We meet on the second Tuesday of every month of the year; sometimes we're out and about, sometimes we have practical sessions at the school - often with a few words of guidance beforehand - and sometimes we have a presentation either by a club member or an invited speaker.
Our monthly competitions all have a theme, chosen by the club committee from a list of ideas submitted by members who then vote for their chosen winners each month. Every winner is shown in the Hall of Fame and that image also goes through to the annual Picture of the Year competition in January.
One of our very few rules is that competition images must be no more than 7x5 inches in size and must have been taken within the previous 6 months. The December competition which has no set theme ('Anything Goes') is the one exception when we allow pictures to have been taken during the past 12 months.
We have just one competition table which often has a mixture of 'straight' and 'enhanced' images; all are judged equally and may be printed either by members themselves or commercially printed.
