Hello from Carmarthenshire

Hi all

Just moved over to Olympus, been a Canon user for many years and found the 7D with its lenses dragging me down when away on holiday taking photographs. Am a member of a local Camera Club so been on the Welsh photographic scene for a number of years.

Glad to see someone else here who is keen on the Welsh photographic scene and club life. I have been a member of Cwmbran PS for about 28 years and a WPF judge since the early noughties. Also my club's External Competition Secretary. We don't have dealings with clubs out your way but we enter most of the big WPF (and other) south Wales comps.

Hi Ronnie,

In the icons above the message box there is a globe and paper clip symbol. That will allow you to attach the link.

I am the treasurer of Amman Valley CC and we used to enter the Ace of Clubs every year but now sadly we don't meet as we ran out of members but hope to start up again in a new location. I have entered and had acceptances in the Welsh Salon.

I think that I read about your disbanding either on the WPF site or through Newsflash. I hope that you can make a fresh start soon. My club is pretty important to me!
