As is our custom, we will be donating the takings of picture sales to our chosen charity. This year we are asking the members to nominate our preferred charity, local or national it is entirely up to you.
    • The Boyle Summer Show this year is on Sunday 23rd August and the organisers have approached the camera club to become involved with the event. The committee have therefore decided, that we will sponsor a Theme-based Photography Competition, which will be rewarded with a perpetual cup. Club members are encouraged to participate and we will announce more details in the coming months.
    • We are planning an inter-club photoshoot with the Swords Camera Club in October, again more details nearer the time.
    • Finally, the next 'Open' themed print motivation is due in July. The committee have been discussing the format of this motivation and decided that in order to give every entry due consideration, mounted photos should be submitted a month ahead with the results being announced at the following meeting. Therefore, everyone taking part should bring their prints along to next month's meeting (June) prior to the results and critique being given at the July meeting.
  • Committee Flickr Selection - John Walsh will select this month's image from the Boyle Camera Club Flickr Pool.
