PRESIDENT'S REPORT 2019
Thanks to everyone for your contribution to the running of the club. All efforts are appreciated.
The essays continue to challenge and entertain us. I am pleased at the quality of the stories being told especially the personal content. I encourage all to use the essays to explore and practise their creativity.
This year for the third time we had a club exhibition in Penrith Library with the cost of the printing paid by the camera club.
David Pearson gave a good talk on The Sound of Silence and many thanks to him. It took some pressure off me.
The judges this year were limited to Graeme Robinson, Jeff Akers and we had Kerry Boytell presenting her work and we thank them for their contribution.
This year's Vivid outing was successful. We practiced double exposures.
The 2018 Penrith Show was very successful with the quantity and quality of prints remaining high. Thanks to all who participated and helped out. I hope you will continue to support the Penrith Show. The exhibition of winners and highly commended for 2019 will again be in the library for the month of September.
The judge for this year's Show will be Jeff Akers. I have managed to retain the prize money to include some highly commended with a prize of $10. Sonja Breckenridge has continued to give the Show some money and this year will be allocated to the B/W section. The Henry Sports Club has also allocated money for the Show.
We introduced a new scheme that subsidised the cost for anyone putting at least 10 images. The trial was a success.
I would like to thank the following members who assisted in looking after the Show: Rina Fitzpatrick, Margaret Woolerton, David and Ros Pearson, Steve and Simone Waters and Scott Bailey.
Also thanks to the following members who helped at the judging of the prints: Scott, Simone, Steve, David and Ros.
