PCC News:

  • Firstly what a fabulous Christmas meal we had last Sunday. It was great to see so many members tucking in to the hearty meal they served us at Truro Golf Club – thoroughly enjoyable. Plus what an amazing raffle we had, with so many prizes. Well done to Karen and team for organizing our little “do”, and I’m sure we are all looking forward to thenext one.

  • In other news our three-way Inter-Club Battle on Monday at Carnon Downs with Truro and Falmouth Camera Clubs didn’t quite go how we planned, but nevertheless it was a good evening for meeting some old friends and it also gave us a lot to talk about !

As per my PCC Member’s Facebook page post the results were as follows: Prints: Truro 181, Falmouth 165, Penryn 155.DPIs: Truro 169, Penryn 168, Falmouth 161Overall: Truro 350, Falmouth 326, Penryn 323.

In other words despite being last in the Prints we were second in the DPIs and most importantly we WON the raffle.

It was a good social evening and lessons were learned so thanks to everyone who submitted work and came and supported your club

  • Finally last night’s meeting was really fun with Mandy’s “Lucky Dip” and the lucky winners were ....
