The annual interclub competition with Banbury took place last night at the clubhouse. As usual the competition was close, with SPG leading by 18 points at the break. This lead was pegged back slightly by the end, with SPG winning overall by 16 points.
John Haines from Great Barr acted as Judge and provided a helpful commentary on the 24 prints from each Club. He drew attention to elements of composition, storytelling power & ways of emphasising the message, tonal balance, & attention to detail. As usual his style was relaxed and humorous – Good Job!
It was pleasing to see new member Suzanne James score 15 for ”Monk at Angkor Wat”, a score ahead of quite a few experienced workers from both teams!
Our top scoring entries were
20 Mother Wildebeeste with Newborn – Mary Kirkby
19 Great Central Departure -Malcolm Ranieri
17 Worcester Cathedral - Phil Welch
17 Miss Palmer - Dick Prior
17 Homeward Bound - Malcolm Ranieri
18 The Guardian - Mary Kirkby
18 Hand Off - Dick Prior

All the rest were 16 and under , but we had only 3 scores below 15, whereas Banbury had 10, but the lowest score of the night went to Banbury with 12.
The only disappointment was the turnout at the meeting from our members - 11; Banbury fielded 4 – so that’s 15 – a few biscuits back in the box then!
