Last Monday was the occasion of the ‘One from Each’ interclub battle with our friends from Loughton Camera Club. This year it was Edmonton’s turn to act as the host Club with the judge being Alison Jenkins ARPS DPAGB LMPA BPE1.
The competition was initiated to ensure greater involvement of the entire membership, of both Clubs, in an interclub battle. To that end each competing member has a least one entry submitted to the event. At the time of conception, the Clubs were of approximate equal size in terms of the numbers of members and their ‘awards’ or ‘qualifications’. Since then, the competing membership of Loughton has grown. Therefore, Edmonton were required to submit additional entries from some of their members to produce an equal number.
The result of each of the previous battles has gone in Loughton’s favour, albeit on occasion by the narrowest of margins. As a result, Edmonton were keen to turn the tables on this occasion if possible. At the conclusion that is what occurred as Edmonton won by a margin of 20 points. The final scores were 682 to Edmonton and 662 to Loughton.
Six members of Edmonton scored a maximum 20 points from an image. Those members were and their images were:
Vic Cox with ‘Melbourne Gaol’
John Knightly with ‘The Winning Curve’
Andrew Ridley with ‘Drop the Salad’
Robert Snary with ‘I’m Just Grabbing a Bite to Eat’
Marilyn Steward with ‘Afternoon Rain’ and
Sue Webster with ‘Gannet Fight’
It was a great way to conclude the final competition of the 2020 / 21 Club Year. Loughton CC are the hosts next season, and we look forward to returning to their venue at Lopping Hall.
