20 Shot Competition

News from Mick on the 20 shot competition

It is proposed to hold the 20 shot competition on the 19th June 2018 at West Bay.

I have been and done a reckie and got the 20 subjects !!!

What I propose to do is send you all (via E-Mail) the list of subjects on the morning of the 19th, this will then give you the opportunity to either make a day or an afternoon of the event, (weather permitting) I myself aim to be there from around 3 o’clock.

Parking is quite reasonable at £1.60 for 3 hours and free after 6pm, hence being there at about 3pm. I also suggest that we start at 6pm for those who just want to do the evening, I will be in attendance at the car park at 6pm and will have lists of subjects for those otherwise not getting them.

The main carpark in front of the Bridport Arms is currently being resurfaced and should be completed by the 19th but the other carpark just to the right is ok..(see attached Photo)…

On completion of the evening you will have until the Sunday 24th June to get your 20 shot selections to Steve Baker (the Competition Secretary) Remembering to resize your images for a 6X4 print. Also there should be no major post processing only to crop, resize and some slight enhancing.


Summer outings

From Chris; Here are the proposed details of our Summer Outings based on feedback from the members:

Tuesday 15th May: Abbotsbury – I would welcome suggestions as to where to meet. Possibly the Ilchester Arms as they have a reasonable car park? Ilchester Arms: DT3 4JR

Tuesday 29th May: Poundbury: The Poet Laureate: DT1 3GW

Tuesday 26th June: Weymouth Town – suggest meeting under the Town Bridge as we did last time. Choice of pubs!

Tuesday 17th July: The Fat Badger, Wyke Regis. Car parking available or outside on the road. The Fat Badger: 90 Camp Road, Wyke Regis DT4 9HT

Tuesday 19th June: 20 Shot Competition at West Bay Organised by Mick Rose. Suggestions please as to the best car parking.

Saturday 7th July Portland Castle Visit. I have made a preliminary booking for us to have a guided tour around the castle and the price is £8.00 each which includes the entry, guide and guide book. Then we can take advantage of a special deal for tea and cake in the tea rooms for £4.25 each. We need at least 11 people for this and I have booked it for 14.00. There is a car park in the castle grounds. Please can you let me know if you can’t make it as I could book another date.

Hope some of you can make some of these . (I can’t do next Tuesday at Abbotsbury.) Summer outings all meet at 19.30.
