If you are fortunate enough to belong to a club that is a Northern Virginia Alliance of Camera Clubs member, you may wish to know of an upcoming Abstract Competition. For more information, go to: www.nvacc.org I don't know what abstract is yet, but I'm looking forward to entering this juried (read tough!) competition! Geezer
