The event will be held at the Canberra Club, Whalley Road, Samlesbury, starting at 7.30pm.

Our old friend and PAGB President Gordon Jenkins will be the judge on the night.

The competition rules are by each club in turn projects and image, the other two clubs then have 30 seconds to project a matching image. The judge then decides on how good the match is and awards one point, with a second point being awarded for the best of the 3 images.

The audience is encouraged to express their opinion on which is the best match, highly biased of course to their own image.

We need two volunteers to help select the images on the night plus a person to keep the score. Anyone interested contact Stephen on:- contactppspresident1@gmail.com

Most importantly we need vocal supporters to help sway the judge in favour of our own entries.
