Newsletter #64 4th June 2021

Editor - Derek Godridge PCC News of the Week:

  1. Some great news, our Chairman has been contacted by Penryn Town Council to offer our club the Town Hall for our annual display during Penryn Fair Day on 28th August. So here is your opportunity to submit a few prints for display along with digital images which will be selected from those already seen in competition this year. Victor can supply pre-cut mounts for A4 and A3 prints if you need them.

  2. I also regularly use DS Colour Labs for my large prints at very reasonable cost (cheaper than printing yourself!) and you can upload direct from your PC to here: https://dscolourlabs.co.uk/about/Online-Photo-Printing

Meetings

  1. A good meeting was had last night with lots of chat and critiquing of the Lockdown entries. NO MEETING for the next two weeks as your Committee is meeting to plan the upcoming items etc so if you have anything you want discussed or suggestions for our next programme let Maru know.
