Epsom Printer Workshop

Following an invitation to YCC members. If you are interested please let John C know NOW so we can car pool and advise YRPS how many will attend.

Yarra Ranges Club would like to invite your members to a workshop featuring Epson printers

The Yarra Ranges Photography Society has arranged for Jonathon Dodd, sales engineer from Epson to conduct a printing workshop at our club rooms on Thursday 5th March at 7.15pm

The Doncaster club  generously provided the contact at Epson and I am told that the workshop is quite in depth.

Sorry for the short notice, but when making the initial contact , there was a window of opportunity so we jumped at it.

If you could let me know if anyone is interested, that would be great – and would assist with catering

The venue address is:
Coldstream Community Centre.
Kelso Road, Coldstream

  3. We will arrange our outing to the Toolangi State forest this Sunday Feb15th.
  4. We will organise our presentation of a cheque to the Yea Memorial Hospital.
