We are holding a grand raffle and have already received some excellent prizes from some of our Sponsors. I would like to take this opportunity to ask for more prizes please. If you have one or two you would like to donate please email me and I will add them to the list (email@example.com), and look forward to receiving them on the day, if not before.
We would also like to ask if your club owns a wooden print stand (the kind that can hold 10 or more prints) we would like to borrow for the day at the Dora Phillips Hall. We would require a member from your club to bring the stand along on the day and take it home at the end of the day. It is expected to be a fun packed day, which I hope everyone will enjoy. It will be your only chance to see the entire accepted prints in one day. Come along and celebrate the excellent work from the camera clubs in our area. Some of our sponsors will be having tables at the Dora Phillips Hall and it would be an opportunity for to pick their brains and maybe bag your self a bargain to boot. I will be on hand all day to answer any questions relating to the exhibition, and it will be your chance to have your say about your exhibition. You can help shape the future of the exhibition and make our show case event even better.
I hope to see as many of you there as can make it. Raffle tickets will be on sale from today and on the day. You can get your tickets by emailing me direct or on the day. Please remember to contact me if you have prizes for our raffle. The event is open to anyone with an interest in photography so tell your friends and family.
