Number of prints that can be entered

The new version of the website has features that allow for managing the maximum number of entries. However the club rules of allowing a different number of entries for each grade cannot be accomodated.

To allow B grade members to enter up to five prints the maximum number is now set to five. Advanced and A grade should only enter three prints.

Thank you Phil Whitman

Last night, Phil delivered a very interesting presentation on aerial photography. He covered the early history which involved pigeons, kites balloons and planes to the present day drones. The presentation sparked a lot of interest and discussion and ended with a video on the very recent Avalon Air Show. Phil also showed some of his aerial and drone images.

It was a great night, which was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you Phil.

This will be another session that should not be missed.
