Aggregate DPI competition 26th Feb 2020

Last evening, the club held its third aggregate DPI competition of the season.  There were a good number of entries and it was particularly encouraging to see such excellent quality images in the intermediate section.  It was also great to see some new names taking the top spots in that section.  The advanced section also had a high number of superb images and our judge, Kirsty Ralfs, had quite a task to separate the good from the great.  As always, Kirsty’s judging was thorough, to the point and very informative. We would like to thank Kirsty for another excellent evening.

The results were as follows:
Intermediate:
20 – Mike Elmes (1st Place); James Roylance (2nd Place); Dave Mardon (3rd place)
19 – Mike Elmes; Bruce English; Carole Humberstone
18 – Dave Mardon
Advanced:
20 – June Hill (1st place); Janine Ball (2nd place); Mary Venables (3rd place)
19 – Mary Venables; June Hill; Janine Ball
18 – Mary Venables; Mark Vella; Dave Longley; Diana Janes; Ian Howard; Julie Elmes; Janine Ball
