AUTUMN FESTIVAL AND SRGC ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
SATURDAY 9 NOVEMBER 2019
 
Location: Burnside Hall (Old Scone Church Hall), Burnside, Scone, PH2 6LP.
Note that this is NOT the hall we have used for the last two years, but the one that we used before that. Directions: take the A94 Perth/Coupar Angus road from Perth. The hall is near the David Douglas Memorial, which is well signposted. As you approach Scone take the first left turn into Cross Street, and then an immediate sharp left into Burnside, which takes you to the hall. There is ample parking. The number 7 bus runs from Perth to Scone.

Reports on the David Boyd event held in June at Lockerbie and the Inverewe Event held in September.

Ian Christie  won class 1 for a portrait  of an alpine with a gentian, closely followed  by Lyn Almond with a sternbergia then Mr Almond  with a corydalis. Michael won class 2 for a plant  in habitat with Dryas  the club emblem. Matt Topsfield had a seaside  shot in that class. If some pics have an odd pink bit it is a  reflection from the overhead  heaters.
