Next Meeting

Hi everyone,

It has come to my attention that tomorrow evening sees switch-on of the Christmas lights in Bulkington that was delayed due to bad weather last week. The switch-on takes place at 6pm but, Leicester Street (directly opposite the centre) will be closed from 4pm until 10pm.
This should not affect access to the Bulkington Village Centre but please be aware it is likely to be much busier than normal.

I am seeking assurances from Fiona at BVC that parking will be available for club members as usual. However, by 7:30pm I expect that it will be less busy than earlier in the evening.

The meeting is a mini competition entitled “See the detail”. This is a projected images with a maximum of two entries. Please bring your entires on a USB stick as normal. Also, we should be High Res from tomorrow too. Please dimension your images at 1600 x 1200 pixels in order to get the maximum resolution for your image.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend due to other commitments, but, I hope you have a great evening.

Regards Ian

Next Meeting

Next meeting is a "Just For Fun" competition, Entries will be 2 DPI ONLY. The subject is "See The Detail", Look forward to seeing your entrys
