The eagle eyed amongst you will notice a new menu item on the top - "BLOG"

The idea behind this is (at least initially) is to provide a retrospective overview in the days following each club event, essentially a review of the night, with photos embedded - primarily with a view of documenting what we do, but also enabling those who missed the event, or prospective new members to get a feel for what went on.

The WDCC Facebook Group is now up and running. The group gives club members an online place to chat, share interesting articles and even sell unwanted bits of kit. 

Invites will be sent out via email soon, so keep an eye out!

The amended programme for the year is now published on the events page. Some events still need some details fleshing out, but the structure for the year is now set. You are safe to put these in your diary!

 

Ian and Bernard have managed to resecure the services of guest judges and speakers for new dates, so our programme is taking shape. You will notice the forthcoming events in the near future are now all settled and visible in the sidebar and on the events page. Over the coming days the entire programme will be rebuilt and visible on the website.

The last scheduled committee meeting of the year took place on Monday 16th January. Top of the agenda was the aforementioned scheduling mishap. It appears as though when we were setting this years programme (12-18 months ago) we took a 3 week break over Christmas and New Year. This had the effect of offsetting our program by a week, causing a clash with the Art Club.

As those of you whom attended tonight will know, there has been a scheduling mishap for the club events.

We usually alternate Monday nights with the Art Group who meet in the weeks between the Photography Club meetings.

Somehow we have both managed to book the same Monday's throughout 2016. This was likely our fault as we adjusted our schedule to settle around the Bank Holidays in a better fashion.

The latest club committee meeting was held on Monday 14th November and resulted in the following :-

We have taken on board the feedback into the proposed competition topics for next year, and have dropped the proposed "no editing / straight out of camera" competition and replaced it with "Warrington" to help fuel our efforts to fill the St Rocco's Calendar. Further details will be made available once the proposals for the year are fleshed out.

As noted in a previous news item, club member Richard Connolly was recently awarded the ARPS distinction by the Royal Photographic Society.
