CRC's 30th. Anniversary
April 28th. 2001

Another very enjyable gathering. This time in the small village of Briston in Norfolk. Kindly hosted by Sandra & Kevin Craske. A small but appreciative audiance with a lively A.G.M. followed by a brilliant Print Exhibition and talk by Margary & Kevin Maskell. Bill Reid presented an unedited mix of slides from his latest outings with his camera, using CRC Bulk Konicachrome film, processed in a Jessop own brand kit and Kevin Craske completed the day with a very fine AVR of a visit to Disney Land, Paris, using four projectors, on a home-built stand and his own computer set-up p, using downloaded MP3 sound files for the musical accompaniment. The synconisation was excellent.

To celabrate the CRC's 30th Anniversary, Rita Pearle cut a cake, especially baked for the Club and the members present.

A full report, with pictures appears in the July 2001 CRCN (102) and in the Web Site pages. Below are a few chosen or your interest......


The CRC AGM and Open Meeting was held on Saturday April 8th at Rushwick, Worcester. here was a very good turn out, although it would be nice to see numbers increase at this event. It was nice meeting some new faces. There were five Slide Foio members and it was nice putting faces to members whos sides I have been viewing and marking for many years now.

After the AGM there was a nice exhibition of colour and B&W prints to inspect. These included samples of John pearles' Silver Image' prints which are very unusual and make a good conversation piece. After a pleadant interval where the ladies srrved light refreshments it was visiting guest Bernard Brown to carried the rest of the afternoon with his excellent 3-D demonstration, using four projectors and ocassional computer imaging to compose some of the finest 3-D effects seen in a long time,. Many thanks to Bernard for coming along and making a very interesting. (CRC Editor).
