I was asked last night by a new member if there were any organised Camera Club activities over the summer. The answer is no for whole Club activities (the next meeting is on 1st August – see later post) but if anyone wants to organise something themselves and would like to test whether other members might be interested please send me an e mail stating what, where and time to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will include that in one of the periodic Newsletters.
An informal meeting of the Developers Group will be held on Monday 20th May. Please meet in the car park at Bosham (near the water) at 7:30pm.
The link to the AGM papers in the previous Newsletter was incorrect. The papers may be found here.
The full link is:
The AGM will be held on 16th May commencing at 7:30. The papers are available to download from Dropbox using the following link and contain an update of the Agenda paper showing named proposers and seconders in addition to the Management Committee
Please take the time to read them and print them off before the AGM. Please pay particular attention to Appendices 2b and 3b as these documents contain proposals to help with the smooth and efficient running of the Club. Each of these proposals, if approved, will require a small change in the wording of the Constitution so it is most important that the meeting is quorate.
Please make a special effort to attend.
The Southern Counties PF next week will be selecting both prints and PDIs for the InterFederations Exhibition
A group of lady photographers featuring Rachael Talibart (who takes wonderful coastal and seascape photographs) are exhibiting at the Arts Centre East Street Chichester. The exhibition is on now and lasts for about 2 weeks I think. Well worth a visit.
I have received 2 requests for photographers in the Club to photograph outside events:
the first is from Richard Rundle one of our members who is involved in promoting a model railway show in Littlehampton later this month. If anyone is interested in taking some photographs please contact Richard on 01243 261641 to get further details.
the second is from Helen Tinner at Worthing Rugby Club this weekend. Further details can be obtained from Helen on 07985001534
The last Club full meeting of the current programme year will be held on Thursday 23rd May. There was some doubt about whether this meeting could go ahead given the potential clash with the European elections, if held. It has now been clarified that if the Centre is required as a polling station, that will take place in the Youth Hall so our RPS Panels evening can definitely go ahead as planned
The PDI of the Year competition is open to all members who have submitted images into PDI competitions during the 2018-19 programme year and 2 of those entries may be entered into the PDI Of the Year competition through the usual upload portal. Any images submitted must be as in their original entry i.e. no further reworking of the image is allowed
Papers for the AGM will be circulated in the next few days and will be available for a download via Dropbox. The single item Newsletter will contain a link to get to all the documents. No copies will be available on the evening so please download you own copy as soon as the Newsletter is received.
There are 2 proposals which have implications for changes to the Constitution and, if approved, will help the smooth and efficient running of the Club so it is very important that we have a quorum of members (minimum of 43) to deal with these issues properly. Please make an effort to attend.
Details to follow in the next few days
