All members please note that on 1st August commencing at 7:30 pm at Tangmere we will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting required as a result of the recent AGM not being quorate. The meeting will consider the election of Officers and Post Holders and proposals relating to revised dates for the Club’s financial year and a change in the deadline date for payment of subscriptions. We need to get a quorum on this occasion to determine these matters properly
The second half of the evening will be our usual pre Exhibition meeting when details of the cup winners and certificates of merit will be announced, final preparations for the Exhibition will be made and copies of the Exhibition Brochure and programme for next year will be available.
Further details will be circulated at the beginning of July but please put the date in your diary and make every effort to attend
I’m delighted to announce that Lorna Brown EFIAP, has won a Salon Medal at this year’s London Salon of Photography. Over the years only five Chichester Camera Club members have achieved this rare distinction, Lorna now takes this number up to six!
In addition to her medal Lorna has had two images accepted at the salon. This is a significant achievement in a salon where only a very small number of submitted prints are accepted for exhibition. All of the accepted images may be viewed on the Salon website here http://www.londonsalon.org/2019-salon/4594634346
The Southern Counties PF next week will be selecting both prints and PDIs for the InterFederations Exhibition
Peter Rocchiccioli has asked if members whose prints or PDIs have scored well in Club competitions could bring in their prints tomorrow or send PDIs to him directly (1600×1200 jpeg). Peter’s e mail is email@example.com.
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.
In August 2018 the Management Committee decided that the Exhibition held in August would be known and marketed as the ‘Summer Exhibition’ and that decision was communicated to members at that time. At a meeting last Monday 8th April the Committee, on reflection, decided to rescind that decision and revert the name to ‘Annual Exhibition’.
The Focus Group will be running an Exhibition at the Assembly Room, North Street, Chichester from Saturday 6th to Saturday 13th April. Focus group members would appreciate some assistance from the ‘heavies’ loading screens etc from Tangmere on Thursday afternoon, 3rd April, at 2.45 to 3.00 and then unloading the following morning at the Assembly Room about 8.45 to 9.00am. The screen legs and bases are already loaded into John Howes horsebox so on Thursday afternoon only the display screens have to be loaded.
The following prints have been selected for the display at Sage House: Peter Rocchiccioli – The Little Boat and Volcano at Dawn; Lorna Brown – Trees from the Wood; Sarah Nichol – To the Secret Garden, Cromer Pier and The road to Lindisfarne; Mike Hancock – Path to the Door and Jasna Lake; Ronnie Hall – Chichester Harbour at Sunset; Jean Brooks – Deer in Flight; Hilary Featherstone – Goodwood Balloons; Jim Munday – Evening Glow at Fairfield; Jeff Owen – Basin Eye View and Rainbow Umbrellas.
These prints are much appreciated by the residents of Sage House at a very difficult stage in their lives. Many thanks to all the contributors.
