Syllabus Meeting
Monday 11 June 2018

So tonight we had another meeting, this time to discuss the Syllabus covering the next twelve months at the club. Joe Ogden, our Syllabus Secretary had previously drawn up a rough draft syllabus and asked members if they had anything they would like to add. Ian Simpson, our Competitions Secretary suggested changes of dates to work around competitions and the availability of judges. Phil Wainman promised to update the Syllabus section of the website, once the updated syllabus had been sent to him.

Also, Judith and Ian Simpson showed the rough edit of their Synthetic Fibres documentary, which was met with a positive response.

Summer walks & voice over.
Monday 4 June 2018.

So, this week we discussed our Summer Walks and where to go. Eventually it was decided we should go to Halifax Piece Hall and surrounding areas, the Trans Pennine Run, Lytham St Annes (maybe overnight) and a tour of Esholt Sewage Works.... Yes really, apparently you can have a tour of the sewage works and it's quite interesting. Of course, as film makers, we aim to film the places we go and then show our films at the club during the winter months.

Whilst this meeting was going on upstairs, Ian and Judith Simpson were downstairs, recording Ian Ecclestone doing a voice over for a documentary they are working on.
