The November Meeting - 'AGM'
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the club was held at the November meeting with all current members re-elected for another term.
One person that was overlooked at the meeting in which the President apologizes for not mentioning her in his report, was Jill Hancock, a former Treasurer who stood down from the committee after a number of years to undergo her love of travel during her and hubby's retirement. Jill will remain a member and the club thanks her for efforts on the Committee and wishers her the best in her travels.
Please check out the Committee page for the Officer Bears for this year.
The November Meeting - 'Set Subject' - 'Backlit'
A great roll up for the November meeting. Our Judge for this 'Backlit' Competition was Vera Cumow who also supplied a audio/visual of some of his work, which was appreciated by the members.
It was great to see John and Denise Organ back for the meeting during their stay in Albury with their daughter.
Members are reminded that images are due in December for Open Subject and images for the Photographic Challenge 'Summer' due in January.

The Albury Show 2015
The 2015 Albury Show was a great success despite the periods of rain. The numbers were only slightly down on last year, with the rain on midday on Saturday
accounting for the drop. After that the crowd picked up and were on par with previous years.
Entries for the Photography section were rewarding with some quality images on display.
We had the side awing for the photography section to ourselves to try our this year, with only poor lighting the only drawback.
A big thank you to Debbie and her helpers, for setting up and pulling down the competition.
Chiltern Wildflower Shoot Sunday 27th of September
Our Chiltern wildflowers outing and workshop was well attended by members.
We meet along the Yackandandah Road and then proceeded to the location in the Chiltern Forrest. The early breeze was a little annoying, however seemed to carm down during the morning.

The Paatsch Challenge Shield 2015
This year Benalla Camera Club's hosted the event with the theme being 'Finding the Past at Beechworth'. The competition is held each year between the Wodonga/Albury and Benalla Camera Clubs and takes the form of the hosting club
choosing a date/ location/ theme and both clubs meeting for a photo shoot.
Each club chooses 12 images to represent the club. The hosting club then sends all the images (EDI) to a judge for scoring. Later in the year the two clubs meet up for a 'presentation day',
and to find out the winner of the Paatsch Shield.
This year there was a good attendance from both club.
The images are away for judging.
Watch this space for details of the presentation which will be held this year at Eldorado.
Astrophotography Workshop - May 2015
On Sunday night 17th of May, Mark Slater conducted for the club an astrophotography
workshop at Bellbridge on the Hume Weir.
This workshop had to be conducted at short notice because it was dependent on weather conditions.
It looked like we were in for a cold night, however the weather was quite pleasant and so was the night, which was well attended by members.
A big thank you to Mark for his time and effort on the night.
