Tuesday Apr 11th:    Monthly Meeting

The Meeting (start time 2000hrs) will be at our normal venue - The Casson Centre, Rodway Road, Patchway, BS34 5DQ (map)  It is  easiest to access it via Durban Road, off Highwood Road. The Casson Centre is the left hand part of the Patchway Community Centre, immediately next door to the Patchway Town Council Offices. There is off-road parking adjacent to the Centre and further spaces along  Rodway Road, near to the local Spa shop.

The monthly competition theme is 'Animal Portrait'. If you are unsure about the theme then contact Arthur, otherwise send your digital files to Peter by midnight on Sunday April 9th. Unsure about entering? Even if you don't feel you have any winners, send some in to benefit from the audience feedback - it's an ideal way to learn.

We should also have our annual Image of the Year results which is currently being judged by Dr Alex Mustard.

There may also be a short technical presentation.

I don't think we have had any this past month which does come as a surprise. Let me know otherwise.
