Merry Christmas from Boyle Camera Club

Happy Christmas Everyone,

On behalf of the committee, I would like to wish all our members, guest speakers and friends of Boyle Camera Club a Very Happy Christmas and lots of great photographic opportunities in 2022. 

Maybe Santa might even see his way to deliver a new lens or two for those of us who have been very good boys or girls throughout this last year.



Enjoy some quality time with your loved ones, take time to breathe and enjoy the big and little things in your life.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

            ├łnd of Year Message

             To everyone reading this, Thank You for visiting the Boyle Camera Club website. 

            Who would have thought at the start of this year, brimming with hope and excitement at the thought of all the new opportunities 2020 would bring that it would end like this. But just like this year the restrictions, fear and loneliness will end too. Let us be confident of that. 

            This year we had club meetings, guest speakers and educators in our homes via Zoom and whilst we did miss the coming together, photoshoots and social outings we still enjoyed our club. 

            I would like to thank all of the newly elected and previous committee members for making this possible, “Thank You” 

            Monthly Motivations and the 52/52 kept us with the camera in our hand looking for photo opportunities and perhaps looking around our locality with fresh eyes. 

            Looking ahead we are happy to welcome new and returning members into our Club and look forward to a year where everybody can enjoy their photography to it’s fullest. Learning new skills and meeting our camera club friends again. But for now, 2021 will begin with Zoom and we look forward to greeting and hearing from you all on Tuesday 12th. January. Check our site for login details on the 12th. 

            Have a Safe and Happy New Year everyone. 

            Sincerely 

            Bernie O’Farrell 

            Club Chairperson
