Argus World Argosy: Begun in 2002, the Argus
World Argosy is our signature project in which members of the ACG and others are passing a single Argus C3 camera from photographer
to photographer around the globe. Check out it's progress at: http://argusargosy.tripod.com
Annual ACG Gathering in Martinsville, VA:
Each May, members of the Argus Collectors Group come from the far reaches of the planet (no kidding, really!) to get together
for a weekend of camera exhibition, workshops, photo shoots, fabulous meals and comraderie in Martinsville, VA. Doug
Wilcox and Ron Norwood have instituted this annual function and serve as our gracious hosts each year.
Argust Day: Each Argust, the ACG encourages its
members and others to carry an Argus camera with them for the day and to submit photos to our online gallery.
Photo Contests: The ACG sponsors regular photo
contests for members. Here are links to some of the more recent contests:
