Quote of the week (just couldn't resist this!):  "Gadgets are to men what shoes are to women."   Eolake Stobblehouse  (Danish artist, photographer and writer)

 

We are still trying to locate our Spyder and Munki – this is equipment for calibrating computer screens.    We would have hired them out to members and we would really like for some of our other members to continue to be able to avail of this.

We are asking you all to have a really good look in your homes to see if you have either of these calibrators – it is so easy to forget that you have it.    To save embarrassment you can leave it in to reception in the Seven Oaks Hotel with my name on it and they will pass it on to us.

PLEASE – have a look and return it if you have it.

PLEASE NOTE:  On Wednesday we are in the ROSSMORE ROOM –  further up the stairs, through the door and its the room straight ahead.    ( A fashion show as well as ploughing traffic might necessitate parking elsewhere – do bear that in mind. )

WEDNESDAY NEXT:  7 – 8pm Beginner's Class – Light   (Bring your cameras)
WEDNESDAY NEXT:  8 – 10PM – Still Life photography – BRING YOUR CAMERAS (AND TRIPODS IF YOU HAVE THEM)      As we are in a different room we might be challenged for space but we will do our best.

More entries for our "Night" Club League Theme will be taken on Wednesday – if you missed last week's deadline.    

NEXT CLUB LEAGUE THEME:  "CLOSE UP"         Submission night:  Wednesday 20th November

Yes, members it is that time of year again – our Open Night when we welcome back members and give a special welcome to new ones.     Spread the word around that we are starting back.     Same time, same place.

We will be enrolling for full membership (which includes classes) and for classes only – full membership is still the same – €80 and classes only is €50.

We are really looking forward to another enjoyable season.
