Hi everyone,

So first up, apologies for missing last week’s update, but hopefully I will make it up to you now…

I can’t go much further without saying how great the first competition was. I was genuinely blown away by the standard of pictures in both the Beginners and Open categories. It has set us up for what looks to be a fantastic season of competitions.

Right, onto the notices:

  1. It has been confirmed that the weekend away will be to the Isle of Wight. We will be going Friday 23rd May to Monday 26th May. Partners are invited and it’s always a really fun weekend. Pease put it in your diary.
  2. Over the past couple of seasons I have co-ordinated fundraising for the club. We have collectively managed to raise the cash for a new projector and now we need a new screen. Therefore, if anyone has any ideas on how we can raise some cash for club funds please let me know
  3. It is the hand in deadline for Print competition round one on Tuesday. Janet has said that she will accept entries on the night, as long as she has the titles in advance so she can draw up the score sheets. Therefore, if any new members are interested in entering, but still have questions, then Brian and I will be at the club from 7.30pm before the speaker if you want to bring along any prints/sit and talk through things with us.
  4. Tea Rota: Please please please sign up to help out with making the tea! Look, you lot are making me beg! If we all do one week then we only have to it once. The rota is on the BSCC notice board.
  5. David is selling a second-hand Canon 40d for £180. Let me know if you are interested and I can put you in contact.
  6. Brian and I have decided that a social club night out is needed and so we have picked Friday 18th October. Please put the date in your diary. It won’t be anything flash: more than likely chicken in a basket and a pint of cider sometime. What, where, when details to follow.
  7. Many of you will know that Brian and I run our own little informal photo of the month competition. We have secured a space in Photosound, where the winning image goes on show for the entire month. In order to be considered, you need to post a picture on the BSCC Flickr group before the end of the month. This month it’s my image! I know, I know: “FIX!”, but Brian convinced me. Here is my pic: Next month it could be you! Get posting..
  8. This is your last chance to get an image together for the ‘Pump Art’ for a new local beer. Stortford Sunset is an amber ale. Images should obviously be related to the name of the beer. There is a specific Flickr group where you can post your images, which will then be shown to the owner of the brewery

Finally, on to Tuesday night and we have a change to the advertised program. Unfortunately Kevin Herbert has had to cancel due to illness. Kevin & Margery Maskell have kindly stepped in and will be givingtheir lecture entitled ‘A Moment in Time’. You can see an example of their work here:

Right, I’m signing off so I can watch Downton. Hope to see you all on Tuesday.
