If you enjoyed Forgotten Prairie then you are sure to like Chris Doering's and Connie Biggart's photographic and historic rendering of the sites that were filmed. If you are not yet familiar with Off the Beaten Path With Chris & Connie a trip to Old Jack's place near Fusilier, SK is a good place to start to get to know them. Well photographed and well written. You are sure to enjoy this site.
And if you are interested in the fine art photography of Rob Pohl with his large format cameras, please visit his site as well. Robert S Pohl Photography.

Those members that attended out final meeting of 2017 were introduced to Darwin Wiggett's and Samantha Chrysanthou's new creation League Magazine. I think many of you might be able to relate to my response.
My initial reaction to a League subscription was something like "$50 for a magazine? I don't think so." But I got to thinking about it in terms of supporting something I believe in. From other things I support I get no tangible return on investment. OK, a tax deduction, but I'd rather have a nice photo magazine than save a few dollars on a $50 donation. So, I have become a subscriber.
If you believe that League is a worthwhile endeavor then I urge you to take the viewpoint that I expressed above and consider a subscription. You may even get some of your work published and get paid for it. That would probably cover the cost of the subscription.

Wishing all of you a wonderful 2018,
