On Sunday Peter and I will be going to the L&CPU AGM at Chorley. It is the 13th or 14th that I have attended.
There is nothing special on the agenda but you never know, exciting things can happen on the day.
There is one thing that puzzles me a bit; the plan for the Big Day, a much loved event, becoming a strange event centred around print competitions for club members “without distinctions”. Now you all know how much I value support for beginners but is such an idea going to attract sufficient support?
We can ask Bob tomorrow night if he knows anything about it but, there is the other surprise, Bob is down to leave the executive committee this year.
The Novice Championship would be an un-mounted ‘A4’ print competition, and be in two sections. Open Colour and Open Monochrome. Each club can enter 6 images from 6 different authors in each section (entry quantity from each club to be confirmed).
