TPS Meeting Tuesday, 19th February 2019

This week in the Maldron Hotel member Mark Pollock has agreed to show his photographs following a lot of interest after his “Show and tell” after the Christmas break. Mark has some fabulous photos of the Irish Air Corps in training and at work. We have a mine of talent in our club and unfortunately sometimes we only get to see a little of that at our Monthly League competitions and if you happen to be following someone on Facebook or Flickr etc… We have tried over the last couple of months to showcase that talent by getting our own members to show their work. The support for this has been great with the numbers of members turning up on these nights, and we sincerely thank you for this. It is very important that we support our own as well as outside photographers that we get to speak. Monthly League Competition Remember tomorrow night is also hand in night for February’s Monthly League Competition. Please have your prints mounted and ready to be handed in to Andrew and bring your projected entries along on USB. Please also email digital copies of your printed entries to tpscompeitions@gmail.com. We ask you to do […]
