External Competitions Secretary Amanda Wright reports:
EHHPS met Field End in the first NWFed Semi-Final, held at Harrow Camera Club on Tuesday, with EHHPS members Paul, Brian, Dennis and Emmanuel defying the inclement weather to join Amanda for the event.
The Judge for the evening was Mark Buckley-Sharp.
The PDI section ended in a draw, with both clubs scoring 162. Ealing’s top scorers were The Fan by Shaun Hodge and Missy Marlene by Karen Helle, both securing the only two 20’s permitted in this competition. Other EHHPS top scorers were Night Watchman by Emmanuel and Clematis by Ania Taylor, both scoring 19.
Sadly the Print section which preceded was another story, with the total scores being 155 to Ealing and 164.5 to Field End. EHHPS top score was 19 which was awarded to Ania Taylor for Dreamy Pastels and we had three 18’s which were I know, I know and Mauricia by Paul Mason and Poppies by Ania Taylor.
So the dream of a place in the final was not to be, but at least EHHPS made it to the Semi-Final this year - something we haven’t achieved for some time.
Field End go through to the final and will battle against either Harrow or Wycombe who have their Semi-Final on Thursday at Watford.
