This month’s blog covers mainly items discussed at committee many of which will be communicated orally and via Viewfinder.
First off a few words of thanks. Thanks to Dennis for an exciting programme at our Tnt group. I have heard may people say what a fantastic evening they had with John Humphrey at the last meeting so thanks to John too. Thanks to Cathy and Ully for running the club during my absence, particular thanks to Cathy for sorting the issues with the projector “steam up”-reports tell me she did a great job keeping the evening together with minimum upset. Sadly we did not perform too well in the competition itself after we had progressed well up to that date.
Thanks to Vince, Ully and John for sorting out a great venue for our meeting on the 17th when neither the Old Town Hall nor St. Mary’s is available for us. The scheduled Colour print competition is moved to the 31st March and we will be able to enjoy the hospitality of Espinosa Ballet School in Berkhamsted with their models for a great evenings studio shoot. Instructions and map will appear in the Viewfinder out before the event.
The committee has been agonizing for some time on how best to involve younger people. To this end Vince has written a detailed discussion document –again which will appear in Viewfinder-please read carefully and let us know your comments to help us formulate an appropriate adjustment for the club constitution-thanks to Vince for his had work preparing this document.
We will be dealing with the committee member’s reports for the AGM a little differently this year. We will provide hard copy to all those with no computer access, For the rest we will email the reports –with a note saying that hard copies can be made available on request –the object of the exercise is to save money and paper- hopefully most members will approve of this.
Iain has given advance notice of his intention to resign from the committee and Webmaster role at the end of the season-thanks to Iain for looking after things for the last 12months. Please let me or the committee know if you are interested in taking on this task for the club.
Finally clarification of entry details for the next round black and white competition. Registration by 10th March. Prints submitted at Espinosa 17th March.
Last gasp !! I think we must all have noticed the excellent quality of the General section entries at last weeks meeting-congratulations to them all for outstanding submissions .
