EAF 2016 PDI Club Championship

Bishop’s Stortford Camera Club made a very creditable appearance at the East Anglian Federation PDI Club Championship coming a very creditable 22nd out of 31 entrants…but only 7 points off making the second round. The big news, however, was the fact that Bishop’s Stortford’s very own Linda Lamb achieved the only 15/15 of the day and therefore image of the day for “Happy Dog” a great achievement when pitched against 595 images from 31 clubs. Well done Linda!
