1. The annual season to remain as at present: First Wednesday in September to the last Wednesday in August. The weekly meetings will alternate between ‘live’ meetings held at our usual venue and Zoom meetings. All nights to compliment each other, mainly practical tuition. If members have something they would like to have covered, please advise Dave D or the committee.
2. Door fees will remain at £2:50 per night. This will be accepted as membership fees, (Live or Zoom). until such time as membership is increased to a good level. There will be no other fees, i.e. competition entry fees, etc. The only extra costs would be if we had a particular expensive model or similar. There will be possible themed evenings – no competitions as at present. However, there will be ‘competitions’ – 5 DPI per year. These will be judged by members, in secret scoring. A member will give a critical appraisal and the rest will give scores. These will only be revealed as requested by the author. The evenings’ entries will be rated as 1st, 2nd and 3rd. An annual competition will be held at the end of the year. This will be judged by an outside judge.
3. Free membership will be offered to school pupils and college students.
4. During the year, all year, there will be themed outings.
5. After a discussion by the committee Wednesday will be the new meeting day at the Crowstone Church. The next meeting will be on Wednesday 8th December. The week after, the 15th, will be a zoom meeting. Thereafter we will meet again on the 5th January 2022. at the Crowstone Church Hall.
6. Please come back and check for regular updates.
7. The Society will be promoting the teaching of all photographic principals, so if you use a DLR, SLR, of iPhone or iPad you are most welcome to join us!
