Members Night – Thursday 29th November 2018

Members Night – Thursday 29th November 2018

Members are invited to contribute their work or presentations for this night. It is hoped that some members will have created AV presentations following Tony’s  session in early November  but many other subjects are positively welcomed. Please let Paul or Simon know on what subjects you would like to present by Tuesday 27th November.

We have three members kindly come forward with presentations, but we are still looking for more members to make their contributions to the night. These are held so that members can present their work to all of us, or ask questions or discuss burning items for them. If any of you have something you would particularly like input on, then please ask the question to the Paul or Simon in the same way, and we will try to find someone who will talk on this for everyone.  Please contribute.

Melbourne Carnival – Saturday 14th July – Assistance Required.

We are coming up to the First exhibition of the year – The Melbourne Carnival on Saturday 14th July.

This gives us our chance to promote the club and show off our work, to improve local awareness and to help gain new members.

To make sure this runs smoothly we need club members to volunteer their time (1 – 2 hours) to assist with this exhibition.  Again, we have been requested to man the gates . Manning the gates is a worthwhile job, as a club we receive a cash award for doing this role that goes towards our annual fund raising.  We are looking for the following:-

  1. To help set the stand between 9:30 – 11:30hrs.
  2.  To man the stand between 12:00 – 17:00hrs
  3. To man the Main Gate 12:00 – 14:00hrs
  4. Then dismantle the stand after 17:00hrs and return boards etc to Thomas Cook hall.

We also need you to submit your images to display. We are arranging a collection of your prints at Harpers on Thursday 12th July at 21:00hrs.  If you cannot make it to Harper’s you can please let us know by email and we can make alternative arrangements. If you could also indicate if you are happy for the photos to be sold on the day, it would be appreciated

Please contact me at the following e-mail address (tpedley@gmail.com) or Paul (paulatockbrook@gmail.com) with your offers of help so that we can plan the day.
