Now is the chance to help fill the tombola table with things that turned up at Christmas and would be appropriate to be part of the tombola prizes at North Mundham. Bring them along Thursday.

Sales table at North Mundham
Jon and Joan Barham are collecting items for the sales table at North Mundham which risks to be a real treasure trove. So any items you would like to sell with a percentage or all the proceeds to the club please contact Jon or Joan to ensure they have them when required.
As you know Keith Sawyer is already down to give us a talk on
“My way with Composites”
The good news is he has now agreed to fill the second part of the evening with a tutorial “Cutting out Difficult Objects”
This will be Keith’s first opportunity to show his undoubted skills to members of the Digital Group and I am sure he will be well supported.
Tuesday 23rd February
Just a reminder that Richard Curtis will be with us in the main hall.
Richard is Principal Solutions Consultant for Adobe Europe and as he showed when he visited us in November 2014 he is well worth listening to. We have promised him a full house so make sure the date is in your diary.

Congratulations Graham Sergeant for being awarded a PAGB Gold medal at the Great Northern Festival held in December for his audio-visual sequence “Beeswing”. [The sequence is the homeless project.] This will be shown at the club on the 17 March 2016. In his response he thanked Carole Speight and Pete Bamforth for their support and contribution to the success.
The RPS group is meeting tomorrow the 14th to combine serious analysis of potential RPS submissions and mince pies
Ann is still looking for volunteers to bake potatoes for the North Mundham supper on the Saturday. She needs five more people to bake ten potatoes each. Lorna, Lynne and Mike D have already kindly volunteered. Lorna and Lynne have offered to bake twenty if necessary but I think it is less trouble for them if we have more volunteers. Contact Ann by email.
Next weeks quiz night will require refreshment and fun so please bring a bit of both. We would like to take a photograph of all medal winners in the year so please bring your medals.
At Thursdays meeting Rob de Ruiter judged the beginners and intermediate print competition with his animated and lively manner and with comments that were absolutely too the point. It was an enjoyable evening as he was very considerate engaging in a dialogue with the photographers about their prints that achieved 10 points. We look forward to see him again as he is always welcome in our club. The results are already on the website as are the standings (need for log in)
We had a lively Print Group meeting this week, with a particular look at different papers and the different effects they gave to the same original image.
Dave Abbott brought along a stack of images by the late Charlie Sayers, some dating from the 1930s . Among these wonderful action shots and portraits was this handsome young fellow, taken in the mid-70s. No prizes for recognizing Club stalwart Charlie Roe!
We’ll meet again on the 12th January at 7.30 as usual in the small hall. That’s conveniently a week before the next Beginner and Intermediate Print Competition deadline, so do bring along work you’re thinking about entering.
Santa was on his sleigh in the car park at the Coop Tangmere on Friday afternoon.
The pictures I took of Santa and the families are available to be sent to you by email. Small contact prints are on the notice board at the Tangmere Village Centre so if you send me the number of the image via the contact form on this page I will send you the file.
Maybe some of you gave me your address but the email did not get through so don’t hesitate to contact us.
