CONTRACT WHIST

Meets on the 3rd Friday of the month @ 10.30 - 12.30 at the Spitfire Public House in Kings Hill

Contract whist is a game for 4 people who play as individuals. It follows the principal of all whist games where tricks are won by either the highest card of the suit or a trump. All cards are dealt so each has 13 and then players declare how many tricks they will win - " the contract ". However the final person to declare has to make the total above or below 13 so somebody always has to lose. !! This is where the game becomes competitive. It is however intended to be fun and not taken too seriously. A full explanation  of the rules of our version will be given.

WINE ENTHUSIASTS

A friendly and enthusiastic group for members who enjoy wine and would like to learn more about wine and wine making.

At each meeting a member will give a talk on a topic of their choice, supported by tastings of wines as they feel appropriate. The evening will include general discussion about the chosen wine-related subject.

Topics could include grape varieties, wine regions, wine making techniques, wine and food pairing, selecting and buying wines, the list is endless!

The group will initially meet bi-monthly in members’ homes on the first Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm.

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Monthly meetings are usually based on themes chosen by the members, and the group concentrates on taking pictures on those themes. The convenor then displays them for critique and discussion at the meetings. Cloud - based sharing is used along with other means of viewing our work.

Many a great photo has been taken using an inexpensive camera or made to look amazing using free software – it’s not what you have but what you do with it that counts!

Both experts and beginners can share and learn how to compose and take good pictures; and to edit, enhance, manipulate and reprocess them on a computer. Photography trips to local places of interest are arranged from time to time.

We also view various elements of photography and useful tips, which can be found on Photography DVDs or YouTube.
