North Berwick Photographic Society meets in the Abbey Church Hall in Church Road, North Berwick, East Lothian. Meetings are every second Thursday from September to April. The club also has a varied range of outings from May to September.

The Match-an-Image Challenge Trophy competition at home against Biggar Camera Club was postponed from 1st March, due to heavy snow, until 26th April.

Neil Scott FRPS of Edinburgh Photographic Society gave us an excellent talk on "KISS", illustrated by many superb photos "keeping it simple stupid".

"Rail Adventure in the Balkans", a talk by club member Ian Goodall, told the story, through over 400 photos, of Ian and his wife Sheila's adventure last summer by rail through the Balkans. Visiting every Balkan country apart from Kosovo and Albania, highlights included the relaunched sleeper train to Istanbul, the railway journey through Montenegro and the rebuilt bridge in Mostar.

At an inter-club meeting against Midlothian Camera Club in a Match-an-Image judge Stephen Lipton gave North Berwick the result we deserved, making amends for our narrow defeat last year. A victory too at our annual Haddington Camera Club meeting in a 20-images-each competition on "Water", judged by Charles Summers. We visited Beeslack Penicuik Camera Club for a Match-an-Image competition which North Berwick won by the narrowest of margins. However, this year at Roslin in the annual "8-way" competition, judged by Graeme Webb, against other 'local' clubs we didn't do as well as last year when we won best overall image. Congratulations to Musselburgh Camera Club, this year's "8-way" winners.
