Another master of the art of photography with an international reputation, who is both modest and unassuming, but nevertheless very interesting and witty.

Important Panel Mounting Information
We have hired the mounting panels from another SACC Club. The method they recommend for fixing mounted prints is with Velcro which is removable without a tool. Therefore we would most politely request that all member clubs competing in the panel competition only use this method.
For those who have never used this method of mounting. You need 2 types of Velcro to enable them to lock together, namely the hook & mesh. These should be cut into 2 to 3 inch strips and fixed diagonally in each corner on the back of the mount. Firstly fit the hook Velcro removing the tape covering the adhesive, then press the mesh Velcro into the hook section, keeping the adhesive tape intact until ready for mounting. But not to worry there will be plenty of help on the day if you are unsure.
We also politely request that the boards be totally cleaned when you remove your prints.
We would also appreciate that all prints remain in position until after the judging results, as this exhibition will be open to the public and will be extensively publicised in the Local & County press, also on local radio stations.

For the Photographers Partner (if a non-photographer); If the weather is fine Dungarvan & County Waterford holds a wealth of Scenic Walks & Drives, in fact far too many to detail here, but we will ensure there is literature available in the Hotel and B&B.
If poor weather there is a multiplex cinema close by, showing the latest film releases.

The Last Word (for the moment).
Should you have any problems or queries you may contact me on 051 293838 or 0871236810
