2016/17 Print Competition Winners

Dear Members,

Here are the results of the 2016/17 Cannock Photographic Society monthly print competitions.

In the advanced mono competition, we have a tie for 1st place, with Dave Byrne and Paul Hassell sharing the honours.  Steve Clifford achieves a creditable 3rd.

And in the advanced colour, Dave Byrne just pips Carl Mason by 1 point to claim first place, with Paul Hassell coming in 3rd.

In the intermediate mono competition, Richard Moorse takes 1st place, Bob Cooper 2nd and Steve Moore 3rd.  Richard is therefore promoted to the advanced mono section for next season.

In the intermediate colour, Richard Moorse takes 1st place, Steve Moore 2nd and Steve Clifford 3rd. Richard is therefore promoted to the advanced colour section for next season.

My congratulations go out to all participants in what turned out to be closely fought competitions.  It is heartening to see several new members entering and acquitting themselves very well indeed.

Now it’s time to get out again, and to prepare for the 2017/18 season.

Happy snapping to you all.

Kind regards

Richard Moorse
Monthly Print Competitions Secretary

Curry Night

Dear Members

Here’s a couple of social events for your diaries;- we plan to hold a curry night at the Shabab in Cannock on the 12th June and the 4th September. I need to get an idea on numbers and partners are welcome too.

If you want to enjoy a bostin curry and good company, please let me know. I’m collecting names for Monday 12th June, initially but if you want to put your name down for September, that’s okay too.

If you can email on richard.moorse15@talktalk.net to advise, that would be great.
