On Saturday 29th of February 2020 we will go to explore the picturesque Pispala together. Let’s gather in close proximity of the bus stop near Pizpala at 12 pm.
We’ll see where the path will lead us, but there are many things worth seeing in Pispala. For example Hirvitalo in Tahmela is one of the possible destinations, but we can decide on the way.
The end point of the walk will be at Rajaportin Sauna, which by the way is the oldest still running public saunas in Finland. It has very nice löylys, so if you are into going to sauna, take a towel with you.
Start is in Linnainmaa, bus stop Koilliskeskus E. You can get there by buses 1, 8, 28, 29 and 90 from the centre.
End is near bus stop Kaukajärventie where the bus 40 goes every 30 minutes back to the city. Alternatively, there is 17 nearby (Juvelankatu 19) going every hour.
The main objective is to scout an industrial complex in Vehmainen full of strange industrial objects, trash and scrapyards. If we survive attacks from escaped mutants and remain undetected by ghosts of dead workers, we can also find a treasure!
We start off from the most modern and urbanized part of Linnainmaa. During our walk south-east we will enter more calm living areas and observe the life of native Finnish people. Going further will bring us into an empty wasteland with a grim outline of the industrial halls. Despite joggers carefully evading the place, we will dive straight in. If we survive the dangerous venture, a respite is waiting for us at the splendid restaurant Vehmaisten Picasso where we can wait for a bus back to the centre. Those who are interested can go scout the ruins of a nearby mansion – Kaukajärven Kartano – on the edge of Kaukajärvi.
Again, one year has passed almost unnoticed and it is time to look to the future! Camera club Vastavalo holds an autumn general meeting on Saturday the 30th November starting at 6 pm at the Domus Club (Väinämöisenkatu 11). In order for the camera club to continue to function at least as good as it has until now, it needs a new board and some active members to join it. If you are interested (even a little), come along!
This time in the meeting we will select a new chairperson and other board members for the camera club. The composition of the board changes from year to year, and we believe that there is a suitable position to be found for everyone: what would you think of being either an exhibition, event or communications representative?
In addition, we will look at the financial situation (budget estimate) and future plans (action plan) of the camera club. We also renew the rules. Everyone is warmly welcome, and the members have the right to vote. The agenda is attached, the proposal of the renewed rules will follow.
After the meeting, at about 7 pm (or 7:30 pm), it is time for the award ceremony for Moonlight Photography Night (QVKY) and Christmas party. The honorable jury selects the winning picture for each six assignments, and it also awards the best picture series with awesome prizes. There will be glögi, mulled wine (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic version), and Christmassy snacks served.
