Monthly roundup of club activities during December

Last month started with a 'Ladies v Gents Match-a-Print' competition and it was good to see members submitting many new images. It was a light hearted evening with lots of heckling from both sides, mostly directed at the judge's comments - not only allowable but positively encouraged for this particular competition! Miles, the judge, braved it all with good humour.

On 13 December, some members went to RHS Wisley and took part in a photographic workshop run by Nigel Chapman.

We hope to see more of their images in future club competitions.

We ended the year with our annual Christmas dinner - lovingly prepared, cooked and presented by Mike and Christine Harrison. A small presentation was made to thank them during the evening and there was a general knowledge quiz which got everyone thinking. All had a great time and thanks are due to all those involved in making the evening a fun event. The Chairman’s Challenge was announced so that Sporting images can fill an evening on 10 May 2018.
