They think it’s all over – it is now!

The last time Brian Pere of Duston Camera Club judged our competitions he awarded first place in both categories to the same author: and this month he did it again!

The recipient of his largesse on this occasion was Richard Hollingum, who happens to be our chair and who had arranged for Brian to judge the final round of our annual contests. (Conspiracy theorists are always welcome to join SPG).

A recent trip to Northumberland provided the winning shot in the Open.

However this success was never going to be enough to deny Ron Wykes winning the Peter Saul Cup for the third time, having amassed 3 wins for the Open league through the year – together with  a second place on the night taking him well clear of the field.

It was a different story in the theme of “Autumnal”.

A first win of the season with an early morning churchyard shot catapulted Richard from third to first in the league for the Andy Stewart Cup, getting his name on the trophy for the first time.
