Spring N4C Mini-Convention 202


"Springbrook" is at this
location this year

  April 28-30, 2023
Spring Mini-Convention
Held at Wesley Woods
near Indianola, IA.

A great photo shoot, hands on workshops,
and educational speakers are planned.


The spring convention will be held at Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center. The facility is located a few miles south of Indianola, Iowa. The meeting room & eating area are next to each other on the main level. The meeting room has a large projection screen, a mounted projector and a new sound system. The sleeping facilities remain the same. Instead of large open rooms we have had in the past this facility has dorm rooms that sleep 2-4 people. Most of these rooms are below the meeting hall with the others a short walking distance away. The facility requires a minimum of two people per room or we will be charged more. If you have someone you wish to room with please write that on your application. If not you will be assigned a roommate. There are a few rooms for couples. You still need to bring your own bedding, towels, etc.

The facility allows you to bring food to the dorms. Each dorm has a kitchen & meeting room for visiting or card playing after the meetings. NO ALCOHOL inside or out. They also have a campground with electric hookups.

The facility is 5 miles south of Indianola off Hwy 92. PLEASE NOTE: from Indianola please do not use your GPS to the facility. It might take you to an entrance that is no longer used. Please use these directions: Just west of Indianola on hwy 92 turn south on hwy 63. There is a big church on the north side where you turn south. When the pavement ends you turn left into Wesley Woods.

There are several motels in Indianola as it is a college town. If you have questions about the facility please email us. Look for the registration forms on the web site closer to the convention
Hope you can join us.

Each Spring, usually Friday, Saturday, beginning the last Friday in April, a mini-convention is held. (For many years it was at Springbrook State Park). It begins on Friday afternoon and concludes following Sunday. Excellent programs & workshops are scheduled, interspersed with N4C business meetings, and wonderful food. Cost is minimal. It is a good place to become better acquainted with other photographers from the N4C region in a beautiful natural setting. 


Planned again     April 26-28, 2024
