Club Meeting Report, Presentation Evening - Tuesday 23rd April 2013.

On Tuesday 23rd April, the last meeting of the 2012/13 season was Morpeth Camera Clubs Annual Presentation Evening.
Outgoing Club Chairman Dave Illingworth thanked the committee and all members for their help and support during his two
years in office as he handed over the post to new Chairman Steve Mcdonald, whose first duty was to present the trophies
and awards to the winners of the Club Competitions which had been held throughout the year.
Club Competition Secretary Davy Bolam started the proceedings with an audio visual presentation showing a selection of
work entered in the seasons projected digital image competitions with a minimum of three images from each author. Set to
music this was the ideal format to review the huge variation of subjects photographed by members throughout the year.
