Great to see a good turnout of members at NIPA R1, in 6th position overall for the 1st round joint with Ards Camera Club. Starred image for Paul and Damian made it an excellent score for the first entry of Westcourt Camera Club. Danny got the right idea asking the judges to qualify their opinion on the entry. Getting on the top board is a big point and hopefully, it bodes well for the rounds ahead.
