Keith Mashiter receives his award certificate from Chairman John Keele
The club held its first meeting of the new season on Wednesday 2nd September in its usual venue - the Cellar Bar in Kennaway House -
located in the heart of Sidmouth near the seafront. The chairman pointed out that it was 'good to be back' after the long summer break, especially so after
we had just experienced the wettest August on record in Sidmouth, when no less than 7 inches of rain fell during the month - three times the average!
Members were treated to a feast of good photography with a showing of the best images from the Western Counties Photographic Federation (WCPF)
exhibition which was held last May at Buckfast Abbey. The exhibition covered all genres of photography, although members felt the travel and nature
sections provided the strongest images.
Before the meeting. the chairman John Keele, presented Keith Mashiter with an award certificate for his third place in the Projected Image category (PDI)
of the Devon Clubs Battle.
Members are reminded that entries are due for Competition 1 (1 print and two PDIs) at the latest by the next meeting on Wednesday 16th September. This season,
Tony Spooner has taken over responsibility for the competition Prints, while Tony Velterop continues in his role as Competition Secretary for PDIs.
The meeting on 16th September will start half an hour earlier, at 7pm, to allow extra time to show all the images from Summer Rally in Wells. It should be a good evening
as initial reports from David and Marjorie Young suggest the standard is very high this year!
