I thought it would be easier to list all the upcoming Zoom meetings.

Could members please remember to mute their microphones when requested by Brian. He does explain how to do this but your device may not have the same display as Brian’s if this is so please look for the microphone icon on your screen.

Subscriptions for 2020/2021

The Club’s Executive Committee have strived to produce a full programme for this season. This includes speakers, competitions, members evenings (all via Zoom) and a number of outings. The Committee recognises some members do not wish to participate in the Zoom meetings or may feel dissatisfied with the season’s programme. However, the Club still has overheads and the Committee have agreed to ask members to consider paying the normal subscription of £60 this season if possible. If a member feels unable to pay the full subscription for any reason, the Committee suggest a subscription of at least £30 is acceptable for this season only.

By way of reminder unpaid subs should be sent direct to the Club’s bank account. The Club’s Bank is NatWest Bank, payee“Bromley Camera Club”, sort code 60-04-02- a/c no. 42292212. Please don’t forget to put your name as a reference when making payment.

Zoom Meetings

Zoom meetings have been pre-booked up until Thursday 17 December at 7:45pm. If you have deleted Greg’s email containing the login codes I can let you have them. 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.
