Friday December 2nd 7.30pm -
From Polar Bears to Penguins
Lee & Bernadette Kitchingman (Both AFIAP, CPAGB, BPE2*)
Lee and Bernadette enjoy visiting colder regions, either above the Scandinavian Arctic Circle or around Antarctica. Tonight, they will be in search of Polar Bears in Svalbard and King Penguins in South Georgia. Wildlife photography is their passion. Lee specializes in video - he converted to high definition four years ago - while Bernadette specializes in digital still images. Both have had significant success with their images in national and international competitions.
Bring along your cold weather gear as they absorb you in close encounters with fascinating creatures from both Polar Regions. The evening will include a variety of wildlife, mingled with some interesting polar history. As usual this evening will be open to the general public, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Saturday December 3rd
Great Northern AV Competition
A National AV competition open to anybody resident in the British Isles and to overseas members of British AV Groups. There is a special prize for the best beginner's sequence, so this is an excellent opportunity to see both National/International standard AV and what can be achieved by relative newcomers, all in one competition.
Finishing time will depend on the number of entries
