Today saw the 25th Annual KCPA Audio Visual competition hosted by the KCPA.
Many thanks to all the audience members who came along to Crowborough Community Centre on 26th January 2019 for the rescheduled 2018 competition. We had a good attendance of 56 people, who were all able to sit back and view the 30 sequences entered by 16 club members & judged by Bernard Turnbull, ARPS, DPAGB.
The whole event was a team effort with some of our Audio Visual workers working together with the KCPA to put on the event. We are grateful for the help of Jane Puncher, and Penny Lewington from the KCPA committee and that of the following Audio Visual workers from various clubs: Ray Beckwith, Philip Smithies, Don Foster, Jean Mills, Lynette Benton, Ray Bridges, Ann Bridges. Colin Monk, and Bob Sherrard.
Organising an event like this is a lengthy business and we did it in 2 months, by working together. I am extremely proud of all those that gave up their time to help make the event a success! If we can achieve this in 2 months, just imagine what we can achieve next time.
We hope you enjoyed today’s competition and, as a result, feel encouraged to produce more AVs.
