Club Night Summary #128

Signing off for 2021

We wish all of members and families a happy Christmas and look forward to a better New year for everyone following so much uncertainty in the world. It has been difficult at club level in finding a meeting formula that works for all.

In order to comply with current guidelines, we have used a mixture of hall and Zoom meetings in the first half of the season and this looks set to continue into the New year. During January all meetings until the 27th will take place on Zoom. We value every members Involvement in club activities and have had a good first section to the season with great competitions both Internal and external, we have also had some great guest speakers on various photography topics. We naturally are missing some workshop activities which Involve working closely together on projects etc. This is an area we are hopeful will be Improved in the coming months.

We have a great second half of the season planned and hope that meetings will not continue to be disrupted for too long into the New year. We would all love to get back to safe meetings in our hall and enjoy progressing with our photography with our like minded inspired members. In the meantime we look forward to seeing everyone on Zoom on Thursday 6th January where we host the NW fed semi final, a great opportunity to view two other clubs (Watford and Pinner CC) battle for a place in the final.

The following week we have our Triptych and Nature competitions a chance to win the first silverware of the season. Competitions that always attract a high level of entrants. A great time over this break to prepare some entries.

Our rearranging Zoom social night was very entertaining with Rod Lacey producing and hosting some great Quizzes once again. The evening was peppered with photography conversation and screen sharing of great Interest to all. Thanks to everyone that attended.

Don’t forget to try and visit Croxley Library over Christmas to view Vanessa’s arranged print exhibition of members prints. Also if you get a chance complete the survey in the newsletter, to have your say on club activities.

Thank you to the Club Committee who’s hard work and support has enabled the Club to continue in unprecedented times by their professional diligence in each of their Individual roles. Thank you to every member who has been Involved so far this season whether on Zoom or in the hall or both, It is really appreciated.

Enjoy the break and look forward to seeing you on Zoom on January 6th Merry Christmas
