Welcome back to our new season!  A good turn out (mid-thirties) with just over half a dozen potential new members who we hope will join in one or two meetings time.  (Please note only paid-up members can enter competitions).  Apart from a glass of wine, a nibble of cheese and a catch-up chat, the evening covered Bill’s new printed programme and some ideas for trips, and workshops. We also saw some examples of member’s summer work, plus a few “shadow” images – some useful positive and negative feedback!

Competitions: We are always keen for members to participate in our competitions, regardless of their level, as it is one of the best ways to improve your skills.  We will have a 30 minute pre-meeting workshop in the small committee room starting at 6:50pm on 27th September to explain how to enter the Shuffell competition including preparing and uploading PDIs (projected jpg) and/or your Prints. We are always very happy to help individuals with any problems.

Workshops: We received several ideas for members-only full workshops which we will pursue: some of these will require us to book the hall for an extra Thursday evening so we will need confirmation of your interest and topics before we can give more details.  Please email Chris at info@… or any of his email addresses.

Trips: Brian is proposing an afternoon and evening visit to Abbotsbury at the end of October to see their illuminations.  Decisions will be made at our meeting on 25th October when we should know that weekend’s forecast. Please see separate post about this trip…

And always keep an eye on our Top Panel for news about our next meeting!
