We had 17 people attend the meeting yesterday, which included the AGM and was followed by some excellent food (no surprise there) and presentations of images from Jo, Keith, Joss, Ken, Bert, and myself.

Our thanks once again to Joss for hosting such an enjoyable evening.

The minutes of the AGM can be found here. These also give some information on some dive trips already planned for 2013.



Reminder that the Photosub bbq is at Keith and Jo’s place on 18th August. Also the selection of the Splash in winners by two highly respected photographers from Alan and Veronica Barrett . Arrangement will be as usual, small fee for the meal (£6) and bring your own beverage. Usual people bring sweets if you are able. I will email also.

For those entering the SPLASH IN send your images to me (not JP) . They should be 1400 x 1050 pix and you can enter upto 3. There does not look like being many people entering so if you have images put them in as higher chance of walking away with a prize.



Photosub Splash-In

Well I hope many of you managed to get into the water last weekend and got some images for the Splash in competition in August. I had 9 divers on my charter in Plymouth but only 4 were Photosub members. The conditions were the best I have seen for many a year. Calm both days and on Sunday we were at Eddistone Light which was flat calm.  Excellent visibility too. You will be notified where to send the images in due course for the competition. Rules as apply on the website. In the meantime it would be useful to know how many people will be entering. Drop me an email and let me know.

ps do not forget to contact me re the meeting on 26 May and place your food order.

Photosub Splash-in this weekend

Reminder that the Photosub Splash in dive weekend is this weekend.

You can dive anywhere from Southend to Lands End (south coast) and the judging will be on 18th August at the BBQ.

Please remember to set your camera date and time and we reserve the right to ask to see the raw images. There will be prizes for this competition and the weather is looking good. So good diving. (see full rules).
