December 17, 1997
The September 19 inaugural meeting of the New York Stereoscopic Society was a big success, with approximately 100 people in the audience and many others sending regrets because of prior engagements. Those attending ranged from the old hands who have worked with stereo imaging for years to some absolute neophytes who were introduced to their very first stereo projection. Forty-seven profile sheets were returned by people interested in participating in the Society.
Now it’s time to get a little more serious about forming the organization. The 1998 membership year will have 3 meetings, held at the AMNH in Winter, Spring and Fall. Dues will be necessary to pay for the meeting space, printing and mailing costs. Based on the turnout in September, we’ve set a membership goal of 50, which means that individual dues of $15 will raise the necessary funds for the 3 meetings. So you see how important every member will be.
The January 10 meeting is shaping up to be another exciting 3D event. We”ve been very fortunate to get Les Fisher of the World Circumnavigators Society to give us his “Glimpse of Tibet,” and Jon Golden of RBT will share “Black and White, Then and Now” along with some news about RBT products. The newly renovated Linder Theater should provide a comfortable setting for informal show-and-tell during intermission, similar to the first meeting. We have rented a 6 foot silver screen for the evening.
Please take a moment now to send in your dues. As a charter member, you will have the satisfaction of supporting an organization that will explore a rich but underused media. Additionally, you will receive:
• advance mailed notice of each meeting
• a directory of fellow members
• announcements of related events in the area
• a voice in planning meetings
• peace and happiness through stereo understanding.
Thanks for your interest. I look forward to welcoming you to the New York Stereoscopic Society, and don’t forget to mark your calendars for January 10.
