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.
The Hayling Island Camera Club
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
Once all the stands are erected those who are coming to mount their prints on the screens should arrive at about
Exhibition Preview Evening – please arrive at 7 for
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
It is five weeks until the opening of the Annual Exhibition, so here are a few reminders of what will be happening and what we still need to do.
Thursday 1st August – the Club Members’ Pre-Exhibition Meeting. This is at Tangmere Village Centre, our usual Club venue at the usual time of 7.30pm. Please bring your diary/calendar and your wallet. The Exhibition Catalogue will be available at the end of the meeting – still only £1, and there will be posters and flyers for you make a nuisance of yourself with.
Sheila Tester will also be asking for contributions either in cash, or in kind for the Preview Evening buffet supper. We will also be appealing for home-made cakes that we can sell by the slice during Exhibition week.
Stewarding – volunteers for stewarding are needed for various dates throughout Exhibition week. I will have the Rota Sheet at the Members’ Pre-Exhibition Meeting on 1st August. I realize that some people are working and/or have other daytime commitments, but if you have images in the Exhibition, please try to help-out with the Stewarding.
Friday 9th August – Exhibition Set-Up Day. All Members should attend on Friday morning set up their own exhibit in accordance with the layout design. If you cannot get there, other people may be willing to help with this, so please ask. There will be plenty of help on hand for those who haven’t done this before. We don’t really want people to arrive much before 10am so that the stands, prints and panel numbers etc can be properly distributed and checked. If you arrive earlier, you may be standing around for a while.
It may be helpful to bring a tape measure, a small level, some string and some tape to simplify the job of arranging the prints on the panel. The Club does carry some of these items that are available for you to use if you do not have your own and the Club will be providing the Velcro pads used to attach the prints for the display boards. And, thanks to Jeff Owen and Ray Thurgood, the Display boards are all now in good shape.
Friday 9th August – Exhibition Preview Evening. All Members, their families and friends are invited to attend the Exhibition Preview Evening. We also welcome invited guests from other camera clubs. We aim to gather from 7pm for 7.30 start. After the preliminaries and Awards’ ceremonials, there will be our traditional buffet (Sheila Tester will be looking for helpers) and a chance to view the exhibition before it opens to the public the following day. This is a usually a really enjoyable, social evening, so even if you didn’t submit anything for the Exhibition this year, please do come along.
Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th August (closed Sunday) the Exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm each day, with coffee, tea and cake available. There are some 293 prints form and 149 projected images on show. Members who wish to have their own greetings cards on sale can do so – with a 15% commission to the Club. Please bring these along on the Friday.
Saturday 17th August – 5pm – Exhibition Take-Down. Again, all Members should try to attend at the end of the Exhibition to take down their prints, or make an arrangement with someone else to do so. Some prints may be requisitioned by the Selection Committee for consideration and use in external competitions next season.
