The Syllabus contains information on the activity for each meeting i.e. a competition, a practical evening, a talk, member's evenings etc. Also, the hand-in nights for entries into competitions are noted. Occasionally an event may have to be changed at short notice but we try to give as much notice as possible if this happens.
Further information, for example meeting nights where members are required to bring in specific photographic equipment for practical sessions, is shown in the Syllabus and calendar entries within the members only Newsgroup. A downloadable version of the Syllabus can also be accessed on this page, it covers a period of 6 months. It is a foldable design on an A4 sheet to provide a handy pocket sized Syllabus. The downloadable file for the following 6 months will be made available before the current version "expires"
