Wed 6 Jan 2016 - PAGB AWARDS FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC MERIT

7:30pm

Even if you are not interested in an Award for yourself there will be loads of great pictures to look at and, if you are interested, all (or at least some) of the information you need.  We could run an extra night if anyone would like to see more and perhaps bring a few of your own pictures to see if you are in the "ballpark".  Anyone interested?
