Our centennial year has begun and the committee has put many of the commemorative ideas into action. Last month we told you the names of the four raffle winners. Thank you to all who participated in that event.
You may have seen the painting of the lakeside elevation of our Clubhouse on display above the fireplace in the Lakeside Lounge. Prints of the painting are available for $30. We will also be creating note cards with that image.
Pat Rakowski and GM Pat Nora are reviewing a number of clothing items with the exciting commemorative logo designed by member Blanca Abend.
This will probably be the last reminder for you to reserve your photo tile for our 100th Anniversary Commemorative Photo Tile Mural. As previously announced there will only be 100 tiles sold and I am happy to report that we have less than two dozen remaining. Don’t be left out, call the office to be included in this one-time event.
For those of you who have already purchased a tile, Club Photographer Chris Gribble will begin scanning photos for the tiles Wednesday and Thursday evenings in March. She will also be scanning on either Saturday or Sunday mornings during March, watch for an announcement of those dates.
Chris indicates that an actual photograph would be preferable to a digital photograph and for the highest quality reproduction the photograph should be commercially printed and not printed on your home printer. Keep in mind that the tiles are square and there is a potential that your image may require some cropping. If there is no alternative other than a digital image it should be an 1800 X 1800 dpi (300 pixels per square inch) for a 6 X 6 inch image.
To see several pages of photo tiles already created logo on to: www.knotjustracingsmugmug.com, then under “Galleries” click on “100 Anniversary Tiles”. For any specific questions regarding the process of creating the tile you can email Chris at . The committee hasn’t decided on a deadline for the submission of photographs but do want to ‘work’ with members who may need to wait until Spring for their photographs.
The Anniversary committee is also looking historical or just plain old photographs of activities at the Club. Chris will scan them into an electronic file so that your treasured photographs never have to leave your watchful eye but your fellow members will be able to share the memories.
