It was really great last night to have the Ashtorre buzzing again with around 25 in attendance for the 'Nightime' merit competition.
Lovely to see the likes of Paul, Simon and Mike who had not visited for a while, so look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Well done to everyone who entered and to the winners. A great show of images.
An interesting statistic is that from the 22 entries in the projected, 20 scored points while in the colour prints there were 16 entries and 15 scored points.
I wondered if it would have been educational if during the period when the scores were being collated, the authors of some selected images explained to
others how the picture was achieved and what camera settings etc. were used. I am sure that a lot would find this useful for future uses.
Plymouth Camera Club last night hosted the annual Tamar Trophy competition for mono prints contested between Plymouth, Plymstock, Ivybridge and ourselves
where Petro Landers of Milton Combe was the judge.
The hosts ensured we were as covid safe as possible by increasing the size of the room, spacing the seating with larger gaps and ensuring there was plenty of ventilation,
so it was a shame that a few more from our club did not make the effort to attend.
After giving his good points and recommended improvements to each entry as judges do, marks were awarded from 11 to 20 for each.
After all the judging was complete, the marks were totaled and we came a creditable 3rd which seems to be traditional.
Plymouth 172, Plymstock 153, Saltash 147 and Ivybridge 143.
Dan's 'Modern Man' and Mike's 'Trials Car' were our top scorers with 18 each, while Plymouth had 2 with a maximum score of 20 together with 2 at 19, while Plymstock had 1 with the top score and 1 with 19.
What a fantastic evening we had last night at the Ashtorre for the judging of our Colour Print Trophy. There were about 20 members present and it was
great to see so many there, so thank you for coming. Let's hope that numbers will now grow from this and return to what we remember.
Shame that time did not allow for us to socialise more but hopefully we can do so in the weeks to come.
Last nights judge Simon Van - Orden from Samford Spiney was very thorough with his critiques giving us the good points and suggesting ways to improve.
The results were as follows,
Highly Commended, Dave Pemberton, Jason Donavan and Jason again.
3rd Kay Wilson, 2nd Dan Foote, Winner Kay Wilson.
Well done to you all.
