N&EMPF will be taking in prints this year and I will be collecting the Lincolnshire entries.
Normally, I would have collected at the final of the Print Battles but, as you are all aware, this will not be happening this year. Also, I normally deliver the print boxes to N&EMPF at the Memorial Lecture held in October but this year the lecture will be held on Zoom. This lands me with a double problem. I need to arrange collection points and also a date for the delivery of the boxes to the N&EMPF storage depot.
I will be contacting David Gibbins to arrange a delivery date and the decision that comes from that will enable me to set a final collection date from LPA clubs.
In order to enable me to sort out venues for collection I need to know what clubs will be submitting prints. Please note, I am only interested in prints and I know that some clubs may be just entering digitals. The online entry system is already open so maybe some clubs have already put in some entries.
Please ask your members if they intend entering any prints and if you find that your club is going to make a print entry please contact me at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the moment I envisage having three collection locations: Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe and Pinchbeck. Both RB and Louth are local to me and I will be able to collect from them directly. I would appreciate it if Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe and Pinchbeck would get back to me to let me know if they are willing to take in print boxes from the clubs in their areas ahead of me coming to collect.
Please note that everything at my end is at the planning stage and nothing is engraved in stone. How the process gets underway is entirely dependant on you, the LPA clubs giving me the information I require as soon as possible.
