The Paatsch Shield Challenge
As WACC was this years host of the annual challenge, the Jindera Pioneer store was choosen as the venue with the theme being 'Pioneer'.
The Presentation took place at the Wangarratta Club on the 11th of September.
This year's winner was the Wodonga/Albury Camera Club by the small margine of only 4 points. The best image was won by Monika King with Vicki Cain second. The third place was taken out by Benalla's Jen Fawkes. The Merrit place getters were: Barb Colman BCC, Greame Milsome WACC, Linda Bourke BCC, Jen Fawkes BCC and Sean King WACC.
Congradulations to both clubs and it looks like Benalla is well poised to take out the Shield in the coming years.
