New Beginnings for 2024

The year 2023 ended with the sudden transition to MyPhotoClub. A lot of effort has been put in by the Competition Coordinator Rob Clarke and the Webmaster Ian Munro to finish the year with the successful End of Year Dinner and Awards Night Sun Dec 10th.

During the break, MPC will be updated from the initial trial site to add the additional polish that we want for our new site. We now have time to devote to that rather than the effort just to complete the year.

Your committee has been planning 2024 and the competitions have been determined and these will start to appear during the break. The Training has been outlined and potential Lecture presenters have been contacted.

The club starts back on the first Tuesday in February, Feb 6th. You will start to see more entries in the calendar during the break.

I would like to thank the Exec Committee for the big effort during the year and also the out of ordinary effort resulting from te sudden demise of the old website.

And thanks to the members who have helped out in the running of the club.

During the break, take the opportunity to be with family and also to get out and about looking for Nature images for the first competition.

It would be great to see more members coming back to the live meetings.

Have a Merry and Safe Christmas and New Year.
