13:00 hrs. Lunch in the Gember Restaurant.
14.00 hrs. Informal Portfolios Review : moderated by Armando Jongejan FRPS.

A short Chapter meeting will be held immediately after the Portfolios Review. The main item will be the programming of future events. An Agenda will be issued separately.

A fee of 20.00€ will be collected from participants on arrival. This includes the cost of the lunch (with tea, coffee, milk, buttermilk & water).

The Museum Entrance Fee of 8.00€ (free for Dutch Museumkaart holders) will be paid individually.

N.B. The final deadline for signing up is 20:00 hrs. on Monday, 19th May.

PORTFOLIOS
Portfolios (prints only): 5-10 images, minimum size 20x30cm, maximum 40x50cm (unmounted, mounted or framed) or small books (preferably with 3 or 4 printed images) to be shown on a large table to enable a "photo walk and talk", moderated by Armando Jongejan FRPS. Although not obligatory, it would very much help our planning if those intending to bring portfolios could let me know in advance.

NOTES
Although this is an RPS event, non-members will be welcome on a “first come, first served” basis.

There are good access and facilities for the diversely able.

We are grateful to the Images International Photography Club who are kindly lending us a screen and a beamer
