At the AGM we referred to the post made a year ago which clarified the club’s insurance coverage under SPF policy. To save members having to delve back through the archives, here is a link to that original message:

If you are arranging a group trip on behalf of the club (i.e. a trip where all club members are invited), please contact the SPF General Secretary or the SPF Treasurer, as described in the original message.

Please come along, have your say in the running of the club and share some end-of-season refreshments with fellow members. There will be a collection box for ideas for next year’s set subject competitions, and there will be some surprises!

This Thursday, 19th April we will be meeting at Musselburgh Lagoons for our end of season photoshoot. We will meet at 7pm at the car park beside the boating lake, as shown the map below. You can reach the car park from the B1348 at the far side of the race course. Turn left after the race course onto the coast road and look for the sign post to Levenhall Links just after the end of the 30mph zone. Keep going to the end of the road, as shown in red. The final part of the road is often full of pot-holes. If the pot-holes are a problem, you can park at the side of the road and walk across Levenhall Links. There is also some parking at the side of the B1348 beside the houses (you can walk to the lagoons through the gate at the side of the road).

George Todd will be picking up members who would like a lift from in front of the Brunton Theatre at 6:45pm. Please contact George (georgetodd1957@me.com) if you would like a lift. Please note we will not be meeting at the Fisherrow Centre.

Musselburgh Lagoons contains a bird reserve, where birds can be seen coming home to roost around sunset. There are also ducks and swans on the lake. Bring a long lens and a tripod for the wildlife photography. There will also be trees, wild flowers, old masonry and landscapes to photograph.

The current weather forecast for Thursday evening is “sunny intervals with an 8% chance of rain”. So far so good.
