Can you each bring a photograph (old or new), members with an entry will be asked to comment on a photo other than their own, then all members will mark each entry out of 20 on a score sheet. Prizes for the top three - decided by a show of hands if marks are equal.

For those who can, please bring an old photo of yourself or another member, then during the break we can all have a laugh - no, I mean try and guess who they are!!

If time permits, Doug will do a little slide quiz to round off the night.

Please don't forget to bring a contribution for the buffet, and a raffle prize (we all get a free ticket and we all get a prize).

If you don't want to take part in any of the above it doesn't matter, just come along and enjoy yourself.
