6 Club Battle

Hi all,
A big thank you to all the people who came along to Ardleigh House last night in support of our club in the 6 club battle.....I think we ended up with 19 of us there! A great turn out.
The 6 clubs participating were Upminster, Hornchurch, Thurrock, Brentwood, Barking and North Romford.
It was a digital battle, with each club entering 8 images, judged by Barbie Lindsay.....the scoring system had me baffled for a while, but eventually it sunk in!!
The results were:
place           club                 points
1st            Thurrock                128
2nd           North Romford      118
3rd            Upminster              116
4th            Brentwood             110
5th            Barking                  108
6th            Hornchurch            104
There are 2 competitions coming up in November, and as always it'd be great to see you there. I will send out details tomorrow.
See you later at club.

Chelmsford Panel Competition

Hi all
I attended The Chelmsford Camera Club panel competition on Saturday 12th October, along with Dave and Lin Wilcox.
We entered 2 panels from our club - we opted for the ones which got 1st and 2nd places in our own panel comp;
Fungi of the forest by Sarah Brigden, and
Faces of India by Dave Wilcox
They both had favourable comments from the judge, Richard Walton, who also gave Daves panel highly commended in the competition.
The winning club on the day was Benfleet camera club with a lovely panel depicting slalom canoeists. [is that the right spelling?? sorry if its not!!]
