A message from our chairman - Tony White

I trust you have all enjoyed a fabulous Summer and taken some fantastic photographs, which I am looking forward to seeing.

Well it is nearly time to return to the Madginford Hall  to commence another season of the Camera Club.

The Club opening night is Tuesday 3rd September 2019.
Very soon we will be embarking on three outside competitions.  The Marley Medallion, The Ross Cup and the PAGB Print Competition in Blackburn.
Steve Carroll is going to be looking after "Outside Competitions"  together with his ECG Group  (External Competitions Group) 
They will be viewing and selecting pictures for those competitions.
If you have any pictures which you would like to be considered for competition will you please bring them to the club during the 1st and 2nd weeks.
You will need to give them to Steve Carroll together with your contact details.   i.e Email address and Contact No.
If you do not wish to enter “Outside Competitions” will you please advise that fact to Ben Kirby or Myself.
I am really looking forward to a great and interesting season. 
We have some excellent speakers coming to see us. Some good competitions in house and some of the best Judges reviewing the photographs.
The Wildlife Group - The Digital Group  - The Portrait Group  are available to those wishing to join them.
The standard of Photography over the last couple of years has been terrific. Lets keep that up!
