21 April AGM we need ideas for next season… it’s your group/ideas/preferences LesP

 

The 2019/20 season was interrupted by the Covid emergency, so was not completed. This new programme may be altered due to further circumstances.  Clearly ‘how’ we operate will be different!

But the intention is to maintain our ‘fun’ approach to Wednesday nights, virtual or not!
The ‘competition titles’ are for you to interpret how you like… the wackier the better!

 

We are postponing the Hoylake area photos: taken during the year 2020 to be a record of the Hoylake and West Kirby area as a snapshot of activities, style and features of the 70th year since our inception as this is rather an important tribute to/for HPS.
But it now gives you another year to capture those great images!  Categories already advised.

 

We need 3 members to provide a mini 10minute ‘tip talk’ (see above) – if you can do, please email Les on l.pickstock@btinternet.com

 

ZOOM – it should be appreciated images presented via Zoom cannot match your originals (for a variety of technical reasons, including transmission compressions and it ‘sees’ the image on the screen, NOT the original JPG image). Also, it is best if the screen sharer is on a PC/laptop or otherwise a good quality tablet (and has the ‘share screen’ capability/control – some don’t).
