It’s Christmas – and cups runneth over

A highlight of the Christmas social was the presentation of our competition cups to the current champions and this year both cups had new names engraved on them.

In the Open, Mark Blaber was presented with the Peter Saul Cup, and Ray Barnes was presented with the Andy Stewart Cup for winning the Theme league.

How hard can it be to take a couple of pics of cup presentations? Well, firstly when deciding to grab a not so often used camera out of the bag do check it has a charged battery inserted [Check]. Secondly, check you haven’t removed the SD cards to use as spares on a recent holiday {Not Checked!].

Then, when relying on a mobile phone camera do check that you are not getting a nasty green glare being reflected by the light cast from the running projector.

So, having not shot RAW, in desperation convert the image to black and white and claim it as a homage to Mark’s recent excellent and winning monochrome images.

Looking forward to a new competition year

Our first meeting of the new year will be a competition evening on Monday, January 7th, featuring an Open section and a Theme section of “Hands”.

Normal meetings are held at Spratton C of E Primary School hall on the 1st Monday of the Month except bank holidays when usually meetings are held the following Monday unless the school is closed for half-term. Usual start time 7.30pm. No meetings in August.
