Our next meeting will be held on August 29th
Our last meeting
Many thanks to Phil Ramsden who at the last moment came along to give us an overview of macro photography then stayed for the rest of the evening helping members come to terms with this form of photography. Those present enjoyed the evening and as always it is a great help to us all when we have someone looking over our shoulder to guide us.
August Birthday Draw
The number 8 has been very lucky for Leslea Hills. On the 8th of the 8th she was presented with a beautiful grandchild then followed it up at our last meeting with her ticket number 88 being drawn out of the hat to give her a $50.00 dinner voucher to dine in any of the Pittwater RSL restaurants. The prize was kindly donated by Pittwater RSL.
From Mike and myself a very BIG thank you to those who stepped up to the plate and filled in for us during our absence.
An especially big thank you to Bill who not only took over my job as Secretary, but stepped in for our President, Peter and also our Treasurer, David. It was a big load for him to carry, thank you Bill.
UB Art Shack
Last weekend we visited the UB Art Shack and were totally blown away by the photography and art that can be found in the shack. Ulla and Bjorn have combined their extraordinary art and photography to produce some outstanding images.
UB Art Shack can be found at 2 Cairnes Road, Glenorie.

FCC Interclub 2016
In the next few days we will be sending you an email asking for prints to be brought along to our next meeting for possible selection to the 2016 FCC Interclub. As we have copies of digital images these will not be called for. The FCC have given member clubs absolutely no prior information regarding this interclub until this weekend with a window of only two weeks to have our selections completed and delivered for the competition. So if you have any prints you would like to include for selection in addition to those called for during the week please bring them along on Monday night.
Many of us find it difficult to photograph our beautiful pets. If you fall into that group and would love some beautiful images then contact Brian or perhaps recommend him to your friends.
