Simon Roberts in holding an exhibtion in Pallant House until 13th October, probably in the free gallery downstairs.
‘Take Five at the Crypt’ is a show of 5 members of the Hailsham PS, including London Salon member Liz Scott. This will be held at the Crypt Gallery Seaford from 1st to 6th October
We had 1424 visitors to this years’ Annual Exhibition and we received many plaudits for the quality and range of the images and the quality of the presentation.
I would just like to say “THANK YOU” to everyone involved who helped to make this happen. It is your Exhibition and it could not be undertaken without your help and support.
Our Annual Exhibition will close at 5pm on Saturday 17th August. If you wish to collect your prints on that day please arrive at the Assembly Room by 5pm. Those prints not collected will be boxed and brought back to Tangmere for return on the first Club evening in September.
Some of the prints will be held back by the Selection Committee for use in inter club competitions and similarly we will hold back some prints for a display at the Sage Centre (15 – 20). I will notify all those whose prints are selected for use at the Sage Centre and you will have the option of retaining them if you wish to use some of the prints for other competition purposes. However I do hope you will be willing for us to to keep for a short time for use at the Sage.
Finally we will need a number of members with muscles to help with loading the display boards onto John’s horsebox and delivering back to Tangmere with the posts and bases delivered to Ann McDonald’s garage. Do help with this task if you are able
The Hayling Island Camera Club Exhibtion will be held this coming weekend 17th and 18th August from 10 – 4pm at Northney Farm, St Peter’s Road, Hayling Island, Hampshire PO11 0RX. They would be very pleased to see visitors from Chichester
As usual volunteers are sought to help with the set-up for the Annual Exhibiton. Key times and dates are:
Thursday 8th August – meet at Tangmere at 6pm to load all the display screens and other equipment onto John Howes horsebox. Once that task is completed we then go to Ann McDonald’s house in Oving to collect the metal stands and posts. These remain in the horsebox overnight.
Friday 9th August – meet at the City Council offices, North Street Chichester, at about 8:45 am to unload the horsebox, then take all stands, posts and display screens up to the Assembly Room to be assembled. All of that should be completed by 10 – 10:15 am.
Once all the stands are erected those who are coming to mount their prints on the screens should arrive at about 10am to set up your own exhibit in accordance with the layout design. If you are only putting up prints please do not arrive before 10am as this will enable the stands, panels and print numbers to be thoroughly checked. The whole task should be completed by 12 noon.
Exhibition Preview Evening – please arrive at 7 for 7:30pm. The Mayor of Chichester CIty Council is our Guest of Honour and he will present the cups and prizes to the winners of the various Awards. This event is for all members of the Club, their friends and family and is not restricted in any way to just Exhibition entrants. After the formal part of the evening, refreshments are available downstairs and the full Exhibition will be available for viewing. Please do try to come along to the Club’s main summer showpiece
Just a reminder that the Annual Exhibition Pre Exhibition Meeting is coming up on Thursday – Tangmere Village Centre at 7.30pm as usual. We are hoping for a good turn-out as we also need to hold a short Extraordinary General Meeting to address outstanding matters from the AGM in May, as well as addressing remaining arrangement for our Preview Evening on Friday 9th August and the Exhibition Week – Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th August. Remember that the Preview Evening is a social occasion for all club members, their families, friends and invited guests.
I also want to remind everyone to bring their diaries/calendars, and their wallets. The Exhibition Catalogue will be on sale, and we will be looking for donations (cash preferred) for the Preview Evening catering.
We also still need volunteers for Stewarding during the week of the Exhibition – plenty of spaces available.
This is a reminder that an Extraordinary General Meeting will be held on Thursday 1st August commening at 7:30. The purpose of the meeting will be to consider all those items of a Constitutional nature that could not be resolved at the AGM on 16th May because the meeting was not quorate. Currently the quorum figure is 35% of the registered membership i.e at least 51 members need to be present and on 16th May only 49 members attended. It is most important that all outstanding matters are dealt with at this EGM so PLEASE PLEASE make very effort to attend. The quorum for the EGM is the same as for the AGM i.e. 35% of membership – 51.
Copies of the Agenda and all the supporting papers to be considered can be downloaded from Dropbox using the link ‘here’ in the Newsletter of 8th July 2019
The second half of the meeting will be used to consider all outstanding issues relating to the preparation for the Annual Exhibition to be held from 10th to 17th August inclusive
We will be holding a raffle on the Annual Exhibition Preview Evening on 9th August so we are seeking donations of wine or spirits to use as prizes. If you are able to contribute some alcoholic beverage, or anything else suitable, please bring that to the EGM on 1st August. Carmel Lynich is co-ordinating this and would be pleased to receive your donations either of goods or cash
