Events Organiser's Report:
The club events and photo slots for the coming year have been arranged taking account of responses to Rachel's survey. The events booklets were distributed.
Winteringham Has Talent exhibition on Saturday 19th May is open to the public 10am-5pm; the Hall will be open for setting up at 9am. In the morning taped music will be played; in the afternoon there will be live music. Refreshments will be available - donations of cakes were requested. Volunteers please, to serve refreshments and to be a 'club presence' since the Camera Club is responsible for this event. Rachel is setting up a rota: no individual needs to be there for the whole day.
Geoff Greaves drew up the floor plan of the event and thanks are due to him for this work.
The Camera Club will have a stall at the Village Fête on 23 June, which this year is to be held at the Manor House, West End.
Joanna Blackburn is taking part in Artisans In Action, where local artists and crafts people may be seen at work (21/22 April).
Golden Jubilee celebration: The Village Hall committee encourage entries for the best decorated house and garden. A prize will go to the winner.
It was suggested that the Club purchase a laptop since currently members loan their own to display slide slows. The Treasurer said there was insufficient money in the funds at present.
Reminder from Ken that members are allowed a maximum of three prints for display on 19 May. A4 prints should be mounted, with a 1" border allowed. Submissions should come to the next meeting on 9 May.
Might we have a photo slot on AGM meetings in future.
