Ditto. Have attended Shropshire PS in Shrewsbury but never entered any competitions. They do like their acronyms and set great store by success in 'Salons'. The visiting judges are a joke, and I don't like 'competing' in my photographic or musical endeavours. Despite the above, the club's exhibition at Bear Steps has a suprising mix of nice images and they're a really friendly crowd.

We're based in Shropshire around Shrewsbury, so if anyone is based in Shropshire, Powis etc. and is interested then give me a pm.
Have filled in the form on the Marches group website, sounds my cup of tea. I'll go and see your exhibition at the Gateway too. In case anyone is local there's one about War Graves at The Gateway from 3rd to 21st November.
