Just wondering as the club is 65 years old if we new guys could get to see some of the old days photos over the hole of te club historyDecember 17, 2012 at 2:06 pm #2387
Like that idea!
Can’t make it on Thursday though as my wife’s birthday (a milestone one too!)December 17, 2012 at 10:11 pm #2392
21 THATS SPECIAL.December 18, 2012 at 10:09 am #2394
I don’t know if Tom has any old work but we don’t keep things as a rule – remember that we had prints, then prints and slides – all returned as we went along. We do have PDIs going back to 2004 0r 5.December 18, 2012 at 10:54 am #2400
Thats a pity an opportunity missed. Is there any way some of the members may have some prints/negs left or slides that can now be converted and evenput towards a potted History of the club? This could be a taster is and it might be nice to put towards our Century in Crewe. Now there’s a thought 100 years!December 18, 2012 at 2:25 pm #2402
I think we need to chirp up a bit sooner with these sort of suggestions as I am sure it would take quite a bit of preparation and planning to put together into something worthwhile and commemorative. This is a very busy time of year for everyone. There is however the makings of an interesting exhibition if older or life members had earlier award winning work still available which could be displayed along with more recent stuff up to the present day. A history of the process of progression from traditional to digital would be a good accompaniment.
A lot of work though and would need someone with an interest in the history of the club and knowledge of members work (plus time and patience) to volunteer I am sure.
A really good suggestion and one to think about. However …… the suggestion is always the easy bit 😉December 18, 2012 at 4:51 pm #2403
My first photo club Altrincham & Hale have a club Historian on the committee. In 1963 I had to leave following my career. But just a few years ago when researching for their centenary not only could they trace me–but produced the 1962 club exhibition programme which detailed me winning the main award.My late wife and self were invited to make the centenary awards.December 18, 2012 at 6:03 pm #2406
John i did not think that you or the club would hold any of peoples work and yes this will take a bit of doing, but i wondered if it was possible to contact some folk you know of old to see if you can get any old prints or slides, a shame i sold my slide projector only 4 months back..December 18, 2012 at 7:25 pm #2407
I’ve been looking through some of the records and though I don’t have any photos I do have a potted history of the club which I put together for the Golden Jubilee.
It’s in the form of a Newsletter I used to produce for the club in the old pre-digital days. I’ll bring copies along on Thursday.
I trawled through the old committee minutes to get the story.December 18, 2012 at 9:44 pm #2411
That’s wonderful Tom. I will look certainly forward to reading it.December 19, 2012 at 10:52 am #2414
After Thursday we could put it on the website.
I have found something to show tomorrow night – the first proper Jim Harrison Trophy from 2005.
We started PDI comps in 2004 – one of the first clubs to do so – I have the images but I don’t think you will want to see them! In 2005 we put on our second PDI Comp and Jim Harrison sponsored the trophy – that was the proper start of the Jim Harrison Trophy and our first really creditable efforts at digital images. Darren. Ian and Wallace will be interested to know that there was a MONO SECTION!! It was won by John Corbett (John & Jane moved to Kendal shortly afterwards incidentally).
Does that sound OK?
