Club Night Summary #129

Happy New Year!

A busy week for the club to start the New Year. We had a committee meeting on Tuesday night. The 2nd round of the Rosebowl Inter club Competition on Zoom, hosted by Field end on Wednesday evening and our own first club meeting since before Christmas on Thursday, where we hosted the semi final of the NW fed competition between Watford and Pinner Camera clubs. Quite a start to the Year!

In the Rosebowl competition we faced Princes Risborough, Buckingham and Field end Camera clubs. An enjoyable night, where once again we can be proud of our entries from our talented members. The final result was;

Princes Risborough241 points
Buckingham 249 points
Croxley259 points
Field End265 points

A great overall team performance! Thank you to those members that managed to tune in to support and enjoy the night. It was good to host the NW fed semi final on our club night, giving us the opportunity to see the standard of photography presented by both Pinner and Watford Camera clubs. It was also Interesting to hear the comments of the nominated experienced judge Chris Palmer, as he unraveled the high standard of Images to award the points.

Congratulations to Watford who were the ultimate winners on the night. It only seems a short time ago that we were in a similar position battling for a place in the final, when we faced Amersham last season.

We now turn our attention to the first trophy competitions of this season in our programme this Thursday. Once again on Zoom, where we will decide the winners of both the Nature and Triptych Cups. Good luck to all that have entered.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday, Steve
