Mid Argyll Camera Club

Programme of events 2018/19

Our programme of events is on this page, or you can view or download it as a PDF file of the leaflet or as a DOC text table.

Meetings are on Wednesdays, and usually last from 7.00 to 9.30pm, with a refreshment break. Most are in the Community Centre, but some may be elsewhere.

We don't all actively participate every evening. But if you want to learn new skills hands-on, or hear comments on your photos (which should be helpful and constructive), the list below suggests what to bring if you can.
