Comment.







Being the first time that we have collectively judged members entries for a calendar, I think







we can all give ourselves a pat on the back, I may be biased but I think everything went







smoothly and efficiently. No judge to complain about!!!







Well done all – A good meeting.







Once again I am sure we will be able to produce a calendar to be proud of.







Without your help and support I am positive that our group would find it difficult to







continue







Saturday Morning:







I now have all the calendar images on file and taken to the printer. I hope to have a draft







copy next week!!







Printers comment: It looks better than last year!!







Keep Clicking.
