Thanks to the wonders of technology, it was possible for the club to

conduct two simultaneous Zoom session last night. One meeting covered

the third round of the Interclub event hosted by Hebden Bridge Camera

Club, live, with Sue Gibson taking a leading role there. Whilst, back at

base, James acted as compare for a session he had organised in which

some 20 members gave their scores for 50 images selected from a

previous Interclub competition.


The number of seats at the live event was limited to ten seats for each

participating club. However, Sue has written this account of the events at

Hebden Bridge Camera Club:-


The second of our evenings events was the Interclub 3 rd Round, hosted

via zoom by Hebden Bridge Camera Club.


The Judge for the evening was Stephen Dean LRPS, APAGB, who was

challenged to judge 50 images in several genres; Set subject – Abstract,

Set Theme Travel and General images.


There were high quality images from all clubs and the eight 20’s awarded

overall were from several clubs.

Stephen’s judging was concise, helpful and demonstrated his knowledge

and skill in judging several genres.


Suffice to say that we as a club was very surprised with our result on the

night of 96 points and for the final round on the 2 nd April it is very much to

play for in keeping the trophy!


Meanwhile back at the ranch HPIC members first reviewed the images

and, in teams in separate rooms, aggregated their scores with a view to

providing an average score for their top four. Time was against us and

technology limitations did not help on the night. James recorded the

teams’ average scores and then revealed how close we were to the

judge’s assessment. As expected, there were one or two occasions when

we wondered at the divergence of our scores and that of the judge.


Members seemed to enjoy the experience and the divergence of scores

stimulated interesting discussions.
