We start our regular season for 2022/2023 on Tuesday September 13th with the following:
1. Show and tell. This is our annual and informal exhibition of members photos, taken over the summer months. Committee Members will be showing a few images and talking about their significance and photo settings used to achieve the shots. Other Members are welcome to show their images, but we ask for no more than five (5) images per photographer.
2. Preparing images for mounting boards. This will involve a demonstration by seasoned members on how to prepare for League Competitions, etc.

We start our new season 2022/2023 with our AGM in the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght, on Tuesday September 6th at 8.00pm. This is a very important event in the club calendar, as we select a new committee to oversee operations and guide the club along and to cater for all our members. It is also a chance for members to voice their opinions on how the club has been run in the past year and to put suggestions to the committee on items that we can do in the year ahead. We hope that as many members can attend.
We look forward to welcoming you all back again and to a great year ahead. It will be great to catch up over a cup of tea or coffee and some nice biscuits, including Jaffa Cakes!
The agenda and the minutes from last year’s AGM have been emailed to all Club members.
As the 2021/2022 season comes to a close,as far as our competition goes, our last Judge for this season is Robert O’Laoire from Offshoot Camera Club, Cabinteely. So when the dust settles and we get out the fancy abacus calculator and work out the scores, we will let you know who the overall winners are in each category.
Also, next week we start our weekly outings around Dublin and other places of interest, members will be emailed details of where and when to meet up
Best of luck to all those who submitted photos for judging this month.
As Tuesday is following the Bank Holiday Monday, we are NOT having a meeting this week.
However, It is still Hand-in night for our last League Competition for the 2021/2022 season. So, please get your images together and send them in. Usual rules apply regarding size and naming of images, and send them to:email@example.com, no later than 8:00pm on Tuesday night.
Next week we will start our outdoor activities, heading out to capture the wonderful sights around us. This we will maintain up to the end of August. We will inform you of our destination well in advance and we will coordinate a meeting point if people wish to carpool.
