Thurles & District Camera Club

At our meeting on Wednesday, October 5th Jim Troy had some of his collection of old cameras on display. It was very interesting to see how the photographic hardware has evolved. Jim went into great detail in explaining the workings of all the different models. Our new members had a particular enjoyable experience and had many questions answered.

A change to our programme for next week. On October 19th we will hold our A.G.M. commencing at 8 p.m. followed by the judging of our competition finals which had to be deferred from the original date. W e will have members from Kilkenny Photographic Society who will join us at 9 p.m.

We hold our meeting weekly in Hayes Hotel at 8.30 p.m. All new members are welcome to come along. Don’t’ be put off if you have no camera, or maybe a small compact. Advice and encouragement will be available to all.
