Macro quiz night – how close can you get?
Macro and ‘normal’ images of familiar items are submitted to Tony at least a week before. He will prime the laptop with the close ups and produce the quiz sheet.  In the second half we find out what they were. The more you enter, the greater chance you have of winning up to a maximum of tem images each.  Last year’s winner was Nick Steadman.
