S4C October Competition to be Delayed
To be Merged with November Competition
The S4C (Southern California Council of Camera Clubs) Competition Chair, who also operates the S4C competition software, has had a medical problem. Note that he is recovering fine but has too many things going on at this time along with his recovery.
To give him some relief, S4C is canceling the October competition and merging it with the November competition. We know many of you have gone to great trouble to enter the October competition, but please re-enter those images as the 2 allowed makeups in the November competition (or later if you prefer) in addition to your 2 regular November entries; that is, you can enter up to 4 images in November.
The dates for the November S4C competition are as follows:
- Open Date: October 17
- Close Date: November 7
- Judging Date: November 14
