On Sunday 12th February, 25 clubs took part in the PDI Championship at Fulbourn near Cambridge. Each club showed 15 images in Round One, aiming for a place in Round Two. The top scoring 10 clubs progressed to Round Two, showing us a further 10 images with all 25 images counting towards the final positions.
This year we had a clear set of winners.
The final results were:
Winning club gaining the EAF Trophy – Beyond Group
Runner up club gaining the Eric Saul Memorial Trophy – Photographic Imaging Co-operative (PICO)
Third placed club receiving a certificate – Cambridge Camera Club
The EAF representatives at the PAGB Inter-Club PDI Championship to be held in Warwick in July will be PICO, who have already qualified due to reaching the final last year, plus Beyond Group and Cambridge who will now be invited. It is a good event, and our representatives would welcome some support. Tickets need to be bought in advance through the PAGB website.
