Howard Bagshaw – 1st place in the 2017 AV competition
There was a good attendance of well over 60 people from 14 L&CPU clubs who, along with the President of the L&CPU, Garth Tighe, enjoyed seeing all the 36 sequences that had been entered into the competition.
Be advised that L&CPU treasurer Gordon Jenkins is currently in an enfeebled state of mind due to a virus condition, and was heard to utter the following from his sick-bed:
“Tell Ashton Under Lyne Ps, Alsager CC, Bebington PS, Burnley CC, Great Harwood CC, Heswall PS, Holmes Chapel Ps and Prestwich CC I will forgo the late penalty clause if receive a cheque for the full amount due by Friday 12th January, after that the Penalty clause will be invoked.”
You are probably aware that the PAGB have taken a decision to adopt a new standard resolution of 1600pixel by 1200 pixel for images entered into competition from July 2017.
At a recent L&CPU, executive committee meeting it was decided that we should also adopt and phase in this new resolution beginning with the next Annual Club Competition in March 2017.
We will continue to accept the 1400 x1050 format in L&CPU Competitions, along with smaller image sizes. However, we strongly suggest that you do not submit image sizes smaller than 1400 x 1050, as they will be significantly smaller when projected onto the screen.
This proposed move however does not mean your club need to upgrade your projector, as the increase in pixel size is only a requirement of entry into L&CPU & PAGB competitions.
Further reading on this subject can be seen in the PAGB e-news issues 161 extra April2016 and 169 August 2016.

Today the PAGB held it’s 20th Inter-club Print Championship in Ormskirk and I am happy to report that all our L&CPU representatives performed well with Wigan 10 Foto Club finishing worthy winners just ahead of Dumfries. Robert Millin from Wigan 10 said “We are very pleased to have represented the L&CPU bringing home the trophy and adding it to the PAGB PDI Inter-club trophy that we won in July. It is a stunning achievement to hold both of the PAGB’s major club trophies at the same time and we are proud of that fact for both our club and our federation.”
