Weekly Update 2014-03-17

Hi All,

Lots of things to fill you in on this week so without further a do I’d best get on with it…

First up; you’ve all submitted your pictures for the Exhibition and the judging is taking place this weekend. Well the exciting news is that Andrew has secured a space in Jackson square for us toe exhibit the winners. We will need to work fast though and if you image wins a category we will require a high res digital copy (not the re-sized image used for projected competitions) so they can be printed ASAP. It needs to be the original image and not the smaller versions as these images will be printed LARGE.

Following on from the exhibition we have the annual dinner and prize giving evening. Saturday 26th April 2014, 7 for 7.30pm start.  It’s always a nice event. It’s held at Great Hadham golf club where we get a good meal and we have a slide show of all images entered and the judge attends as our guest.  The price is £22.00 per person, partners are of course invited.
If you are interested in the meal please would you select your choice of menu and return with the money no later than 15th April.  Cheques made payable to Bishops Stortford Camera Club.  Please include the name of the person with each choice.   Please hand to Jean.

This week at club is our very own Kevin Scott who will be giving us a talk with a selection of images on ‘Kilimanjaro and safari‘.  Looking forward to seeing lots of you there.

I have also had this message from Jonathon; “Emma last Sunday I was lucky enough to go the Fens Falconry Centre for what was probably the best photographic experience that I have ever had.  It differs to other Other Falconry / Bird of Prey centres in so much that it is really for photographers, and therefore the opportunities for a great image are amazing. I am trying to negotiate a group booking for BSCC,  it will be at a weekend hopefully prior to holiday season, and will probably run from around 1230 to 1630” Jonathon would like an idea of numbers so if you are interested please let us know

A big thanks to everyone who supported the quiz night on Saturday, I am pleased to report that we made a total of £500 profit for club funds.

Finally I have volunteered my services this Saturday to take photos at the ball in aid of breast cancer support in Stansted. I still need some helpers so if you would like to do some work for charity whilst learning some new skills please give me a shout.

Speak soon
