Wednesday Night Group

WNG evenings are meant to be fun, practical and friendly. Held in the back room of NVH, or via Zoom, on alternate Wednesdays during our season. The 2021-22 agenda seeks to be suitable for both NVH on-site meetings and via Zoom. The email address to send all WNG images to (unless bringing on the night on a memory stick) is : hpswng@gmail.com and should be sent at least 24 hours in advance of the night, stating what the images are for. Where meetings are via ZOOM images MUST be emailed in.
For non-competition nights, if we are able to meet in NVH, please bring images on a memory stick. If we are still meeting via Zoom, {Or if you are remote} please send to WNG email address . If we are still on Zoom and 4 competition images prove hard to manage we may have to revert to 3 images.
NOTE the change to HPS image sizes: Images should now be sized at 1600 x 1200 dpi; be JPGs and preferably in sRGB colour space.

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

When back at NVH, members in charge on the night are responsible for opening up and closing, getting the equipment ready, bringing the milk and making the tea! That doesn’t mean everyone else can sit and do nothing! Most jobs get done quicker when several people help. Also there may still be covid-related tasks such as ‘cleaning’ all touched objects (eg chairs, kettle, switches…) before leaving.
If you can’t host on your planned night, let me know as early as possible (les@lespickstock.co.uk).
