Ideally, bring photographs in the new format that you are planning to use this season but you may prefer to see if there are differences in older images.  Details of how to submit images for this evening are on the Bulletin Page.

Also - the draw for the forthcoming Tombola Night.  Be there to find out what you have to photograph for the 28th!  More information...
