Our New Season starts on September 12th at 7.30pm in the RBL hall as usual.

  •  Our first meeting traditionally tends  to be social – with light refreshments but this year we are adding more structure and interest.
  •  We  will have a SPEAKER for the second half of the evening; further details will follow on the website
  • The NEW PROGRAMME will be presented together with new rules for the cumulative (3 round) Shuffell trophy and a new standard for PDIs. The attached PDF will give you the details in case you cannot come and they are also on the website, as is the programme.   We will also be accepting ideas for workshops.
  • There will be a brief demonstration of  the new competition entry form and PDI upload facility.

 A meeting not to be missed and we look forward to seeing you all plus any visitors you might wish to bring – 2 meetings are free if you are thinking of joining but only paid up members can enter competitions.

Our first competition evening is October 10th with entry and uploading deadline October 3rd. The set subject is ‘People at work’ and we need EITHER 2 prints (one set subject and one open) AND/OR 1 PDI (set subject)  

Thinking ahead to the AV competition- Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10 is available again, it isn’t the only AV programme you can use but it is very simple and quick to master.   Brian T has downloaded and checked a copy from as has Chris so do ask for more details.

Those of you who shop in Tesco should see our smart banner on the RBL railings for a week or two before the first meeting, please keep an eye on it and do any remedial work necessary or even remove it if it is vandalised. Let a committee member know if there is a problem but some will be away over the next couple of weeks.
