Camera Club Goes to Panay Island this May - CT

The Catanduanes Camera Club is inviting photography enthusiasts to join them in their scheduled field trip to Panay island in Panganiban town this May 11-12 to capture local tourist attractions.

Club president Engr. Fernan A. Gianan said the activity is open to all members as well as camera bugs who want to join the club as it launches its project of going to each of the province’s 11 towns to visit and document tourist spots and slices of daily life in a bid to promote them as viable destinations.

The group will assemble at the provincial capitol prior to their 1 P.M. journey by car to Panganiban town on May 11. Upon arrival, they will pay a courtesy call on Mayor Gregorio Angeles, take photos of the afternoon life at the poblacion, before proceeding to the Del Rio Resort in barangay San Miguel.

After an early breakfast on May 12, they will proceed to Tarahid at 4:30 P.M. for their boat trip to Panay island where they will capture the light house as the sun rises. A visit to the former US Loran station is also in the schedule before the group goes back to the poblacion for lunch and the trip back to Virac at 1 P.M.

Members have been assessed a contribution of P400 each to defray expenses while non-members would have to pay P1,000, including the P300 membership fee, to join the field trip. Photos taken during the trip would be exhibited to the public at a later date.
