Roundup of club activities during December 2019

A short month in terms of club activities with only two meetings before the Christmas break.

5 December - A workshop where members brought along up to 3 PDIs and prints for critique by other members in a non-competitive atmosphere and also saw their images either projected or displayed under easel lighting as they would be on a competition evening.

12 December  - We had a most enjoyable Christmas party with 35 members and partners. Following the mulled wine or soft drink served on arrival Mike and Christine Harrison came up trumps with another delicious three-course meal. John Warbrick provided the quiz designed to test our brain cells and, with the help of a number of members, it all contributed to making the evening go with a swing and one to remember. In keeping with tradition it was announced that the Chairman’s Challenge for the forthcoming months is 3 images on Inclement weather.
