COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19 pandemic and the non-negotiable Government and Health Authority requirements for managing this crisis, WCC Committee has made the following decisions:

  • Wilsons Prom weekend away is cancelled. If members booked through a company that allows cancellation (e.g. Booking.com), then cancel immediately. If members booked their accommodation direct, then contact the provider and ask for a deferment to allow the booking to be used in 2021. (Note: I had overseas tours, flights and a Luxury Escapes booking for April - May 2020. Flights have all been refunded; all the other bookings have been deferred with a requirement to use the booking before end of 2021.)
  • Full Flight Birds of Prey has been postponed until after restrictions of COVID-19 have been lifted.
  • WCC Committee made a decision on how Comp 2 could progress in liaison with the judge. The judge will evaluate entries remotely, make comments and scores, and then put digital copies of entries, comments and scores on a Powerpoint presentation. This presentation will be available to members.
  • Discussion on a plan for Competition 3 is in progress. Due to Social Distancing requirements, it is almost certain that this competition will be a "Digital only" competition.
  • WCC Committee is meeting (non-face to face) in the near future to put forward a program that continues to engage members with possible presentations from the presenters we have engaged, (one option) and to provide photographic challenges to members.

Without doubt these are very challenging times. Take all the advice from Health Authorities. Keep safe and healthy.

 

Competition 1 - Monochrome & Open

Our judge for this competition was Lisa Law. We see from the results that those who moved from B-Grade to A are certainly making themselves known in the new grade, and it has opened the B-Grade to a whole new pool of winners and place-getters. Congrats to all.

Blue Lotus Water Garden

The first day of autumn saw 16 club members and families head out to the Blue Lotus Water Garden, Yarra Junction.

It has been about nine years since we have been out to the Farm as a Club and those of us who had visited it before noticed a big change with several new areas.

The weather was kind to us, heating up later in the day. Lots of photos were taken of lotuses and water lilies as well as other plants; also looking for birds in the wetland area. All the attendees seem to enjoy the day - well worth the 1½-hour drive!

The Blue Lotus Water Garden is found at 2628 Warburton HWY, Yarra Junction, Victoria 3797, Australia. OPEN December 26 - April 13.
