Club Night Summary #125

Intimate Landscape Round 2

External club competitions are still very active in our calendar and last week we had a second round tie in the NW fed Inter club competition.  Last season we were semi finalists in this competition and were hoping for further progress in this years challenge.  Unfortunately we have been tied against a very strong club Amersham CC in this years rounds.  Amersham got the better of us in last season’s semi final!

Last week we fielded a strong set of Images for our second round, carefully selected by our external competition team of Stuart Craig and David Eckland from the pool of nominated entries.

The judge was Steven Galvin who remarked on the high standard presented by all three clubs.  At the half way point we were one point ahead of Amersham with some excellent comments about our Images.  Amersham managed to gain the advantage during the second section with some equally strong Images.  The final result was;

  • Amersham – 181 points
  • Croxley – 177 points
  • Hemel Hempstead – 170 points

A very worthy result against strong opposition.  Thanks to everyone who represented our club with their excellent Images .  We now have the final group round this Thursday in our hall.  It would be great to welcome everyone to another enjoyable night of competition.
On our normal Thursday club night we held our Second round of ‘Intimate Landscape’ to enhance the earlier group nominated Images.  Once again great debate in the selection procedure to Identify further potential Images to represent our club in this external competition to be held early next year.
Thanks to all that attended to help debate and select suitable Images in this quite different category.

Vanessa Lacey has once again managed to negotiate with Croxley library to hold an exhibition of our prints representing the club for a week starting 11th December.  Please bring a couple of your prints to Vanessa this Thursday or the following week to enable her to organise the event.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.
