Storrington were the winners at the Mix n' Match
Southwick hosted this Mix n' Match evening between Southwick, Steyning and Storrington Camera Clubs.
An evening of fun was had by all, as Eric Burchell judged whether our images matched the image put up by the leader of each round, and which was the best image offered.
The evening was well attended, and cheers and heckling added to the entertainment. At half time, Storrington were leading by one point, the scores were very close at 24, 23 and 22. By the end of the evening, no one had any idea who might have won, but Storrington managed to stay in the lead, with a final score of 48 points. Steyning came second, and the host club did the honourable thing and came third! Eric commented at the end that Storrington winning this event had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that he was judging at Storrington the following week!
The operational team on the night were Di and Daisy squinting at the images in the dark and selecting one for each round which was promptly projected by John, with Martin generally advising, timekeeping and keeping score! The team were enthusiastically supported from the gallery by Ian and Jean, Peter P, Paul, Jane, Liz and Tim.
The next Coffee Club meet will be at Swanbourne Lake on Tuesday August 2nd 10.30. The long range weather forecast according to the BBC is sunshine and cloud but no rain (fingers crossed).
No doubt it will be busy as it is the school holidays but that will apply to most places. It will however have the advantage of all the children feeding the birds which will obligingly repeatedly rise into the air for those of us who are interested to practise BIF photography! The children will therefore save you the bother and expense of bringing your own bird food.
The cafe has an outside area with bench/tables which is pleasant, it overlooks the lake. There are lovely walks round the lake and the riverside is adjacent, not to mention the Wetlands and Arundel itself.
Parking isn’t too bad, some spaces directly opposite the entrance and more a little further on round the bend.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as can make it on Tuesday August 2nd, 10.30.
