Douglas Vale Vineyard Exhibition – 20th January

We have been asked by Douglas Vale Vineyard to participate in their Festivities by exhibiting some of our Club’s
Photographs. John & Susie Smith, Paul Barron, John Upton, Frank Kolver, Linda Appleby, Colin Bennett and Chris Randall
exhibited some of their already framed/mounted/on canvas Photos.

No sale was made, although John Smith has someone very interested in his Goliath Heron Image. Here’s holding thumbs, John !
We were entertained by Australia Sing, some Ukulele Players and Krista – the Zumba Instructor and her Group.

The ‘Tasting Room’, just next to us was well frequented and as a result we had a lot of feet passing by and out of decency, I suppose,
a lot of people had a look at the images before they could, guilt-free, go through to the Tasting Room. We might have picked up at least 6-8
people interested in visiting the Club and maybe becoming members. That alone would make the whole day worth our while.

A special thank you to Colin for his Print-Stand-rig he took out to the Vineyard on Friday already, and to Chris who trekked out there to help him.

POTY & DIOTY Evening

We had a lovely evening, filled with laughter, jokes and good food in the company of friends and members of the Club and their spouses.
We have not gone home as late in a long, long time. Thank you to each and everyone who stayed until the very end. I appreciated that very much.

Anita Targett was the lucky person whose number got drawn in the Raffle for a Full Day Tuition by Will Eades. Lucky girl !

John Smith was crowned the undisputed Winner with his image selected as TOP OVERALL IMAGE for 2017 . What was that bang ? Just a beautiful image,John. Straight
into the Northern Zone Club Competition with that one…thank you, Sirree…
Linda Appleby won the PRINT Division with her entry : A well-protected Family. Gary Bretell (the PIOTY Judge last year, said : A definite winner for Northern
Zone Set Subject entry in 2018 – tell that ‘girl’…so ‘Linds…you are hereby informed that he thought it a cracker image, so straight into Northern Zone Set Subject
(Australian Nature) with that one.

Roy Killen lectured on which images to choose for a National or International Competition-entry. Very interesting.
