THIS WEEK AT THE CLUB
Thursday 30 March
Presentation – “The Art of Macro” with Tony North
A great opportunity to prepare us for getting out in the fields during springtime. Tony has a passion for macro and landscape photography and says there’s something about spending a few hours in a wildflower meadow capturing images of butterflies and dragonflies that really excites him. Hopefully his talk will also excite and inspire us for what is the perfect time of year.
7.45pm at the USC
The support of members in running the club is vital to maintain its future. There are currently two vacancies to join the Executive Committee for the 2023/24 season onwards; elements of each role could be divided between members to spread the workload:
Responsibilities include: Organising the annual programme of speakers, workshops and competitions. Clive has already begun working on the 23/24 programme and is happy to support the new Programme Secretary. This role could also be divided between a couple of members. Attending committee meetings (around 6 per year, held on Zoom). Club Secretary
Responsibilities include: Sending the weekly newsletter through Mail Chimp. Charlotte will provide full training on how to use this system. Attending committee meetings (around 6 per year, held on Zoom), writing agendas and taking minutes. If you are interested, or would like any more information, please speak to any member of the committee.
The club has the opportunity to hold an annual exhibition again – the first since Covid. However, this will not be able to take place without the support of other members. Jobs will include setting up the exhibition, marshalling the event (short shifts) and taking it down afterwards. If you are prepared to help, or would like more information, please speak to Brian.
RETURN OF TROPHIES
If you have a trophy from last season, please return it to the club by the end of April so that it can be engraved with this year’s winners.
