I would like to welcome everyone to another season with Musselburgh Camera Club. Thank you to all who came along to this week’s opening night, especially to the potential new members who I hope we can make feel at home. If you signed up to follow the club on the web site and received this post as an email message, congratulations. It worked!
The season didn’t start without its teething troubles, and unfortunately the wrong version of the syllabus was printed. If you are wondering what the actual 2018-2019 syllabus looks like, click here for a copy.
You can print this out for yourself, and I’ll also bring some copies along next week. You will notice our first 4-way competition takes place on 1st November. This is happening early in the season, just like last year, so I would urge everyone to find your best images and email them to George to help the club. You don’t need to wait until the competition submission date. In fact, the submission date for the digital images competition is just 2 weeks away, so you’ll need to start looking for good images anyway.
Talking of competitions, here is a copy of the guide to club competitions I handed out to new members during the opening night.
Some announcements of photographic opportunities coming up soon (click for more details):
- The Battle of Prestonpans reenactment takes place on 15-16 September 2018. There is a parade at 10am on Saturday, and the main event takes place from 11am to 5pm both days. The battle starts at 3pm.
- Historic Scotland plan to light up Edinburgh Castle in the “Knight at the Castle” event on 5th October 2018.
I look forward to seeing you next week, when we will be inspired by a CD of high quality competition images. Can you guess which one will win…?
