September Meeting

Judy has passed on a few links that may be worth looking over before the September meeting. 

She thought by spreading these to our members, they could view and study them in preparation for the practical session.

This way we will be able to cut down on time needed for the Wednesday night. (As Judy will have to be at Provender to set up early)

precedes the monthly meeting.
START 7PM Sharp.

Hi Peter

I came across your associations website.  I am hoping you can help me.  We are offering a very significant collection for Dr. Garry Scroop, who collected, amongst many things, cameras.  His camera collection ranges from the earliest of wet and dry plate cameras, 1920's - 1940's cameras, and 1950's + 35mm cameras.

It is a very significant collection, one which I am certain members of the photographic clubs would be interested in viewing. 

Is it possible to pass on the details of the collection to your member clubs, rather than me trying to contact them all individually?

Further details of the "The Dr. Garry Scroop Auction" can be found at

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
