The Otaihanga Boating Club venue provides a nice view of the Waikanae River and the Weggery Drive area.

About half of the 60 or so who attended last night seemed to be visitors so it must have been regarded a success.  After the barby, cakes and cookies there was a slide show of members’ photos, mostly from last year’s field trips, followed by questions on the program for the year.

Competition displays are called salons (not saloons 🙂 ) and the judges are pretty experienced.  Members can use Photoshop on their entries provided the image capture is their own.

The programme brochure is shown.

Individual membership is only $50 a year.
