The 2018/19 club season closed with a very enjoyable and relaxed evening to present all the trophies and medals for the season. Chairman Ramesh Naik did the honours, apart from the medals that he won, which were presented to him by Bill Weaver, a longstanding and loyal member. The lady members were particularly successful in taking 5 of the 7 winners’ awards.
They were – Kay White (on the left), a new member this season, who took the quarterly PDI trophy, Photograph of the Year (PDIs) and Shoot A Theme awards.
Janet Marshall (centre), Club secretary, won the quarterly print competition plus the Chandler Cup for the overall winner of the quarterly print and PDI competitions.
Male members were represented by Drew Malloch who took the Photograph of the Year award for prints, and also the Brian Hodgson trophy for prints. In addition, silver and bronze medals were presented for members taking second and third places in each competition.
There was a display of this season’s prints for members to peruse again, and a delightful buffet provided by Marianne Chandler, Sarah Simmonds, Dave Sherwood, and last but not least, Ramesh Naik, whose wife very kindly prepared some delicious cakes. Grateful thanks to all those involved with this.
Thanks must go to our chairman Ramesh for steering a very successful ship once again, and we look forward to next season, which opens on 13th September
