Newsletter #101 25th February 2022

Penryn Camera Club - Season 2021-2022 - Newsletter No. 101 Editor - Derek Godridge

Most important is that the WCPF Member’s Exhibition closing date is rushing up so if you are thinking of entering then follow the links in the WCPF section below and don’t forget if you have PRINTS I will hand them in for you on the 4th March.

Don’t forget Karen’s Truro Cathedral Tour – please meet up outside the cathedral at 10:50 prompt ready for an 11am Entry.

Last night seemed to go down quite well with my tour of South West USA, so I think I got away with it! Don’t forget that we are always looking for members to give us a “show and tell” so if you fancy a go just talk to Karen. As I showed with my new hat on below - If I can do it then it can’t be that hard ;-)
