about our club
As a club, we have decided to commence the new season as usual on Thursday 1st October at 7.30pm. However, we are going to be holding virtual meetings until at least the new year. This is due to a number of factors including, but not limited to, the logistics of keeping everyone safe and adhering to the current guidelines.
This does mean a few changes to our usual programme of activities, as we will be unable to enjoy our more practical based evenings for the moment. We have worked on a number of ideas to keep the programme varied, interesting and with something to appeal to all. As part of this, we will be offering a mix of our usual competitions, which will be judged via Zoom, members critique evenings, speakers who are happy to use Zoom and in place of our indoor practical evenings, we will aim to have outdoor evening shoots, which can be done under government guidelines.
To reflect these changes in the meetings, we have also decided to offer two types of membership for the upcoming year. A ‘virtual only’ membership, this is aimed at those who would not feel it safe to attend a physical meeting or outdoor workshop for the foreseeable future and would not want to attend in person even in the New Year. This type of membership will also be offered to anyone who does not live locally who may wish to join in with our programme of activities. This will cost £20 for the year, and can be upgraded at any point should circumstances change. The second membership type will be a ‘Full’ membership and is for those who wish to join as usual and would be interested in outdoor workshops and face-to-face meetings with appropriate measures in place. This will be at a reduced rate of £30 for the upcoming year.
We meet most Thursdays from 7.30 pm to 9.30pm from October to Easter. Have a look at our calendar page for full details of meeting dates.
