PDI Competition Round 1 to be judged by Paul Parkinson LRPS CPAGB

Covid Cup

Congratulations go to Paul Lehane whose image entitled “Waiting for Wimbledon” was chosen as the winner by the Judge. Peter Milton’s “The Clown” was the runner-up.

It’s subscription time again.

It was agreed at a recent Executive Committee meeting that the subs would stay at the same rate as last year, i.e. £60.00 except for new members who have the reduced rate of £30 for the first year of membership. We have kept the rate at £60 because although we are continuing with the Zoom meetings until the New Year, we are still paying the USC the full rate for our hire of their hall.  

The other change to the subs is that they should be sent direct to the Club’s bank account. Please don’t forget to put your name as a reference when making payment.

It is not too late to sign up to join the meetings each week you just need to download an app called Zoom Meetings.  You also need to let Greg (webmaster@bromleycameraclub.org.uk) have a note of your email address. What will then happen is that on Thursday Greg will email you with a meeting invite. If you accept this you will be patched in to all those others who have joined the meeting. You do not have to have your face on the screen, or have your voice heard you can just listen to what is said by the judge. If you would like more info about Zoom please do not hesitate to speak to Brian (pdisecretary@bromleycameraclub.org.uk) and he will be more than willing to talk you through the process. Start time is 8:00pm but you can log in at any time during the meeting.
