Focus Group Helpers Wanted

The Focus Group Exhibition is on at the Assembly Room starting Saturday.  It would be great if some of the muscular members of the Club could give us a hand getting the screens, etc. transported to town.  
The schedule is:
     – Thursday, 3:00PM at Tangmere to load up the screens, etc.
     – Friday, 8:30 AM at the Assembly Room to unload the trailer and set up.
Support has always been great whenever the Club has an exhibition and it would be appreciated if it continued for this occasion.

We will be asking for volunteers for various jobs over the exhibition weekend next week so please talk to Carmel then!! The more of us help the less pressure on those that do!

Annual Exhibition – key dates

The Annual Exhibition might seem very distant just now, but it’s not too early to take note of the key dates, especially the deadline for all entries which is Thursday 10th May.  All Club Members who enter work for the exhibition are guaranteed at least one image will be included in this major event for the Club that takes place this year between Saturday 11th and Saturday 18th August at the Assembly Room, Chichester.

You can find the the Annual Exhibition Guidance here: –

Annual Exhibition 2017 Guidance Notes for Entrants

For your diaries, do please also note that the Club Pre-Exhibition meeting will be at 7.30pm on Thursday 2nd August at Tangmere Village Centre.  The Preview Evening, to which all members, their Partners, Spouses and family as well as our friends from other clubs and judges and speakers from the season are invited, is on Friday 10th August at 7pm at the Assembly Room.

Preparations for the exhibition are already well underway and in the run up to the event starting with the organisation of the print entries on the 17th May ready for judging on the 7th June by this year’s judge, Caroline Colegate, lots of volunteers will be needed to help with setting up, stewarding, catering and many other necessary tasks that make our Annual Exhibition such a well supported and popular occasion.
