on the ACCVI website. Check it out at accvi.ca/about/photos/
A huge thank you to everyone who sent in photos - your contributions gave us all something to celebrate!
And, another big vote of thanks to the audience - both in person and via Zoom. Everyone pulled on their “judgy pants” (apologies to Mike Hubbard who did this for a living - probably in robes) and did a wonderful job with voting.
Perhaps the biggest vote of thanks should go to the Photo Comp Event Team: Brian Parsons (he gathered the photos); Roger Taylor (he ran the tech - flawlessly - on the night); Peggy Taylor (she handled organization); Neil Han (he set up the Zoom); Liz William (she was the vote scrutineer); Dave Suttill (he provided and staffed the goody table); and Ken Wong (he ran the front door check in). Without them I can assure you - this event would not have been possible!
As for me - Mary Sanseverino - I mostly stood and talked - but, I was a university professor - I can stand and talk for hours!
Here are the results:
