Annual Event: Splash-in Review. Brian Pitkin will recap the events of the weekend in Plymouth and show the winning images.

Focus On - Wide-angle reef scene. The Competition is now closed. There were a total of 10 entries, so no pre-selection has been carried out. The Competition slideshow is now available. You will be asked to log in if you have not done so this session.

Summer Party: Come eat, drink, chat and bring images with questions for some coaching. We will have some nibbles to keep you going (just a few - not a meal like the Christmas party!).

Cameras Underwater, Ocean Leisure Cameras, Ocean Optics and Underwater Visions will all be there to answer your questions and show some new toys.

And if you would like some coaching or advice bring a few images on a stick (no more than 3 or 4 please) and we will have some experts lined up to give you their thoughts. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity please let Martha Tressler know by email so we have an idea of numbers.
