The event is FREE to attend but you must register. 
This is your opportunity to see and enjoy some of the best AV sequences from members of L&CPU clubs.
This year we have received a record entry of 47 sequences from 14 clubs and the good news is that you don't have to brave going out in the bad weather and travelling to watch the competition taking place ....the event is taking place on Zoom and is FREE!!
The entries have all been sent to the Judge Alastair Taylor ARPS CPAGB-AV from the Midland Counties PF who will be making constructive comments on all entries.

The day will start at 10:15 am and run through to around 6 pm with a 45 minute break for lunch around 1pm.
Short 10 minute breaks are also scheduled throughout the day.

To enable us to know numbers attending please register for FREE through Eventbrite using the following link

ZOOM  PRESENTATIONS

Some North Wales clubs have been having Zoom presentations and these have been very successful.   Not only is it possible to see the work of excellent photographers whom we could not possibly afford to invite to our clubs, but we don’t have to drive home in the dark!

The Conwy club recently sent out an invitation for other people to attend their evenings and it would be good to know which other clubs would be happy to have visitors.

It would also be useful to share some recommendations of speakers who have been inspiring.

Please  send me some details I will publish in my next Newsletter.
