The favourite photograph picked by the members was Mike Rubin's Glider on edge of cloud flying over countryside.  More than 100 people visited the Exhibition over the week-end.

 

We had 72 pictures (of a very high standard) on display from 14 entrants.  Thank you to all for taking part and making it a very

successful event.   Thank you also to GHC for the loan of the boards,

Matt & Ben for the table cloths, Gary for his help and Trish for helping me get it altogether

 

A big thank you to Dick and Brenda Bradley for judging the photographs before Dick's wonderful presentation on Gliding Out of Africa.  It was a fitting climax to a wonderfully supported season of winter talks

 

Thank you to all for braving the elements during the winter to join us.

Overall 369  people attended the talks and helped to swell the numbers in the restaurant afterwards.

 

Very best wishes for a good soaring season ahead
