Xmas Greetings

Happy Christmas &
A Very Special New Year

On behalf of the committee of the Yea Camera Club, we would like to wish all members and their families and friends  a Happy Christmas and a safe  New Year with all their loved ones.

We hope that you enjoyed this year’s programme of learning and outings. Certainly the standard of our photography has increased, and our membership has been well represented in several local competitions.

Next year’s programme is well under way and will incorporate  several  ideas from the membership for both training purposes and outings. We also hope to re- introduce  the Camera Club Photographic  Exhibition in The Cup weekend.

A final reminder for the matt cutting day January 5th. And all display photographs for Rotary to Judy at the garage or Kim at her house in Aldous street by January 14th.

Enjoy the season, have fun on holidays, stay safe on the roads and cherish the time with family.

Bushrodders in town

This morning the Bushrodders were in town for half an hour on their way to Eildon. Below a couple of shots taken in quite wet conditions.

Photo Mounting Workshop

Mounting of Photographs

For display and competition purposes your photographs need to be mounted on Matt Board.

You can purchase mounts already cut to size from various outlets including in Yea, but it can be expensive. The alternative is to cut your own and several members have expressed a desire to do so but need a refresher course at least, in cutting.

There will be a workshop in the 
R.S.L Hall

Saturday 5th January 2013 @ 9.00am

The club has the cutter and tools, but you must bring your own board. Mount/Mat board  

Board can be purchased in full sheets or half sheets. A full sheet - (A0-1189 x 841 mm) makes 6 A4 frames.

Board can be purchased from FrameCo 23 Ceylon Street Nunawading, Ph 1800 033 619 or Picture Framers Corner Canterbury and Dorset Roads, Bayswater

This is an ideal opportunity to prepare mounts for the Rotary Display in January. Remember each member is asked to provide 6 to 10 mounted prints (min 8" x 10") for the display. All prints to be delivered to Kim W before 16 January 2013 .

Come on - Have a go!!!!
See you all there.
