The final meeting of the Group before the summer break took place on another beautiful sunny evening on 30/6/15 when we gathered at the Courthouse, Midleton for a scavenger hunt.
We divided into four groups and were given the following random themes, Connects, Reflective, Informative and Wasteful, which were computer generated just before the 7pm 'off'. The aim was to capture and submit one image per theme per group which would be judged later at the Midleton Park Hotel.
From 8.30pm the groups returned to the hotel and submitted their entries in turn and, following some sorting of the sixteen images, the judging began. With only an hour and a half allotted for shooting the images, the interpretation of the themes produced some great shots and, with absolutely no post-processing, the images were judged straight from camera. With the members voting in their groups, tallying the marks was fast and so results were available very quickly.
The results were as follows:
In third place with 224 points was Group C: Gráinne Davies, Noelle Lowney, Jim Curtin and Joe Keniry.
In second place, with 230 points, was Group D: Finbarr O'Shea, Michael Hickey and Eileen Upton.
In first place, with 234 points, was Group B: John Tait, Lorna O'Dwyer and James Brady.
The deserving winners were presented with a beautifully themed cake created by the wizard confectioners at Day's Eurospar Whitegate. The cake remained with the winners long enough to have their photo taken with it and thereafter, was sampled by all in attendance!
