<FONT face=Arial color=black>On Wednesday 5th May we shall hold our monthly Practical evening, where members can practice with the clubs studio lighting either in portraiture or table top. This evening can be a chance just to have an informal evening chatting about photography.

<FONT face=Arial color=black>Also o­n 5th May Canterbury Camera Club are hosting the annual Eurotunnel Battle between Gateway, Deal, Canterbury and ourselves; these Battles are always a good evening as it is inspiring to see other clubs work in a friendly atmosphere. It is unfortunate that both these events clash o­n the same evening so members will be torn as to which to go to!
