We had our second DPI competition of the year on 12th January and as far as competitions go, this one was cracker! Up for grabs was the Bronze Statuette for Novice followed by the D.Bates Trophy for best all-rounder.
The all-rounders feature 4 images in different categories, and marked individually. The person with the highest mark from all four of their images, wins. The Bronze Statuette was the best individual image overall.
So that's how they do it! Rais and I, aided and abetted by my wife Annette, witnessed the sale of the BPS archive material in 25 lots at Tennants in Leyburn on 4th January. It was a fascinating process for the uninitiated (myself) involving telephone bids and internet bids as well as waves and twitches from people in the room. And so quick! Also there were all sorts of interesting and unusual things on sale too - e.g. a signed second edition of the Origins of the Species by Charles Darwin.
On 15 December a select band of members and partners gathered at Aagrah Midway for our annual Christmas Meal. It is certainly a popular venue - most of us could not get into their carpark at 7pm. Fortunately there is plenty of overflow parking.
