This is a strange year for everyone. Like everyone else, we in the club have been badly affected by the Covid 19 virus pandemic. Club meetings and outings have been suspended since early March.
However, the Committee have kept our POTY running, with entries being submitted on the normal dates. They are being judged in the normal way, with the same judges. Committee member John O'Neill is putting together a short video with the judges' comments and results and this is put up on the website on the Monday nights that we would normally have a meeting.
We are coming up to our summer break. The final POTY entries for the first half of the year have been submitted and the results will be posted on the website on Monday 25th May.
In a first for the Club, we had a Zoom talk by guest speaker, Bernard Geraghty last Monday night, 11th May. Bernard is a full time professional photographer, running photo tours and workshops all over the world. He spent about an hour and half showing some of his images, primarily from Ireland and other parts of Europe. About 25 members tuned in for what was an excellent talk. Club member Tudor made contact with Bernard on behalf of the club.
The results of our Summer Flower Panel competition will be posted on the website tomorrow night, Monday 18th May. There should be some cracking images in.
