Other Notes:
1. In the April Hot Air Balloon Outing,  I submitted 297 of your photos to Seminole Casino and asked them to pick a First, Second, and Third Winner.
If they need higher resolution photos for their own use, I will get back to you.    The submitted photos varied from 14.2 MB to 15 KB, so I would
I would guess that some of you need to submit higher resolution photos in the future.  
2. May Shy Wolf OutingPhotos are still being received by e-mail and the Thursday, June 13th DPI-SIG Meeting.
All photos should:
a. Be enhanced, but not cropped excessively,
b. Be high resolution jpg, and
c. Include your own name for each file photo!

For the Balloon Outing photos, Ron added your names to over 200 photos so that you will receive proper credit.  This is something you should be doing before submitting.   Each photo needs your own name within the name of the file.
