And Listen to the Band!
This Saturday at Beckington, from about 4.30 till 6.30, rock band The Helm will be playing for you to practise live photography under lights. Another very good reason to charge your batteries. Please sign up at the club on Friday if you wish to attend. Look for the guys playing on www.thehelmband.co.uk
We're glad to say that our membership is steadily growing. And, very pleasingly, of our 11 new members, no less than 7 entered last week's first competition of the season. What is more, they took the top 3 places in the Club Class! Congratulations to Joel Baxter (1st & 3rd), Sheri o'Reilly (2nd) and also to João Sanchez (4th & 9th). The rest of us Cs are going to have to up our game, clearly!
Well-deserved Premier Class winners were Andrew de Mora (1st), Mary Maynard (2nd) and Alan Denison (3rd). Visit https://www.fromewessexcameraclub.com/dpi-opening-oct-2018.html to see all the scoring images.
Have you seen an Old Git's Hat?
A serious question. Tom Fahey's hat, proudly stating that "Old Gits Rule", precious because his daughter gave it to him, has gone missing. It seems he left it at Beckington one Friday evening recently and that someone took charge of it for him. But who that someone was, nobody can remember. If you have it, then please do bring it along on Friday and give it back to the Old G.... Sorry - to Tom in person! He'll be so very grateful.
Tony Gervis FRPS, an eminent and widely travelled photographer, will be speaking at Calne Camera Club on Monday 22nd October. Examples of his work may be found on his web site at www.tonygervis.com. This promises to be an excellent evening and Calne look forward to seeing some FWCC members at the Lansdowne Hall, Derry Hill, Calne, SN11 9QY.
And, speaking of Calne ....
.... David has had an amazing 100+ submissions from which he and his team will choose the 10 most suitable entries for the Multiclub battle next month. He will not be in a position to announce which the top 10 photographs are until Thursday, so we shall hold next week's newsletter back for a day, to bring you all the news.
Your Salon needs you! FWCC members enter for free, and you still have time left. Visit https://www.fromewessexcameraclub.com/salon-info.html
The Salon selection weekend (10th - 11th November), like the Camera Fair (28th October), needs all hands on deck. If you can help at either event, please don't be shy about coming forward.
