Digicam Group Meeting Report 2nd February 2017

10.05 a.m. Clive welcomed members to the meeting and expressed a warm welcome to Brett Harris a potential new member.

Clive asked members for their opinion on the Annual Dinner held at The Willows in Alford on Wednesday evening 1st February 2017.

Having the Annual Dinner in the evening was a trial run but although everyone had enjoyed it members said they preferred the event to be held at lunchtime. Thoughts for a new venue were invited.

Attendance: 18 and one visitor
