September 2021 News

Hello and welcome to our latest report.  The club’s summer season is now drawing to it’s close with only two outings remaining ie.

Saturday  Sept. 18th  Silverdale and Arnside.

Tuesday   Oct. 12th    Rufford Old Hall and Martin Mere.

Our recent outing was to Heysham, with mixed conditions, mainly cloud and the odd shower. Testing conditions for making good images !

We were also in attendance at the Garstang Show. Did you manage to see us ? We were kept dry since we shared the Horticulural Tent and quite a bit of interest was shown. Our thanks go to the Garstang Show Committee for allotting us the space.

Our ’21-’22 season starts with our first meeting on Sept.1st in the Arts Centre. For newcomers, we have quite a comprehensive evening with the following features :

A brief analysis of our website,our competitions and a potted history of the Club.  A camera presentation on the use of filters and long exposures ( might I add, not just for newcomers but many members too ! )  A fine buffet,  along with where our membership fees disappear to and how this year will develop (pun !)

The joining fee is £48 but for a taster and any subsequent meetings, we ask for an entrance fee of £5 which will be deducted from the membership fee if you decide to join. Our aim is to provide a safe gathering for all with as much social distancing as can be allowed for with adequate ventilation,

Finally, I wish to thank the Club’s Chairmen and their Committee for steering us through what I believe has been a successful year in spite of the present conditions.
