Well, what a session. The Tuesday night meeting hosts a practical session four times a year and last night was our second event of this type this year. I have to say I think everyone had a great time.
We had dry ice, smoke machines, witches, autumnal trinkets and props, glasses, lasers and lots and lots of mist! I think everyone had a great time and very many people came up to me and said how much they all learned. That is what it is all about!
I just wanted to say two things. First, everyone who takes part in these evenings, gain a great deal from their participation. Secondly, we are not a training facility. So these sessions are meant to be fun and photographically challenging. I think both of those were achieved last night. And even the members who did not bring cameras had great fun posing and setting out challenging displays to photograph.
I am glad it was a success. The practical team put a lot of effort into helping to set up these events. There is much to be done and a great deal of rushing around on the night to set it all up and to help people. So I would like to convey my thanks and best wishes to the the following members who put so much effort into the evening last night.
So, thanks to Ray, enthusiastic and supportive as well as really knowledgeable. Thanks to Pat for her continued support, enthusiasm and the help she gave people. To Pippa for her enthusiastic and supportive attitude as well as her help with members. To Steven for his help, contribution, and ever present good humour. To Andy, thanks for his smoke machine. And to you, the members, for turning up and helping to set out; for taking an active part in the event, and for having fun. It is all about that.
A good time was had by all. However, if anyone has ideas or suggestions on how to improve on our practical evenings your ideas are welcome. Please let us know. Our practical evenings are held for members and so your continued participation, interest and enthusiasm is not only appreciated but essential.
