Welcome to our two new potential members. Hope you both become full participating financial members next year.
Final arrangements were discussed re the Interclub Competition evening to be held in Whangarei on Wednesday October 20th. It appeared we were going to be very short on members attending this function, but after numerous phone calls we got the number needed to run the evening successfully.
I can now report the evening was a great success, with many comments coming from other clubs that it was very well organized. A credit to all who attended. Thankyou for all the work that was put in to achieve this.
As you can see by the photos below (thanks to Vin) we certainly did not disgrace ourselves.
Whangarei Club came first, Mid North and Wellsford tied for Second, and Dargaville came third.
The second photo is of Denis with the image that won the overall prize. The colours in this image were beautiful. It is an image looking through water to the rocks below, taken by a member of the Wellsford Club.
Whangarei Club will be hosting the evening next year, and this time it is going to be ‘Digital Only.’ (No prints) The subject will be ‘Toy Story.’
Our next competition is the Waimate Show to be held on the 13th November. Conditions of Entry and Entry Forms can be downloaded from: www.bayofislandsshow.co.nz (pages 17 & 29)
