5th June 2018

This week at camera club we hosted the 2nd round of the battles with Grimsby camera club. Both teams included exceptional pieces of work. This made judging by our judge Grahame Dunkin very hard but Grahame gave excellent feedback on all images totalling the scores - Skegness 258 and Grimsby 275. Well done to both teams and only 17 points in it. This has given skegness Camera club a total of 493 points when top is only 48 points away at 540 .
Members please remember that at our next meeting on 19th of June we have Horncastle coming to visit along with our guest speaker John Byford. This means our monthly competition on Macro will be pushed back to the 3rd of July. Also if Members are all in favour after our competition we will go for a walk on the beach. We would love your feedback.
