composite-lcpu-ko-2016That heading needs some explanation. The L&CPU is our Federation of photo clubs and societies, about one hundred in all. They help us with insurance and many organisational matters, keep a register of judges and lecturers who will visit clubs at special rates, and organise 4 big competitions each year. This is one such competition.

Last year we came within an ace of winning, in fact tying for first place only to lose the tie-break.

This year we were not so successful, but turned in a good performance for =13th place out of 45 clubs taking part.

Each club enters 8 images; the last one always being a reserve (for the tie-break). How many images are used depends on the number of clubs entering and this year it was very popular, resulting in only 4 images being required.

The judge simply eliminates the images he least prefers in a series of rounds. 2 of ours went out in the first round but Martin McGing’s Grasstrack Racers and Ian Whiston’s Leopard Club Affection fared better, making Round Four and Round 5 respectively. Chorley PS won the event.

Full results are now available HERE. Note that we tied with WIGAN 10!
