Yes, we know it’s Labour Weekend and you are probably out and about, or even away.

But fight your way through that traffic and get to the Otaihanga Boating Club by 7:30 pm on Monday to see Fred Wotton judge the Spring Salon entries, and show some of his own work.

Best of Year Entries

Each member can enter one digital image and one print. There are no “grades” for this end of year competition.

Each image entered must have been entered into one of the four Salons held during the year, or be fundamentally based on it (for example, small improvements in line with judge’s comments at the original competition are acceptable).

The Best of Year entries will be judged by John Boyd at our gala end of year function on Monday 23 November starting at 6:30 pm, at the Otaihanga Boating Club.  Details have been emailed to all members.  Please pay online if possible, or by cash to Treasurer Jo Goudsblom at a meeting.  Jo will have tickets available at all meetings, starting with the meeting on Labour Day Monday.
