SPF Insurance & Club Outings

Musselburgh Camera Club -

At the AGM we referred to the post made a year ago which clarified the club’s insurance coverage under SPF policy. To save members having to delve back through the archives, here is a link to that original message:

If you are arranging a group trip on behalf of the club (i.e. a trip where all club members are invited), please contact the SPF General Secretary or the SPF Treasurer, as described in the original message.

Two more volunteers needed to help with the MCC library exhibition

Musselburgh Camera Club -

Thank you to everybody who has volunteered to help transfer our library exhibition during the summer. Most of the slots are now covered, but we need two more volunteers:

  • Somebody to help Clive Davies with the move from Gullane to Port Seton on 16th June 2018.
  • Somebody to help Steven Beard with the move from Prestonpans to Craigmillar on 14th July 2018.

It doesn’t matter if you have never transferred the exhibition before. Clive and I will show you what needs to be done, and you’ll get a special preview of the exhibition. It takes about 2 hours on a Saturday morning. If you are able to help, please contact John Knox (85newhailes@supanet.com) who is finalizing the rota sheet.

 

Photoshoot at Musselburgh Lagoons – 19th April

Musselburgh Camera Club -

This Thursday, 19th April we will be meeting at Musselburgh Lagoons for our end of season photoshoot. We will meet at 7pm at the car park beside the boating lake, as shown the map below. You can reach the car park from the B1348 at the far side of the race course. Turn left after the race course onto the coast road and look for the sign post to Levenhall Links just after the end of the 30mph zone. Keep going to the end of the road, as shown in red. The final part of the road is often full of pot-holes. If the pot-holes are a problem, you can park at the side of the road and walk across Levenhall Links. There is also some parking at the side of the B1348 beside the houses (you can walk to the lagoons through the gate at the side of the road).

George Todd will be picking up members who would like a lift from in front of the Brunton Theatre at 6:45pm. Please contact George (georgetodd1957@me.com) if you would like a lift. Please note we will not be meeting at the Fisherrow Centre.

Musselburgh Lagoons contains a bird reserve, where birds can be seen coming home to roost around sunset. There are also ducks and swans on the lake. Bring a long lens and a tripod for the wildlife photography. There will also be trees, wild flowers, old masonry and landscapes to photograph.

The current weather forecast for Thursday evening is “sunny intervals with an 8% chance of rain”. So far so good.

The Colour Blue – Tomorrow Evening

Musselburgh Camera Club -

A reminder that we have our last competition of the season tomorrow evening (Thursday, 12th April) at 7:30pm. Please bring along 1, 2 or 3 JPEG images on the theme of “The Colour Blue”, on a CD or data stick. If you are bringing images with you, please try and come early so we have time to load them before we start. If you have already emailed your images to George he will load them onto the laptop for you. The images will be judged by members on the night, and there will be a prize for the best image.

If the weather is kind to us, there will be an outdoor photoshoot next week (19th April). I will be asking for ideas on possible evening locations around the Musselburgh area.

There are still some empty slots on the library exhibition rota. If you can spare a couple of hours on a Saturday to help transfer the exhibition between libraries during the summer, please sign the sheet in room G3. We need two people per slot.
