To all members
At this moment in time the Committee of Moray Camera Club has made the decision to abandon the first half of the season up to the end of December. The current restrictions on all of us make it impossible to hold club meetings as before. At the end of November/early December, the situation will be reviewed to ascertain whether or not a restart of the club can happen on Monday 11 January 2021.
There will be no club competitions taking place prior to January 2021. If the club can restart then we will be able to run some competitions, but not all. in the months from January to end of April. An alternative programme has been prepared to cover this period jan to April and once this is finalised it will be sent out to current members.
Trophies / Certificates 2019-20 Season
Most of the trophies are in foe engraving now that the engraver is back to work, but for this year these will not be going out to the winners. In line with Government guidlines regarding such matters they will be kept on hold and sanitised prior to being awarded next year.
As we have not had this year's AGM the membership fee will remian the same, but assuming we a start in January it will be charged at half price to cover the four months.
This has been cancelled until April 2021 with all motions carried forward to the new date in 2021.
The club exhibition for 2020 has been cancelled. We hope to run an exhibition prior to the start of the club season in the summer of 2021.
Moray CC Committee
At this point all of the Committee have agreed to stay in position, certainly till 2021 AGM. Two members ie, myself John Macgregor and Rae Munro were coming off, but have agreed to stay on until the next AGM, in the meantime Tony Winfield has agreed to take over as Interim President of the club and I would like to thank Tony and wish him every success.
Grampiam Eye 2021
At this time we still intend to run this competition for the 15 clubs in the North East of Scotland. A lot will depend on where we are with Covid and we may be ultimately be forced into running it like Forres CC did this year from a distance, and run the competition digitally.
I would like to wish you all the best over the coming months, hopefull taking some photographs and developing your skills a bit further. Eventuall we will get through this and be able to mee up again properly and safely.
