One Shot 2022-2023

Presentation Director: Jake Mosser
Coordinator: Susan Mosser
Equipment: Rick Cloran


Recap of 2022-2023 competition: One of the most fun evenings was held on April 3 - our One Shot competition. This particular night had a lot riding on it - the women haven't won in three years and they were desperate to get the trophy turned around. A last minute surprise and a very encouraging display had Cheryl Vossmer appear in a red blow-up slinky type person! It was hilarious and got everyone in the mood for a rowdy evening. Which it was!!!!

A contest of 29 images between the men and women of the club. The women had a very strong start by winning the first four categories. The men then got a couple and a back-and-forth ensued. It was a respectable showing by both sides - tied three times during the evening. For the first time in a long time, the judges had to do a coin flip to decide which image was to get the nod. The Footwear category had each of the judges firmly planted in their decision on the winning image. The toss resulted in the Men's image carrying the day. At image 26, the score was tied. But the last three images WENT TO THE WOMEN!!!!

It was a very close evening. But the final score was Women - 16 and Men - 13. Congrats FINALLY to the Women! A good showing by everyone. Great fun was had by all. It was nice to see a full hall and lots of red worn by the women and sports paraphenalia worn by the men. Ladies - this year we did it! We were finally able to change that blasted trophy at the front of the hall!!!! Go ladies, go ladies, go ladies!!!

A special thanks to our judges: Mary and Fred Boucher, Merrimack Valley Camera Club members. Their bantering was hilarious! Thanks so much Mary and Fred!
